Blogging Marathon Day 2 Week1
I loved the Braided Bread with the mushroom and corn stuffing that I made yesterday for Day 1 of the Blogging Marathon. With some dough left over I wanted to try another baked goodie with the dough and the jam roll was the simplest with the viral not having let me make my dishes in advance and putting me on a back foot. So jam roll it was and came out beautifully. Only thing in my enthusiasm I added in a little more of jam. It just smearing half a tsp of jam that is required. Do not add blobs of jam as the filling , it will ooze out while baking.
Ingredients for the Dough
Source : Yummytummyaarthi
All Purpose Flour or Maida - 2 1/2 cups
Active Dry Yeast - 1.5 tsp
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1.5 tsp
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp + 1 for greasing in the vessel where you would rest the dough)
Warm Milk - 3/4 cup
Warm water - 1/4 cup
Method for making the jam rolls:
For the Dough:
For the Bread:
1- Take 1/4 cup warm water in a cup and add 2 tbsp sugar to it. Add the yeast and keep aside for 5-7 minutes for the yeast to rise.
2- Take a bowl, add the all purpose flour/maida, salt, 2 tbsp of oil and the fermented yeast. Add warm milk little by little and bring together into a dough (like that for chapati). Grease a vessel with oil. Keep the dough in it, cover and keep aside for 1 to 1.5 hrs to rise. The dough will more than double in size. After an hr, punch the dough down to remove all the excess air. Keep aside.
3- Make small balls of the dough. Take one ball and roll out into a circular disk. Smear jam on it. Fold both ends towards the centre. Now pull the other 2 ends to elongate it and roll it up into a circular ball shape like you see in the picture. You can also decide to give it any other shape like a knot as you desire.
4- Brush the rolls with milk. Place in a pre-greased baking dish. Bake for 12 minutes at 180 deg C and then at 220 deg c for 6-7 minutes. Serve warm. You may decide to brush it with some butter before serving for that added taste and a glaze.
