PORTUGUESE SWEET BREAD ROLLS


There are so many version of Portuguese Sweet Bread found on the net. Some used a starter but now I had baked them using straight forward method from King Arthur Flour. Originally a bread machine recipe but made slight changes to suit my taste.

This  dough is easy to work with and not so wet. You can easily shape them into a loaf or as a roll. They turned so  fluffy and smell so good while baking. Even my son can't resist to taste them. Incredibly delicious!

PORTUGUESE SWEET BREAD ROLLS
Yield     :     7 rolls

2 and 1/2 C all purpose flour
1 and 1/2 tsp instant yeast
2/3 C  evaporated milk plus 2 TB
2 TB  softened butter
1/4 C  sugar
3/4 tsp salt

METHOD

Warm milk and butter in microwave for 1 minute. Let cool until lukewarm.

Place flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a mixing bowl.

Make a well in the center, pour the milk mixture.

Using your mixer or by hand, combine flour and forms into soft dough.

On floured board, knead the dough by hand for 10 minutes.

Transfer onto greased and covered bowl, let rise until doubled for  2 hours.

Punch dough down, shape into loaf  or rolls and place into greased pan. Let sit for  1 hour.  Towards the end of rising time preheat oven to 175 C.  Brush tops with melted butter.

Bake for 30-35 minutes for loaf and 20-25 minutes for rolls or  until golden brown.

Remove and place on rack to cool.
