Picture this: a serene evening, the table is set, and at its heart is a basket filled with golden rolls, emitting a sweet aroma of honey and butter. Introducing the Honey-Butter Bliss Milk Dinner Rolls, a delicacy that promises the softest, fluffiest, and most flavorful experience. These rolls have a texture so delicate that they spring back to their original form when pressed. The magic lies in the fusion of honey and butter, making every bite an orchestra of flavors.
- 200 ml milk (a little over 3/4 cup) – the liquid magic
- 10 gr (1 tbsp) instant yeast – the rising star
- 50 gr (3 1/3 tbsp) sugar, out of which 10 gr or 2/3 tbsp will be used for the yeast bloom
- 7 gr (1 1/3 tsp) salt – a hint to balance
- 1 large egg – binding and richness
- 400 gr (2 3/4 cups) bread flour – the canvas of our rolls
- 4 tbsp (1/2 stick) butter – a touch of opulence
- 2 tbsp honey – nature’s nectar
Begin with milk’s warmth: heat the 200 ml milk for about 30-40 seconds in a microwave. In this lukewarm embrace, add 10 grams of sugar, ensuring it dissolves completely. Introduce the yeast, give it a gentle stir, cover, and let it bloom for around 5 minutes.
As the yeast dances and froths, melt the butter in a separate bowl. To this liquid gold, add honey, salt, the remaining sugar, and an egg. Blend well, ensuring a harmonious mix.
In the majestic arena of a mixing bowl, lay down the bread flour. Gently pour in the milk-yeast potion and the butter-honey mixture.
With the grace of a maestro, set your mixer to a gentle stir for a minute. Gradually increase the tempo to a moderate speed, letting the ingredients waltz for about 10-12 minutes.
As they dance, prepare a container with a light greasing. Shape the dough into a ball and let it rest, doubling or even tripling in size, in a slightly warm oven for about 1 to 1.5 hours.
Once risen like the morning sun, bring out the dough. Deflate gently and divide into 12 even balls. Position them in a greased baking pan, and let them rise once more in the oven, ensuring they fill their stage.
The final act: bake these budding stars in a preheated oven at 350°F for 15-17 minutes. Their golden hue will be a sight to behold.
For an encore, brush them with melted butter right out of the oven, sealing in their exquisite aroma and flavor.
There you have it, the Honey-Butter Bliss Milk Dinner Rolls, a testament to the timeless love affair between honey, butter, and bread. Ideal for any gathering or a quiet evening meal, these rolls promise to be the highlight of your dining table.
