This time I tried slightly different method for baking this roll. What I did was heating the milk, butter and sugar in a microwave oven just until warm, not piping hot for 15 seconds, stir then continue another 15 seconds to complete the process. Then added the milk mixture together with the yeast to the flour and form into a dough.
The result of this experiment is softer bread and really love this recipe. It is so easy to handle and shaping is a brisk, even roll out the dough without dusting with the flour. If you want, you can stuff them with your favorite filling or leave them plain. Either way they are great for your breakfast or teatime snack.
