  • Total Time: 24 hrs 55 mins
  • Yield: 12 pieces 1x




  • 80g all-purpose flour
  • 226g water
  • 14g starter


  • 240g all-purpose flour
  • 120g bread flour
  • 1 egg
  • 9g kosher salt
  • 25g sugar
  • 28g vegetable oil


  • 100g breadcrumbs


  1. Mix the sponge ingredients in a bowl, then cover the bowl and set this in a warm place to rest overnight.
  2. Add the all-purpose flour, bread flour, egg, salt, and sugar into a bowl and mix well. Once your mixture has formed a nice dough, knead the vegetable oil into the dough, dropping one tablespoon of oil at a time. Your dough will gradually become softer as you continue to knead. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let this rest for an hour.
  3. Splash your work surface with a little oil, and knead the dough onto it for 10, minutes. Round the dough into a tight ball, and place this into a clean and lightly greased bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in a warm spot to rest.
  4. Let the dough proof until it has doubled in volume.
  5. Place breadcrumbs on a plate. Flatten the dough into a large rectangle and shape it into a baton.
  6. Cut the dough into 12 portions using a bench scraper. Roll each portion of dough into the bread crumbs. Arrange the dough on a small baking sheet, and cut sides up.
  7. Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and let this rise for one hour.
  8. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F, while the dough proofs for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Remove the plastic wrap and bake for 30 minutes.
