Course: Appetizer
Keyword: Appetizer, Food, Recipe, Side Dish


  • 3/4 C warm water
  • 1/4 C molasses
  • 1 1/8 C all purpose flour
  • 3/8 C wheat flour
  • 1/2 TBS cocoa
  • 1/2 TBS sugar
  • 1 tsp instant coffee
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/8 tsp yeast 1/2 packet
  • 1/2 TBS oil
  • egg white optional
  • oats optional


  • Dissolve the coffee in the water.
  • Add yeast and let bubble.
  • Add sugar, cocoa, salt, and oil.
  • Add half the flour and the molasses and knead.
  • Continue adding flour until dough pulls away from the bowl. You want it sticky but manageable. The stickier the softer the dough will be.
  • Allow dough to rise until it doubles in size.
  • Shape into rolls or loaf.
  • Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with oats
  • Allow to rise.
  • Bake at 350 F 20-35 minutes (time varies depending on the size of the roll/loaf). To tell if it’s done pick it up and thump the underside it will sound hollow when it’s finished.


vegan option: I make this vegan by using Ener-G instead of the egg white
