These little sweet rolls came out today so good, I really need to be removed from kitchen physically because I can't stop eating. I have to workout double just to burn all those calories. However they are truly irresistible. I think my kids will love it once they see this for after school snack! They are warm on the inside, and the chocolate is simply melting along with the roll in your mouth. I mean it is #1 sweet pastry in my household. Try it and you will absolutely love them too!
- 4 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 eggs yolks
- 3 Tbs. sugar
- 1 Tbs. dry yeast + pinch of sugar + 1/4 cup of warm milk
- 1 cups of warm milk *I used this time coconut milk
- 1 Tbs. Butter (unsalted), melted for brushing the buns/rolls
- 1/2 cup of powdered (confectioners’) sugar for the dusting optional*
- Chocolate but varieties are endless-jam, nutella, cheese
- Combine flour and salt.
- Mix eggs and sugar until lightly creamy and add to the flour. (You can use hand whisk as it doesn't have to be perfectly puffed up creamy form)
- Let the yeast get activated by putting together warm milk, yeast and pinch of sugar, once active add it to the flour;
- Add warm milk and knead the dough!
- Sweet dough should be firm, as you form into the ball (it shouldn't be too sticky) and let it raise for about 30 min. Knead the dough one more time and cover for 10 additional minutes.
- Once you see that the dough is ready, take it out of the bowl and spread out on your working area; cut it into squares or circles like you would normally do for doughnuts and put about 1 teaspoon of chocolate(cut it roughly with the knife) in a middle of each dough piece; fold them and as you folding make into a ball.
- Place it on a parchment paper or just grease the baking pan; brush melted butter and let it raise one more time..I would say about 15-20 min.
- Bake it on 350F(180C) for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown.
Once they are baked brush again bit of butter and dust them with powdered sugar.Let it cool down for a few minutes before serving!
I hope everybody is having great day!
Yes dough can be refrigerated. What you need to do after it rises, cover with plastic foil. For me the best way was to put in a plastic container or large bowl and just cover so the air doesn't get in. Take it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before and just let it rise again. I have to tell you honestly that I love to work with a fresh dough but I did refrigerated few times before and it came out beautifully! Hope it will work for you! Thanks again!
