Milk Bread Buns are easy to make

I prefer to make my milk bread buns dough using my electric stand-mixer, but you can, of course, do everything by hand.

First in the bowl of a mixer, using a dough hook, mix on low speed lukewarm water, milk, yeast, oil, malt and 3/4 flour.

Then, add salt and remaining flour a little at a time. Continue kneading on low speed for about 10 minutes until a soft ball of dough forms and clears the sides of the bowl.

Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover it properly (1) and place somewhere warm for about 2 hours for the dough to rise and double in size (2). Here it is. Spectacular!

When the dough has doubled in size, divide it into small balls of about 50 g (3). Put the balls on a baking tray covered with parchment paper and let rise 1 hour (4).

Brush with some milk and then bake in pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
