Petit pains au lait and winner of the giveaway ,....

I tried Petit pains au lait better known as Classic French Round Milk Rolls from my Baking book,as i am new into baking ,remeber my first cake :-),i was quiet skeptical about the outcome,still i didnt give up,i followed the instructions properly given in the book,without looking for tips on the net :-(,..anyways today before publishing i thought of doing search on net and saw so many links which could have helped me,..ya guys i am feeling sorry for myself,

link for recipe click here

if u guys have tried this recipe or know any tips do let me know

ingredient for Petit Pains Au Lait

Four cup all purpose flour

salt half tsp

sugar one tablespoon

half cup butter softened

half ounce fresh yeast

one cup warm milk


Dissolve yeast in four tbs of milk and keep aside.

Sift the flour and salt together in a large bowl,stir in sugar followed by softened butter in the flour.

Mix the yeast mixture followed by the rest of the milk and knead to soft dough,till it is smooth and elastic.

Keep in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with lightly oiled plastic wrap and keep in warm place for an hr or more till the dough rises to its double

after an hour divide the dough into 12 equal parts ,shape into ball shape and keep on greased baking sheet

Using a sharp knife cut a cross on top of each roll,cover with lightly oiled plasti wrap and let it rise in warm place for 20 mins till it doubles in size

Preheat theoven to 400 degree fahrenheit ,brush the rolls with milk and bake for 20 -25 mins till golden

transfer to rack,cool and serve with tea or cofee,

I dont know how successful i was in Baking but taste wise these milk rolls were good ,soft and sweet from inside :-)

Glad A is doing well. May be he should stay home for little while longer, preschools are notorious for catching flu and other viruses, spreads quickly too with little kids.

I loved Madhu's Heart marshmallows too, good for her! :)

Baking bread is always a joy. I made rolls, still in the draft. Your's looks good too, great for dipping in coffee in the morning! YUM!
