Rolling in Dough: Bakery Bliss

There’s something truly magical about the aroma of freshly baked goods wafting through the air. As a masterful baker, I’m here to share with you a delightful recipe that promises to bring joy to your kitchen and your taste buds. Welcome to “Rolling in Dough: Bakery Bliss.”


Before we dive into the baking process, let’s gather our essential ingredients:

  • 500g all-purpose flour
  • 10g instant yeast
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 10g salt
  • 300ml warm milk
  • 100g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Assorted fillings (chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, etc. – your choice!)


1. Activate the Yeast: In a small bowl, combine the warm milk, sugar, and yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy. This ensures that the yeast is activated and ready to work its magic.

2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and salt. Create a well in the center.

3. Combine Wet and Dry: Pour the activated yeast mixture into the well of the dry ingredients. Add the softened butter.

4. Knead the Dough: Using your hands or a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment, knead the ingredients together until a smooth, elastic dough forms. This may take about 8-10 minutes.

5. First Rise: Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.

6. Shape and Fill: Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into equal portions. Roll out each portion into a flat rectangle and sprinkle your desired fillings (chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, etc.) evenly.

7. Roll and Cut: Roll up the dough tightly, starting from the longer side, to form a log. Slice the log into smaller pieces, each about 1-1.5 inches wide.

8. Second Rise: Place the cut dough pieces on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, leaving some space between each piece. Cover them with a damp cloth and let them rise again for another 30-45 minutes.

9. Preheat and Bake: Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Brush the risen dough pieces with beaten egg wash for a shiny finish. Bake them in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until they turn golden brown.

10. Enjoy! Once baked to perfection, remove the pastries from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack for a few minutes. Serve warm and enjoy the bakery bliss you’ve just created!

There you have it! With this “Rolling in Dough: Bakery Bliss” recipe, you’re on your way to becoming a star baker. Whether it’s a cozy morning treat or a delightful afternoon snack, these freshly baked goodies are sure to delight your senses. Happy baking!
