Petit Pains au Lait (Milk Bread / Roll)

Petit Pains au Lait……………Just Relax! Means, Milk Bread / Roll in French.
Though I am not with Milk Bread, I need to bake this for We Knead To Bake #17. Recipe, aadopted from Gourmetkat.  

Whenever I bake a bread recipe, I feel good because, the aroma of the bread and following day breakfast task accomplishes up to my son’s expectation.

Here, I tried to give thorny like texture. I am extremely happy with the outcome.

Okay, here the Ingredients list : 1/3 cup Warm Milk     ;    ½ tsp  Instant Yeast    ;    1/8 cup Sugar     ;    1 cup  of All-purpose flour     ;    ½ cup Bread flour       ;  A  pinch  of salt  ;  30 gms of Butter (soft @ Room Temp.)    ;    Extra milk for brushing   ;  little sugar for topping.

Bread Making Procedure :   Mix the warm milk, Yeast and Sugar in the bowl and add all the flour and the salt and blend until it looks crumbly. Add the butter and knead until you have a soft, smooth and elastic dough that’s not sticky.

Add a little more milk, in teaspoonful at a time. (Because It’s a Milk Bread !!) if your dough is dry, until you have the required consistency of dough.

Shape the dough into a ball and place it in an oiled bowl, turning it over to coat with oil. Cover loosely and set aside to rise until double in volume. This should take about 60 – 90 min.

Deflate the dough gently, and divide it into five equal parts. Let them rest for 15 minutes.

Roll out each piece of dough, (one at a time) into a circle about 4” in diameter. Slowly roll up the circle from one end, into a cylinder. Pinch the seam closed neatly and place them on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet with the seam side facing down. Cover loosely and let them rise for an hour or so till almost double in size.

Brush them lightly with milk and using a pair of sharp scissors, make diagonal cuts (not too deep) on the top of the rolls. Sprinkle sugar.

Bake them at 200°C (400°F) for about 15 minutes or so until they’re golden brown. Let them cool on a rack. Serve them warm or at room temperature with coffee or chilled flavored milk:  Perfect for a Breakfast.
