Clover leaf rolls

Clover leaf rolls


  • 4 t active dry yeast
  • 1 ⁄8c warm water
  • 2 c bread flour
  • 1 c potato starch
  • 1.5 T salt
  • 1 ⁄8 c milk powder
  • 1 ⁄8 c sugar
  • 1 ⁄8 c cold butter cubed
  • 1.5 c cold water
  • 1/4 tsp matcha tea powder


  1. Preheat oven to 375* F

  2. Hydrate yeast with warm water. 

  3.  Combine all dry ingredients in a stand mixer and mix to combine. With mixer running add yeast and water mix until just combined. Add cold water and mix for 7 minutes on low speed. Move from mixing bowl onto lightly floured surface and knead my hand until smooth ball forms. Place in a bowl sprayed with a light coating of oil, cover with plastic wrap and allow too double in size.

  4. To shape divide dough into 2 portions - one bigger and one smaller. Make 12 rolls from the larger dough portion and use the smaller portion to make  12 small flat discs. Cut the discs in clover shape and put them on top of the  bread rolls 

  5.  Place in a muffin pan that has been prepped with some butter and proof  until double in size. 

    When proofed, brush with a little water and sprinkle some matcha tea on top. I also used a paintbrush to paint the matcha tea into the "veins" of the clovers. Bake at 375 until  golden.
