From the time I started making homemade bread
, store bought bread has lost its appeal. When I mix my own dough, let it rise and bake, I am totally sure of what I’m getting. I can also add whatever I like
to my dough. Homemade bread is exciting and these fluffy dinner rolls are no exception.
I make them almost the same way I make Coconut Rolls
. However, these ones have no filling. They really need no filling. These babies set my soul on fayaa
and it’s not just a flame. It’s burning…
These rolls are unbelievably easy to make. Let me put you through.
DINNER ROLLS RECIPE
Prep time: 1 hour 30 mins
Cook time: 20 minutes
Total: 1 hour 50 minutes
Yield: 2 rolls
3 1/2 – 4 cups of flour
1 sachet of yeast (or 2 and a quarter teaspoons)
1/3 cup of sugar
1 cup slightly warm milk
1/3 cup of butter (or margarine)
1 teaspoon of salt
3 egg yolks
1 egg for egg wash
2 tablespoons of sesame seeds (optional)
Put milk and butter together in a pot and warm on medium heat for just enough time to let the butter melt.
Transfer the WARM mixture to a bowl and add the yeast. Let it sit for five minutes so the yeast can activate.
Next add in the eggs, sugar and salt and mix together properly. Then add in the flour gradually while mixing until it forms a nice stretchy dough. Note: Your dough should not be too hard. If it is too hard, your bread will be hard.
Now knead your dough on your working surface. I love this part! Play with it for few minutes if you like. Oil a bowl and place the dough inside.
Cover with a plastic wrap and let it sit in a WARM place for about one hour or until the dough has doubled in size. I normally turn on my oven for a little bit then I turn it off and place the dough inside. It works great every single time.
After about an hour, the dough must have doubled in size.
Place it on your working surface.
Punch it in order to remove air from it.
Now cut the dough into 12 equal pieces.
Take each piece and form a ball and place on a greased baking tray.
Repeat process with the rest of the dough.
Again, let it sit in a warm place for about 20 minutes. After that, it must have risen some more.
Brush with egg wash and sprinkle on some sesame seeds if using.
Bake in an oven at 350 Degrees Farenheit or until bread is golden brown. It doesn’t have to be as dark as mine.
Enjoy with a cuppa tea if you like.
