swirl bread rolls

Bread rolls or buns are staple food in many countries.Usually they vary in size shape and texture.A roll can be eaten just like that or with any dip.When I first sign up for shaped breads,thought it will be difficult to shape a bread. I tried very few breads using yeast.Thought to give a try for shaped breads..Today am presenting very simple easy swirl breads.These are excellent in taste and a very easy procedure.They tasted exactly similar to croissant.  Adapted this recipe from youtube. Posting this recipe in BM#64 under the theme "shaped breads".


  • cold milk 1/2 cup
  •  Unsalted butter 3 tbspns
  • sugar 2 tbspns
  • salt 1/4 tspn
  • Active dry yeast 2 tspns
  • All purpose flour 1 1/2 cups( plus 1/4 cup)
  • 1 Egg 

  • Heat butter in a large heavy pot until it melts.After 1 or 2 mins,turn off the heat.
  • Now add milk ,sugar and salt.Mix it well until the mixture is well dissolved.
  • Crack egg ,mix it well.check the temperature when it is luke warm add yeast.Let it sit for 2 mins.
  • Slowly add 1 1/2 cup flour and mix it well with spatula for about 1 min.Now the dough will be very sticky.
  • Cover the pot with lid and let it rise for an hour or until it just doubles.
  • After an hr knead the dough by hand for 2 to 3 mins and cover with lid again.Again let it rise for 30 mins.
  • After  1 1/2 hrs place the dough on kneading surface and sprinkle some flour.Dust the dough with remaining flour until it is just firm to handle.
  • Take a small amount of dough between your palms and roll into cylinder.Roll with both hands until its about 8 inch in length.Coil it around itself and bring the end from the bottom up and cover to the top of the coil it around itself and bring the end from the bottom up and over to the top of the coil so you can insert it into the center.
  • Dust the surface and fingers with lot of flour as the dough will be more sticky. Arrange slowly in the baking pan greased with oil.( I used aluminium foil at the bottom of the pan)
  • Repeat the shapes with remaining bread dough.Let it rise one more hr.
  • Preheat oven 375F for 5 mins.Gently brush the rolls with egg white. and bake for 15 to 20 mins or until golden brown.
  • Remove it from the oven and serve hot.
