Simple buns using an enriched dough and some (two) spices.
- 500 g flour
- 9 g cinnamon, some ground pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 50g butter
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 egg
- 250 g milk
- 20 g yeast
1. Add flour, spices and sugar in a bowl and mix. Make a well in the mixture, add most of the lukewarm milk and the egg. Crumble the yeast in the milk. Start to mix incorporating the flour. Add remaining milk and mix all to a sticky dough. Turn out on work surface and knead for 3-5 minutes to a smooth dough.
Return to bowl and leave to rise for 1 hour.
2. Turn out the risen dough (doubled).
Use about 50g for each roll. Put the dough ball on the work surface, cup your hand over it, gently rotate your hand so the dough is rolled around and formed into a smooth little ball. Arrange on a greased baking tray well spaced apart (18 rolls).
Leave to rise for 45 to 60 minutes.
3. Bake in a preheated oven at 220 C for about 22 minutes. You could glaze the rolls with an egg-milk mixture.
Leave to cool on a wire rack.
