Baking IS Hot!

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
  1. In a small bowl, combine yeast and warm water . Let sit 5 minutes
  2. Take another big bowl and combine the hot milk, sugar, butter and salt. Stir until the mixture reach lukewarm temperature
  3. Add yeast and the egg. Stir to combine, then add 2 cups of flour. Mix thoroughly
  4. 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
  5. Punch down the dough, knead a little. Then roll it out on lightly floured surface into a big circle
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Immediately transfer baked rolls into cloth lined basket. Eat warm with softened butter lathered inside or dunk plain in coffee or tea. Oh yeah... ^__^ 

Another for yeastspotting!
