These yeasted milk rolls are fluffy and flavourful. They don’t require a lot of kneading, but just some time to rise. They’re perfect as dinner rolls, as burger buns or just spread with butter and a sprinkling of sea salt.
Scald the milk by bringing it just to the boil in a saucepan and then removing it from the heat. Pour the hot milk into a large bowl and add the cold water. Leave it to cool to warm, then stir in the yeast and leave for 5 minutes.
Add the flour, melted butter, sugar and salt to the bowl. Stir to bring it together, then knead it in the bowl for two minutes.
Cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave to rise for 1 hour, kneading for 1 minute twice during the rising time.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Shape the dough into small equal-sized balls and place slightly apart on the prepared tray. Leave to rise for 40 minutes.
Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F
Dust the tops of the dough lightly with flour, then bake for 20 minutes or until risen and golden.
