2. Below is the Recipe for shaped bread rolls

Bread rolls or dinner rolls can be made looking this way, when they are placed far apart, or stuck together in a bunch when placed closely, side by side on the baking tray. I just brought this out of the oven, but, as I type, there is nothing left for me as the tray is cleared without even waiting for me to serve properly. I'll have to bake another batch right away. The good thing about this simple recipe is that you don't need to mess up any of your kitchen equipment like mixer or food processor etc, just your pot on the stove and that's all. Even if you have never baked before, let this be your first attempt as it's really as easy as ABC. These bread rolls can be baked without an oven.


How to make bread rolls with shapes

INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons baking margarine (About 60 grams). Using butter is much better and a healthier option.
½ cup liquid milk
2 tablespoons sugar
A pinch of salt
1 large egg
2 teaspoons dry yeast
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 egg white
These ingredients produced 8 dinner rolls:

For The doubled recipe (Multiplied by 2 to give about 18 rolls)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup liquid milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 (half) teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 egg whites


For the tripled recipe (Multiplied by 3 to produce about 27 rolls)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 4 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 egg whites

Baking Directions:

1. Heat the butter in a pot. Turn off the heat.
2. Add the milk, sugar, and salt. Mix well with a wooden spoon until

thoroughly dissolved.
3. Crack the egg, add to the mixture and mix well. Add the dry yeast and leave it for 1 to 2 minutes.
5. Add the flour and mix well with a wooden spoon for about say 1 minute. The dough will be very sticky but don't worry about it.
6. Cover the pot and let dough rise for 1 hour until it doubles in size.
7. Deflate and knead the dough by hand for 1 to 3 minutes then cover again. Let it rise for 30 more minutes.
8. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 parts.
9. Rub a piece of dough between your hands like when you wash hands under a tap, just rub like that until it forms into a cylinder. If it's sticky, you can dust your hands with some flour. When it's long enough, about 6 to 8 inch, wrap around your fingers as shown in the pictures below, bring the end on your right hand back out through the (Middle) opening created by your fingers, then place on a lightly greased baking try. You may instead line your baking tray with baking paper or foil like me.
10. Leave to rise for another 1 hour
11. Brush with the egg white, bake in a pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. NOTE: 350 degrees oven, heat for five minutes before tossing in the tray, but if your oven doesn't have those readings, just pre heat for about 5 to 8 minutes and put in your tray) After baking for 15 mins, bring out of the oven, brush AGAIN with egg egg and bake for just 1 minute, BOOM your bread rolls are ready
12. Serve hot!


TIPS: 


  • If you like your rolls to look this glossy and shiny, pass the egg white through a sieve before brushing on the rolls.
  • If you want your rolls to stick together like a flower, place them close together on the baking tray.
