‘Empty Tomb’ Rolls
“18 “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death 19 and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!” Matthew 20:18-19
We had Resurrection rolls for breakfast and i was thinking what I can do to make rolls which symbolizes the empty tomb and fit for dinner.Since I couldn’t find what I was looking for,I had to get creative here.I resorted the time tasted Golden Rolls Recipe.These are not the ‘Empty’ Tomb rolls.So I thought what if I bake it after making hole and make sure that hole doesn’t close as it bakes.I thought it is worth a try.This is what I did to convert this Golden rolls to ‘Empty Tomb Rolls’.
- I got craft sticks and aluminium foil.
- I stacked 5 sticks together in a bundle and covered it with foil.I didn’t do this part,my 5 yr old daughter did after i showed her of course.
- Right before rolls were ready to go in oven,I added each one of these foiled cover craft sticks in the middle of the rolls,all the way and baked away.
- If I had marbles ,i would have tried to wrap the foil around it and put it inside each roll and then set it out for second rise.Take it out once it baked.May be next time.
I wasn’t sure how these ‘props’ would affect the baking process of each bun.I was concerned that as the rolls bakes,it will try to shift and push the stick around but I took the chance anyway with plan B in place,if I ruined it.So i laid it our slant.It also deflated the rolls as i stuck them inside the rolls.It affected the rise. It was not fluffy rolls of goodness as it looks in the KAF picture.Far from it but it was pleasantly good .I was glad I gave it a try,may be by next time around,i will have it perfected.
