Pull Apart Rolls – Guest Post
Today I share with you a recipe for bread rolls with an unusual ingredient: mayonnaise. It all started out a day where I had some leftover mayo that needed using. And I was making bread.
I started thinking that if you can make cake or cookies using mayo, it should be equally possible to make bread using mayo. So I tried. And the result was good!
The mayo gave the bread rolls a pleasant crunchiness, while not changing the flavor of the bread. It was like a magic had happened. And now I re-baked those rolls and the magic repeated. And now I am sharing the recipe I used with you. Try it and you won’t be disappointed.

Pull Apart Rolls
- 1 lb all purpose flour approx. 4 cups
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tsp activated dry yeast
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp seeds to decorate
- Mix all ingredients together starting with the flour, adding water, yeast, mayo and lastly the salt.
- Knead well until the dough becomes smooth and keeps together. If the dough is too sticky add a couple of spoon of flour, if is too dry add a bit of water. In the end you should have a rather soft dough.
- Put the dough in a large bowl and cover with plastic film, then place in a warm place to proof (I usually put it in the oven with the light on)
- When the dough has doubled (2-6 hours depending on room condition), form it into balls slightly bigger than a golf ball and place in a baking dish to proof until it doubles in size.
- Choose an baking dish that is not too big. (You can use a large pizza pan or two cake pans.)
- The idea is that while raising the bread rolls will fill the whole pan and create a sort of big flower.
- When the rolls have proofed, brush with the lightly beaten egg and decorate with your favorite seeds: sunflower, pumpkin, flax or even paprika or grated cheese.
- Bake at 400F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
