This past weekend is not much different than the last 2 weekends in September. I baked a lot :) It started with the cupcake pops, then continuing on to this sausage and cheese bread. My recipe for these only yielded 8 breads and I regretted not doubling the batch because the bread was very good. It's really moist and soft, even after 3 days and without reheating in the microwave. I would really recommend this recipe for you all to try. :)
250 g bread flour
60 g powdered sugar
10 g powdered milk
1 packet instant dry yeast
1/2 tsp dough conditioner
2 egg yolks
100 ml water
50 g butter, at room temperature
1/2 tsp salt
4 slices cheddar cheese
Sift the flour, sugar, milk, yeast, and dough conditioner together in a mixing bowl. Add in the egg yolks and start kneading the dough using a stand mixer (or hand mixer) with a dough hook attachment. While kneading, slowly pour in the water. Continue kneading until the dough starts to pull from the sides of the bowl. Add in the butter and continue kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic (about 30 minutes for me).
Let the dough proof in a humid and warm place for an hour in a lightly greased bowl covered with plastic wrap. When the dough has doubled in size, gently punch the air out of the dough and divide into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into a round ball and let rest for about 10-15 minutes. When the dough is well rested, roll it into the shape of a long log. Take 1/2 slice of cheese and 1 sausage and wrap them with the dough. Let proof for another hour.
When they are ready to bake, brush the doughs with milk and bake at 300F for 15 minutes.
