Homemade Dinner Rolls

Dinner rolls are one of the easiest and most delicious breads to make

  • ½ pounds, ⅞ ounces, weight Bread Flour
  • ¼ ounces, weight Yeast
  • 1 ounces, weight Sugar
  • ⅓ ounces, weight Milk Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt To Taste
  • 8 tablespoons, 1 teaspoon, 5-⅞ pinches Water
  • 1 whole Beaten Egg, Divided
  • 1 ounces, weight Butter

Preparation Instructions

In a mixing bowl combine flour, yeast, sugar, milk powder and salt. Mix 1 minute. Next add water and half of the beaten egg. Mix. Add butter. Knead by hand until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
Cover the dough and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. After that, punch the dough down and make 10 round balls and allow to rise for 10 minutes .
Now take out each ball and roll out with a rolling pin until you get a thin disk (4-inch diameter and 1/8-inch thick). Roll up loosely, then coil so that it resembles a snail shell. Keep it a bit loose, as the dough with rise further. Tuck the outer end underneath.
Place on a greased baking tray and allow to rise for 35 minutes. Brush the remaining beaten egg over the dinner roll.
Bake at 200C for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve hot with butter or jam.
