Wool Roll Bread

This soft fluffy bread bundt is definitely considered to be a special type of bread since it resembles a roll of wool!


  • 3 tbsp white sugar

  • 1 1/2 tsp of yeast

  • 1 egg (1 for making dough)

  • 1 egg + 2 tbsp milk (1 to brush the dough before baking)

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1 cup milk

  • 3/4 cup luke warm water

  • 4 cups of flour

  • 90 grams of butter (at room temperature)

Optional fillings:

  • Cheese

  • Zaatar

  • Jam

  • Chocolate


For the dough:

  1. In a stand mixer, add in the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, egg, water and milk.

  2. Mix the ingredients together for about 5 minutes to form a dough.

  3. Add in the softened butter and knead for another 5 minutes.

  4. Cover the bowl with a damp towel (or plastic wrap) and allow the dough to rest for 40 minutes.

For Shaping

  1. Once the dough has rested, divide it either into 6 equal dough balls (for 2 smaller bundts) or 3 larger dough balls (for a larger bundt).

  2. Cover the dough balls whilst shaping to prevent them from drying out.

  3. Place one of your dough balls onto a floured surface.

  4. Roll out the dough into a rough rectangle shape.

  5. At this stage, you can fill your dough with a few teaspoons of any choice of filling or you can just make a simple plain roll of bread.

  6. Tuck in the filling and pinch the dough to prevent the filling from leaking out.

  7. Fold in the edges and roll 1/2 the way to the other end of the rectangle.

  8. Cut thin strands of the dough using a bench scraper or a knife, then continue rolling.

  9. Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.


  1. Transfer your rolls in a round baking pan or in a bundt cake pan lightly greased with some vegetable oil.

  2. Place the rolls around the inside of the pan to form a ring and make sure to leave a spaces between each roll as they will double in size.

  3. Cover the pan and allow the rolls to rest for another 40 minutes.

  4. While the rolls are proofing, preheat your oven at 180 degrees celsius.

  5. After the rolls have rested, gently brush the rolls with the egg wash (simply whisk the egg with a tablespoon of milk)

  6. Bake the rolls at 180 degrees celsius, middle rack for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.

  7. Let the bread cool down for a few minutes before removing from the pan and serve warm.

  8. Bon Appétit!
