Kaiser (or, in German” Kaisersemmel,” or “Kaiserbrötchen:) is a small, round loaf characterized by 5 radiant grooves on top.
The crispy crust, wonderful aroma and elastic structure of the dough make this roll almost perfect for wonderful sandwiches and an excellent base for hamburgers.
The baking method and the characteristic shape of the Kaiser rolls were developed by Viennese bakers. It is believed that the roll was named after Emperor Franz Joseph, who abolished state regulation of prices for pastries and made this product cheaper. This is where the roll gets its name: “kaiser” means “emperor” in German.
These rolls have been served at the imperial court since the XVIII century, and since then have not changed their recognizable worldwide shape in the form of a flower or a royal crown.
White hard rolls that are round-shaped.
