Poppy Seed Rolls

Healthycooking's picture
  Skimmed milk 1⁄2 Pint (300 milliliter / 1 1/4 cup, warm)
  Dried yeast 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Pinch
  Strong white flour 1 Pound (450 gram / 4 cups)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Egg 1 , lightly beaten
For topping
  Egg 1 , beaten
  Poppy seeds 1 Tablespoon

1. Put half the warm milk in a small bowl. Sprinkle the yeast on top. Add the sugar, mix well and leave for 30 minutes.
2. Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the yeast mixture and the egg. Gradually incorporate the flour, adding enough of the remaining milk to mix to a soft dough.
3. Turn the dough on to a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until smooth and elastic. Return to the clean bowl, cover with a damp dish towel and leave in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour until doubled in bulk.
4. Lightly grease two baking sheers. Turn the dough on to a floured surface. Knead for 2 minutes, then cut into 12 pieces and shape into rolls.
5. Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheets, cover loosely with a large plastic bag (ballooning it to trap the air inside) and leave to stand in a warm place until the rolls have risen well. Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/ Gas 7.
6. Glaze the rolls with beaten egg, sprinkle with poppy seeds and bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
