Hi I think I just need an excuse to bake bread and The group Baking Partners seemed to be the best excuse for me:-). For this month Swathi suggested that we make dinner rolls and the challenge is to try the different shapes to make it more interesting. She gave us two recipes of which one is from King Arthur Flour Website and the substitution which she suggested for potato flakes(As it is unavailable here) is mashed potatoes . Though I was very apprehensive about using potatoes in breads, I must say , the rolls turned out to be very soft with a mild potato flavour INGREDIENTS All purpose flour 3 1/2 cups Instant Yeast 2 tsp Milk 2/3 cup Sugar 2 tbsp Salt 1tsp Soft Butter 4 tbsp Mashed Potato 3/4 cup PREPARATION
Pressure cook the potatoes till soft. Peel it and mash well and keep it asde In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, yeast , salt, mashed potato and butter.Mix well Now add the lukewarm milk and knead it into a soft dough Transfer this dough to a cutting board and knead for around 10 minutes till it forms a very soft pilable dough. Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise for nearly 45 mins so that it doubles in volume Pinch even sized balls from this dough and make Rosette, Lion house rolls and Knot rolls Click on the name for the video demonstrastion Place these apart on a well greased tray. Cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rise again for 45 minutes Preheat the oven to 200C Brush these rolls with milk and bake them for 15-20 MINUTES or till they start to brown on the top Brush the warm buns with melted butter and serve!! Knot Rolls Rossette Lion House Rolls Linking this to Baking PartnerI did try all the rolls but i guess i need to improve in rossette.
These are the softest rolls that I have baked till date Thank you Swathi.
