Za’atar & Buttermilk Cluster rolls



Good Morning!

The dear son has arrived on summer holidays and it’s a Bakathon (Baking Marathon) of sorts in my kitchen once again. A fussy eater as a child, he is now happy to sample a variety of cuisine, breads and bakes from my kitchen. I had baked up these easy and fool-proof Buttermilk Cluster rolls a couple of days ago.

These work great as an accompaniment with Dinner or can be served by at breakfast as well. I’ve used up some Za’atar that I had around but you could use any other topping of your choice. Sesame, Onion and sunflower seeds do equally well for this recipe.


Za’atar (zaatar) is a mixture of sumac, sesame seed and herbs frequently used in the Middle East and Mediterranean areas.

It is often mixed with olive oil and spread on bread; sometimes this is done at the table, other times the mix is spread on the bread rounds which are then baked. Za’atar also serves as a seasoning to sprinkle on vegetables, salads, meatballs or kebabs.

Trust me these warm rolls out of the oven are quite a show stopper and delicious in every bite.

Go ahead and bake some up today!
