bread rolls

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

bread rolls

Delia's Recipe says 50% wholemeal flour and 50% strong white flour.
Can somebody tell me why the mix of flours.
thanks

white/brown bread rolls

You can make them all white or all brown but it's easier for beginners to lighten the wholewheat flour with a proportion of white. With practice you can make them with lots of different flours.
BTW for a soft crust put some butter or other fat on a paper towel and wrap them up when they come out of the oven, then in a tea towel and leave for a bit.

Flour type

But when Delia says wholemeal flour for the rolls, what type does she mean? Should it be strong wholemeal bread flour? Should it always be "bread flour" if making bread? I never know which sort of flour to use.

flour/s for bread

"But when Delia says wholemeal flour for the rolls, what type does she mean? Should it be strong wholemeal bread flour? Should it always be "bread flour" if making bread? I never know which sort of flour to use."
Somebody told me once that she always adds a smallish proportion of regular (ie not strong) flour when making bread, in addition to the strong flour. I've tried this and it can't do any harm. Normally, D would mean strong bread flour. I make loads of different kinds of breads with different flours and they all work.
