Homemade Sweet Bread

This simple Homemade Sweet Bread recipe requires just eight ingredients and may be turned into dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, or sticky buns.

Ingredient

For the dough:

300g all-purpose flour

40g sugar

2g salt

7g dry yeast

1 egg

140ml warm milk

40g cream cheese

30g butter

For the custard filling:

300g custard

Feel free to experiment with ingredient replacements. For example, you can substitute all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour for a nuttier flavor. Additionally, if you’re looking for a lighter option, try using Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese in the dough.

Directions :

Mixing the Dough: In a bowl, beat together warm milk, sugar, yeast, egg, and cream cheese.

Adding Dry Ingredients: Add the all-purpose flour and salt to the mixture. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth.

Incorporating Butter: Knead the soft butter into the dough and set it aside for 2 hours or until it doubles in size.

Dividing and Shaping: Cut the dough into 12 pieces and roll each piece into a ball.

Filling with Custard: Flatten each ball of dough and place a tablespoon of custard inside. Pinch the edges together to seal the filling.

Resting Time: Set the filled dough balls aside for 30 minutes to allow them to rise.

Arranging in the Pan: Roll out each ball slightly and place them on a round, overlapping baking pan.

Final Rise and Baking: Set the assembled balls aside for an additional 1 hour. Bake at 160°C/320°F for 30 minutes. Brush with butter before serving.
