I had baked yeast rolls before but never with yogurt. This is my first experience using them. Well, not much difference with other rolls, they are easy to handle.
These rolls require longer time to rise but nevertheless, they are fantastic and so fluffy! My children devoured them in no time and never fails to get appreciative comments from them. You can shape them according to your likeness either into round or as a loaf.
Yield : 1 Loaf or 2 mini loaf
3 C all purpose flour
2 tsp active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
3/4 C yogurt @ room temperature
1 TB sugar
1/4 C warm water
3 TB melted butter
1 tsp sugar
Dissolve yeast and 1 tsp sugar in warm water and keep aside for 10 minutes or until frothy.
Mix in sugar, butter, yogurt and salt. Stir well. Gradually add this mixture to the flour and forms into soft dough.
Transfer dough onto a floured board and knead by hand or use your stand mixer for 8 minutes until smooth.
Place dough in an oiled and covered bowl for 2 hours or until doubled in size.
Punch down dough and knead for 2 minutes. Shape into a loaf, tuck both side under. place dough onto greased loaf pan and let sit for 45 minutes, cover with towel. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 190 C.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Brush top with melted butter.
Transfer onto rack to cool.
