Brown Sugar Cafe Au Lait Rolls

Brown Sugar Cafe Au Lait Rolls

You can leave it up to the bread maker up to do the first rise. It's soft and fluffy, and is one bread that just makes me happy.
Enjoy it with a warm drink.

Ingredients: 18cmx18cm square pan

Bread (strong) flour
250 g
Nestlé bright (if you have it. It is powdered milk creamer from New Zealand).
20 g
Soy milk or milk
40 g
Slightly strongly brewed coffee
140 ml
25 g
Brown sugar
35 g
4 g
Dry yeast
4 g (1.5 teaspoons)
Walnuts or your favorite nut
60 g


1. Place the ingredients into the bread maker, make an indent in the flour, and add the yeast. Turn it on using the "bread dough course". Add the nuts at the add ingredients signal.
2. When finished, place the dough onto a floured surface, cut into 9 equal portions using a dough knife, and roll the dough balls to enclose the seam.
3. Place the dough with the seam facing downwards, cover with a well wrung out rag; and let rest for 15 minutes.
4. Place the dough in the palm of your hand one by one and stretch them to remove the gas. Form them back into balls, and place them on a pan lined with parchment paper with a space in between each one.
5. Let the rolls sit in a warm spot for about an hour for the second rise. Let them rise until they about double in size, until they fill the pan completely.
6. ※ You can also use the bread rise setting on your oven. If you do, do so at 40℃ for 50 minutes.
7. Bake in an oven preheated to 200℃ for 5 minutes, reduce to 180℃, and bake for 15 minutes.
8. Once they have finished baking, immediately flip the pan upside down and take them out, and let cool on a wire rack. They are so fluffy it feels like you will crush them!

Story Behind this Recipe

While I was having a coffee and a crepe, I thought up this creamy and fluffy bread.
