What's for tea today?
Outside is so hot now and seeing the temp hit 33 degrees Celsius is hardly surprising. Usually, I wouldn't attempt to bake anything at time like. It may add another 10 degrees to the kitchen.
But I just made this oh-so-lovely rolls and it was so good I wanted to share...
The rolls are buttery...and just slightly sweetened. It's also so soft and chewy at the same time.
With speckled dried sultanas hinting a fruity bite...
I know it goes perfectly with both coffee and tea...
Tempted? Well then, hit on!
Buttery Sultanas Rolls
Makes 12 rolls
- 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/2 cup hot milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 4 cups all purpose flour
- Handful of sultanas, chopped
- Evaporated milk for brushing
- In a small bowl, combine yeast and warm water . Let sit 5 minutes
- Take another big bowl and combine the hot milk, sugar, butter and salt. Stir until the mixture reach lukewarm temperature
- Add yeast and the egg. Stir to combine, then add 2 cups of flour. Mix thoroughly
- Add the rest of the flour and knead lightly with hand until it balls into a soft dough. Cover with a dish cloth and let rise for 1 hour, until doubled in size
- Punch down the dough, knead a little. Then roll it out on lightly floured surface into a big circle
- Cut into 12 wedges. Take one slice of dough and brush with evaporated milk. Sprinkle with chopped sultanas, and roll it up from the wide side
- Arrange on a greased baking sheet 2 inches apart. Lightly brush tops with evaporated milk before baking in preheated oven 200 C for 15 minutes
- Immediately transfer baked rolls into cloth lined basket. Eat warm with softened butter lathered inside or dunk plain in coffee or tea. Oh yeah... ^__^
