These fantail rolls look stylish and are so versatile that they can be good as a simple snack, for a weekend breakfast or even for gourmet dinner party. With the addition of buttermilk this bread is soft , you'll never stop munching this....
As usual this bread is also a recipe adapted from my book, The Bread.
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes+ rising time 1 hour + 30 minutes
Makes 9 rolls
White Bread Flour- 375 g / 13 oz
Butter- 65 g / 2 1/2 oz / 5 tbsp
Buttermilk- 75 ml / 5 tbsp at room temperature
Milk- 75 ml / 5 tbsp
Caster Sugar- 2 tsp
Dried yeast- 3/ 4 tsp
Salt- 1 tsp
Cinnamon powder - 1 tsp
1 egg lightly beaten
Sift the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the yeast and sugar, mix it up. Heat the 3 tbsp of butter and milk in a pan until the butter is completely melted. Allow it cool down lukewarm.
Make a well in the center of flour mixture, add the buttermilk, egg and melted butter and milk. Knead the dough using a dough tool or hand until you get a smooth and elastic dough.
Place the dough in a clean and oiled bowl, cover with a cling film. Allow it to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
Turn the dough to a floured work surface , knock the air and knead it until smooth and elastic. Roll it out into a rectangle of 45* 30 cm and 1/4 inch thickness.
Melt the remaining butter and brush it on top of the dough, sprinkle with cinnamon powder.. Cut the dough into 5 equal strips lengthways. Stack the strips on top each other and cut it into 9 equal 5 cm strips.
Grease a muffin tray.
Pinch one side of the layered strip together and then place the pinched side down in the muffin tray. Repeat with the remaining strips. Cover the tray with a lightly oiled cling film and allow it to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200 degree Celsius. bake it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until golden.
Turn it out to a wire rack to cool, dust it with icing sugar.
