Brydie and Celia have been busy downunder making Rosetta rolls and I am joining in here as I got the right press at last from Germany.
This is my first try using a white sourdough, so not the right dough, but I am on the trail now of the right one. Didn’t stop Brian eating four of these last night however. In the meantime do visit their beautiful blogs and read their Rosetta posts.

I have just sent away for a sourdough starter, So i will be back to look at your rolls again soon i hope, fingers crossed!
How exciting Cecilag! Looking forward to hearing all about your sourdough adventures :)
Oh I love that your rolls actually look like little star shaped flowers! Mine look like rolls with a pattern on the top! :) I love the sourdough versions, but look forward to seeing your yeasted ones!
It’s all far too exciting, I am going to have to go and lie down ;)
They look lovely. I think that Brydie, Celia and yourself are very bad influences and my bank balance doesn’t like it. I do though…. just waiting for a delivery from Bakery Bits so I can play along. Not rosettas though.
Your sourdough looks lovely, what kind of dough do you think would be best for showcasing the presses?
I am so pleased that we are bad influences in the cause of fabulous home made bread :) I am trying out an Italian dough recipe tomorrow and will see how it goes and let you know. Have a look at Celia’s and Brydie’s posts where they have written up their doughs properly. This white sourdough was I think, but I can’t remember as I kind of just made it as I went. 150 g starter (100% hydration) 500 g flour and 300 g water, 9 g salt, 70 g dough per ball, baked at 230 C for 18 minutes. I was trying to make it a bit dryer than usual. I didn’t write notes on the timings I’m afraid, I’m getting a bit lazy…
Oooo, you got the middle bit to come right up! They look lovely and if Brian ate four of them I say the dough you were using wasn’t a bad one at all ;-)
The rolls are walking out of my kitchen, my starter can hardly keep up.
I was most surprised at the little middles popping up like that too :) I have no idea why they did that. The week before when I made them with the other cutters they were very flat… who knows what was going on… (scratches head)
Those rosettas are rad! looking
Thanks, I made some completely different ones yesterday, flipped them to prove and they look nothing like.. ;)
