Semi-sweet Dessert RollsL'Antro dell'Alchimista
Forget cinnamon rolls — these none-too-cloying yeast dessert rolls get an update with the slightly bitter addition of malt. You can feel free to knead the dough by hand or break out the bread machine if you see fit. Just be sure to allow enough time since the dough needs to rise for a total of about six hours. Then, serve them with a dessert-friendly chocolate stout, if you're wise.
- 250 grams all-purpose flour
- 250 grams strong flour
- 8 grams yeast (brewer’s)
- 3 egg yolks
- 60 grams lard (or vegetable oil)
- 30 grams sugar
- 10 grams salt
- 1 teaspoon malt (or honey)
- 270 milliliters milk
- 1Warm the milk and add the yeast and the malt to be dissolved. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
- 2In the meantime, sift the two types of flour together, place the mixture in a bowl and gradually add the milk to be incorporated. Add the sugar, salt, and egg yolks, one at a time, and the lard.
- 3Knead well by hand, with a mixer, or in the bread machine, and let the dough rise for approximately 40 minutes.
- 4Place the dough in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 4 hours.
- 5Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
- 6Punch down the dough lightly, and without overworking it, cut it into pieces weighing 35 grams each. Shape each piece into a roll, place the rolls on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.
- 7Brush the rolls with beaten egg and let them rise for 1 hour.
- 8Preheat the oven to 180C.
- 9Brush the rolls again with the beaten egg and bake for approximately 25 minutes.
