Milky Bread Swirls

Bread success! Soft on the inside, just a little bit crunchy on the outside – amazing sandwich base! And super easy, if that matters? πŸ˜€


500 g flour
50 g butter
200 ml water
100 ml milk
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 pack instant yeast
1 egg

+1 egg for brushing

Little snails before the egg-brush:

Little snails after receiving the egg-brush:


A. Mix the water, sugar and yeast. Wait for the yeast to rise (around 15-20 minutes should do)
B. Mix the soft butter, egg and salt
C. Mix A. and B., add the flour and milk, and bring it together to form a nice smooth dough
D. Let the dough rise in a warm place (1/2-1h, depending on time at hand:))
E. Flat out the dough to a square (around 2-3cm or 1 inch thick), cut strings (4-5cm or around 2 inches thick), roll them up as a snail and place them on their side on a baking sheet lined baking tray (okay this sounds complicated but it really isn’t. Also you can make any other shapes!)
F. Spread the egg on top of the snails, sprinkle them with sesame (or any) seeds if you wish, and let them rise around 30 minutes more.
G. Put them in pre-heated oven and bake them while golden brown at 190Β°C/370Β°F.
