Here I am, kneading my dough again :-). Honestly I didn’t know what to prepare for da boys’ breakfast today and came up with these buns. I have been using the recipe for this dough for quite some time and it always turns fluffy and super yummy.
These buns are perfect for breakfast and can be filled either with cheese, slices of sausage or jam.
200 millilitres warm milk
500 g all-purpose flour (more when you form the buns)
1 tablespoon sugar
50 millilitres vegetable oil
1 small package of dry yeast (or 1 1/2 teaspoons)
1 teaspoon salt
Sift the flour In a large bowl and form a well. Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk, then add the sugar and salt and pour into the flour. Lastly, add the oil and with the help of a wooden spoon or spatula start assembling the dough adding flour as necessary. Knead for about 5 minutes. The dough should be formed into an elastic, non-sticky ball. Put in a lightly oiled bowl, cover and let it rise for an hour or until double in size.
Divide the dough into 20-23 (depending on how big you want your buns to be) small balls. Smaller buns do look better in my view. Besides I have a penchant for sitting in front of TV with a plate of bite-sized goodies and entertain myself 🙂
Roll out each ball into a circle, slicing one of its sides. Place a piece of sausage, cheese, or jam on the edge and roll again. See the pictures below for ideas how to form the buns.
Line the buns in a baking pan, cover and let them rise for another 1/2 hour. Just before getting them in the oven brush the top with a mixture of a beaten egg yolk and few drops of water. Bake in a preheated to 220 C oven for about 1/2 hour or until golden-brown.
