These delicious rolls are a regular part of Germany's breakfast menu. Try them warm from the oven, split and served with butter and jam or honey. Often served with boiled eggs.

Thetexture of these rolls is a slightly chewy crumb, and the spraying of water ensures a crunchy crust.

Baker's malt/sugar is available from home brewing sections in larger supermarkets and adds to the texture and colour of the finished product.
