These rolls are made with sweet bread dough, shape into long rope of 12 in folded into 2 and braided,
After browsing You Tube, I came across a bunch of gorgeous rolls with different braiding techniques. They used no special gadget but simply turning the dough by braiding and twisting. I borrow that idea to shape my Braided Bread Rings.
I was pleasantly surprised to see, how easy to turn your dough into something beautiful by looking at those videos.
For the dough, I used my trusted Braided Masala Bread recipe or use your favorite bread recipe. If sticky, do not be afraid to add a bit more flour.
Sometimes Braided Bread Rings do become a little squished but overall the results are simply stunning.
BRAIDED BREAD RINGS RECIPE
Yield : 9 rolls
220 g bread flour
50 g butter
1.5 tsp instant yeast
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 egg (reserve 1 tablespoon for topping)
1 tablespoon egg
1 tablespoon milk
In a small saucepan, melt the butter, add in milk and remove from heat.
When the milk is warm to touch add in yeast, sugar, salt and an egg. Stir well.
Pour milk mixture onto flour, stir with wooden spoon. Cover and let it rise for one hour.
Punch the dough down, knead for 1 minute until smooth. Cover and let sit for another 30 minutes.
Knead again, divide into 9 equal portions, add more flour if needed. Roll each into a long thick rope about 12 in long, fold into 2. Join the 2 ropes together at one end and start braiding. Tuck in the ends.
