Soft & cheesy

It’s summertime ¬†and happy days are here again. This is the best time to have fun in the beach . Time to go out, play outdoors and do everything that can be done under the sun. ¬†Yes, I’ve been away from the house this past weeks so I did not have the chance to bake or cook something to share ¬†here. ¬†I just want to enjoy the sunny days as it won’t last. But yesterday was not a good day so I decided to try this recipe that I have been eyeing for a while now. ¬†This kind of ¬†bread reminds me back home and bring back some memories during my younger years. I used to buy this kind of bread in our local bakery. We call it cheese bread. I can recall the creaminess of the cheese inside the bread and that’s one I wanted to achieve in making this¬†Cheese Rolls¬†and it didn’t fail me. I am very happy as the bread came out soft,creamy and cheesy.¬†cheese rolls

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 tablespoon yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1/3 cup lukewarm water

For the dough
2 eggs
4 egg yolks
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup melted butter
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt

softened butter for greasing and spreading
500 grams Cheddar cheese, sliced into 40 sticks
sugar for sprinkling

 

PROCEDURE:

1  In a small bowl, combine yeast, sugar, and lukewarm water. Let stand for 5 minutes to let bubbles form on top.

2  In a large bowl, mix together eggs, yolks, water, and butter. Pour in the yeast mixture and mix.

3  In another large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, powdered milk, and salt. Pour in the liquid mixture; mix. (Dough will be quite sticky.)

4  Grease your work area with butter. Knead the dough until smooth. (To check for the right consistency, dough should be easily stretched into a thin film without breaking.)

5  Form dough into a ball and place in a greased bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let dough rise at room temperature until it doubles in size, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

6  Remove plastic and punch down dough to release air.

7  Form dough into a log and divide equally into 40 (50-gram) pieces.

8  Using a rolling pin, flatten each piece; spread with softened butter.

9  Place a cheese stick in the center of each piece; roll. Pinch ends to seal.

10¬† Arrange rolls on a¬†greased baking sheet¬†and¬†proof until they double in size. Bake at 325¬ļF for 15 minutes.

11  Brush cheese rolls with butter and sprinkle with sugar.

 

Time- and energy-saving tip  Make it effortless! In Step 4, you can also use an electric mixer with the dough hook attachment to mix and knead the dough. To get a darker crust, brush top with milk before baking.
