Vienna Rolls Recipe

Hello everyone!! It has been a while I haven’t baked any bread so here another kind of bread. This vienna bread recipe was originated from the name itself- Vienna, Austria back in the 19th Century. Vienna rolls were traditionally prepared with beer yeast and new dough. But I used the normal yeast here which also turned out pretty good. It is also known as Kaiser rolls as it was introduced in Paris by a Vienna baker.  It is shaped in same was as bread rolls.

These Vienna rolls are a bit sweet and are super yummy. I usually eat this as my breakfast and snacks with jam and sometimes with cheese also. As it is a sweet bread, I like them more with cheese and some oregano, thyme. This bread has a hard crust on top and is soft from inside.
