Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: French
Serves: 10
  • 1¼ cups milk, warmed (about 43C/110F)
  • 2 tablespoons instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 3¼ cups to 3½ cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg beaten for the egg wash
  1. In the mixing bowl add the warm milk, the sugar and the yeast. Stir for a few seconds and leave to activate the yeast. If this doesn't happen, you have dud yeast - start over.
  2. Add in the butter and egg and mix to combine.
  3. Switch to a dough hook and add in the flour and the salt and knead for about 6 minutes or until the dough is elastic and smooth.
  4. Place in a greased bowl and leave to rise in a warm place for about 40 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 200C/400F and grease a baking sheet or line with baking paper.
  6. Punch down dough and dump onto a floured surface or silicone mat (won't need flour for that)
  7. Cut the dough into 80 gram/3 ounce pieces and shape into balls and place on the baking sheet. Once all are on the sheet, flatten with your fingers.
  8. Let rise for 30 minutes or so and then brush with the egg wash before placing them into the oven for 20 minutes.
