These Petit Pains au lait are delicious classic French milk rolls that you can fill with your favourite fillings or just to accompany a bowl of delicious French soup.
There are 3 stages in making this bread as is quite usual for most yeast breads of this style.
Don't let this worry you. It is simple and all comes together very easily. You just need some time.
You will enjoy the eating at the end, but will also be amazed at how much the process is rewarding.
Personally, I love mixing, smelling and eating homemade baked bread. And this beautiful French recipe is superb. (Try other great French bread recipes at home.)
Assemble your 6 ingredients together, following the instructions on how to mix it up which is very important.
The 2 photos below show you what your bread will look like after mixing the dough.
And then after the rising stage is complete.
The time it takes for the rising stage depends, to a great extent on the temperature of the room.
The warmer it is the faster it will rise.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface again and knock it back, in other words, punch it!
Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and shape them into balls for your bread rolls.
Cut a cross on the top of each one with a sharp knife.
They should look something like this.
Cover with lightly oiled clear film or a clean damp teacloth and leave for another hour or until doubled in size.
Brush the tops of the bread rolls with milk and place in a preheated oven.
Bake at 200C/400F/Gas 6 and bake for about 20 minutes or until they are golden brown in colour.
Place them on a wire rack to cool.
Don't worry, you have a choice to print the photo or not, when you click print! ;-)
