Sweet Bread





Introduction: Sweet Bread

Sweet breads, sweet buns, sweet rolls. Whatever you call them, you can fill them with whatever you like ;)

Step 1: Ingredients and Method

For these sweet breads, I filled them with store bought chestnut puree and also cheddar cheese.

500 g bread flour

100 g sugar

100 g butter/margarine

a pinch of salt

2 tbsp milk powder (either skim or full cream is fine)

1/2 tsp bread improver (optional, available at bakeries or online)

4 yolks

Proof yeast:

200 ml lukewarm water

11 g instant yeast (1 envelope)


100 ml milk

Mix dry ingredients, make a well in center, add in yolks and pour in yeast mixture, stir either with spatula or hands.

Add in margarine, knead. While kneading, add milk a little at a time, only as much as needed.

Cover with cling wrap and let stand for an hour until doubled in size.

Divide dough into balls and start shaping and filling. While working on a dough, cover the rest so they aren't dry.

Once all shaped and filled, let stand for 15 minutes.

Brush breads with an extra yolk diluted in a little milk

Preheat oven to 200 C and bake breads for 8-10 minutes

Step 2: Enjoy~
