Kaiser Rolls (side)

Kaiser Rolls (side)

Yield: 16 Rolls


  • 2 pkg. (¼ oz. ea.) rapid-rise dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110 to 115 degrees), divided
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar, divided
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 6 to 6½ cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tsp. cold water
  • Poppy and/or sesame seeds


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in ½ cup warm water. Add 1 tablespoon sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the oil, salt, remaining warm water and sugar and 4 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 16 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Beat egg white and cold water; brush over rolls. Sprinkle with poppy and/or sesame seeds. Using scissors, cut a cross on tops of rolls, ¼ in. deep.
  5. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
