A milk bread with a bar of chocolate or jam has always been a favorite snack for children on the way to school or at home. I invite you to discover this milk bread recipe for children … and adults !
- 500 g all-purpose flour
- 60 g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 15 g fresh yeast
- 10 g salt
- 20 cl milk
- 100 g butter
- Pour the flour into a whisk tank, then add the sugar and the salt. Also, add the baking powder but it must not touch the sugar or the salt.
- Break the eggs then add the milk.
- Using a hook, start mixing everything together then knead the dough for 10 minutes or so.
- We always knead at low speed to ensure that the dough doesn’t get hot.
- During the kneading, feel free to remove the dough glued on the hook from time to time to obtain a smooth dough.
- After the 10 minutes have passed, add the softened butter, then continue the kneading until the butter is completely blended. We have to obtain a smooth and flexible dough.
- Lower the dough and scrub the edges of the whisk tank during the kneading.
- At the end of the kneading, dust the dough with flour to remove it from the tank, then put it on your working area.
- Make a nice dough ball by folding up the edges into the center. Cover it with a dish towel and leave it to rest for 1 hour at room temperature .
- One hour later, fold up again the dough to release the carbon dioxide made by the baking powder. Make a nice dough ball and leave it to rest in the refrigerator for 1 h.
- Cut the dough into small pieces (approximately 70 g each) and leave them to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
- To shape the milk breads, with each of them, make a ball and roll it up with your palm. The milk bread has to be approximately 12 cm long.
- Place each milk bread on a baking tray covered with a baking sheet.
- You can also make a ball for all of them, then roll them up one by one.
- Humidify each milk bread with a paint brush and a bit of water, then let them rise at room temperature for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
- Glaze each milk bread with some beaten egg and a paint brush. Bake them for 15 min or so in a 210°C oven within which we place a cup of water to make some mist.
- Remove the milk breads from the oven and place them on a metal grid to let them cooling down.
