dinner rolls/milk bread recipe/bun/soft &chewy — Cooking A Dream
This dinner roll is very very fluffy, soft and chewy.If you follow the recipe you will not be disappointed.This is a recipe for dinner rolls or some may call milk bun or milk bread. It’s a basic dinner rolls recipe, many other kinds of bread items can be made out of this bread which I will be showing in my other videos.
Ingredients for 8 pieces of bread:
Bread flour 250g( 2 cups-poured in the cup)I recommend measuring in gram by scale.
water or milk 107g(110-120ml)(1/2 cup)(could be 2tbsp more or less depending on the size of the egg and the humidity of flour or how much butter you use)make a very soft dough.
milk powder 4 tbsp(25g)
large egg 1(51g)
yeast 1tsp (make sure good quality)
sugar 3 tbsp(37g)
salt 3/4 tsp
butter 3 tbsp(42g) or 4tbsp
(I made 9 pieces of bread)
bake 15 to 20 mins at 175°C(350°F)(depending on your oven type)
(25mins if you feel it’s under baked, under baked bread will feel dough like texture and smells more yeasty)
*make sure your yeast is good quality, raises perfectly, not half dead.
1.If your dough feels too wet to handle after kneading you can add 2-3 tbsp flour as needed but don’t use too much otherwise the bread will become dense.oil your hand if it sticks.the dough supposed to be very soft.
2.scale measurement is more accurate.cup measurement could be little different for various reasons.But if you measure by cups flour and water ratio may not be exact sometimes. in that case, you can add some flour if the dough is too wet to handle.(make a soft dough possible.)
proper kneading and folding are important for the chewy texture of bread.
3.dough will be sticky and soft at the beginning. A soft dough makes soft bread. After 15 mins of kneading, it will not stick to your hand anymore.
4.Ovens has different temperature.If you find the color of the bread going dark before time, place an aluminum foil on top of the bread soon after you get your desired color.
5. use a minimum amount of flour dusting possible. dusting can make hard texture.you can also use oil instead of flour to prevent sticking.
6. I recommend bread flour. if you can’t find it you can use plain all purpose flour but knead longer.but the chewiness may not be the same.
7.I use instant yeast.water temperature should be like body temperature if you dip your finger in water for 30 sec and you don’t feel uncomfortable or irritation but you feel the warmth that is perfect. yeast dies in hot water. I sometimes even use room temperature water which also works fine.If you have Thermometer it should be between 35°c to 40°C.
8.It’s good to have a warm place for proofing bread dough, in winter dough will not rise on counter top.I turn the oven on for a few seconds then turn off and put the tray in, I feel the temperature inside the oven by putting my hand in to make sure it’s warm, not hot.I do it every 15 mins to keep the dough warm. normally it takes between 30mins to 1hour to rise.Or you can just turn the oven light on if you have the option.
