Coming at you with another sourdough recipe folks!
These rolls are amazing and blow me away with how incredibly soft they are!
They do have some yeast in so they do not require as long of a rise time as some sourdough breads, so it is a good recipe to use when you need to do something with your sourdough starter in the middle of the day.
2/3c. active sourdough starter
2c. milk, warm
2 tsp. yeast
2 tsp. salt
7c. all-purpose flour
6 T. soft butter
egg wash ( 1egg beaten with 1T. water )
sesame seeds (optional)
In mixer bowl combine, sourdough starter, milk, eggs, yeast, salt, sugar and about 1/3 of the flour until a loose, shaggy dough is formed. Cover dough and let rest for 30 minutes.
After the dough has rested, knead the dough for 7-8 minutes, gradually adding the rest of the flour and the butter. You may need more flour. The dough should be soft and slightly sticky, but pulling away from the sides of the bowl as it kneads.
Put dough in a greased bowl and let rise for 2-3 hours until doubled.
Divide the dough into portions that are about 80g. each (I hardly ever weigh my food but this is the one exception because it is so fun to have them the same size!) To shape the rolls, pull the edges of the dough ball to the middle, then cup your hand around the ball and roll on the counter until it is a tight ball. Place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart and slightly flatten. Cover and let rise 1-2 hour or until they look doubled and are pretty much touching. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-22 minutes. The rolls should be a beautiful golden brown. Have yourself a delicious sandwich!
