For this month’s “We Knead To Bake”, we are baking these cute rolls. I have been baking a ton of breads recently and some of them are baked more often due to different reasons. This is one bread that I have baked three times in this past month and the kids keep requesting for more. The bread is soft and pillowy and I had to delicately remove it from the pan so that I do not squish them. They are that soft .I followed the oven temperature as mentioned in the original recipe the first time and ended up with completely burnt buns . The kids were eagerly waiting for the “shark tooth” bread as they lovingly called it and I made another batch immediately for them. All the rolls were gone in a matter of minutes.
Overall this is a bread that is cute to look and extremely soft that I will be making pretty often. Off to the recipe. Recipe adapted from here.
- milk - 3/4 cup plus more for brushing
- yeast - 1 tsp
- sugar - 1/4 cup plus more for topping
- all purpose flour - 1 2/3 cup
- bread flour - 3/4 cup
- salt - 1/4 tsp
- butter - 4 tbsp - melted
Mix ingredients for bread and knead until you have a soft and elastic dough that is not sticky. Set aside and allow to double in volume.
Divide the dough into 10 pieces and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
Roll each piece into a circle about 4 inches diameter roughly. Roll up the circle from one end, jelly roll style into a cylinder. Pinch the seam and ends and place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Repeat for all pieces and allow to rise again.
After about an hour brush the rolls with milk or egg. Using a sharp scissor make diagonal cuts and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a preheated 375F oven for about 12 - 15 min until the tops are golden brown.
Allow to cool and serve warm.
