There is a way to impress your significant other/in-laws/friends/potential home buyers/neighborhood kids/their parents and it is to make rolls. That smell amazing. That are super simple food. That make you look cool. Or whatever you want to put there.
Also admit, how many people around you make their own bread or rolls? It’s just cool thing to say.
SO without farther delay, here it is!
- 3 1/2 cup flour
- 1 cup milk (warm, but not too warm)
- 3/4 oz active yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- *grains (optional, to put on the rolls)
Separate around 1/4 cup of warm milk, add sugar and yeast. Mix it and put in the warm spot for the yeast to grow. In the meantime put flour and salt in separate bowl. When yeast grows, add this, and the rest of warm milk to dry ingredients. Mix the dough until you have a nice, solid ball.
Leave the dough in a warm spot for around an hour. You can cover it with kitchen cloth so it’s warmer. Take the dough from the bowl and form small balls that will be your rolls. Put them on the pan you will be using for baking and remember to leave around 2 inches between each. Then set aside in a warm spot again for another 30 minutes.
While waiting break the egg and stir it. Put it on top of the rolls and add some grains, sesame or poppy seeds if you want. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Bake the rolls around 20 minutes or until the start getting nice brown color on top.
You can eat them right from the oven. Seriously, just add butter and they are awesome. And your house smells awesome. And everyone around is more than happy. Also warning – they disappear in 10 minutes. This portion makes around 10 and they were gone super fast.
You will love it! I swear!
