Rose buns

Although our sense of taste and sight are two different senses, we form our first impression when we have a first glance of our food. Its almost like saying we first eat with our eyes, then with our nose and then with our mouth..To our brains “taste” is actually a fusion of food's looks, smell, touch and taste.
                These buns will entice your eyes with beautiful rose shapes, you can smell the fresh bread being baked in your house right till the street out of your home. Finally when you bite these buns, you will feel teh soft buns melting in your mouth.
          We all love dinner rolls, figure of 8 rolls, round buns and all sorts of soft bread to go along with our entree. I wanted to try something new. So came up with the idea of Rose Buns. When we used to make basic felt flowers in school, this technique was used. Making four or more circles and rolling them to form a Rose.. I used the same technique to make bread and they turned out pretty yummy tasty roses..
What would be best is to form a bouquet of these breads and gift to your loved ones...

Try these Beautiful Rose buns....... I have given step by step instructions for the making of rolls. hope you all like it and make loads of buns..
  • 1 ½ cup plain flour
  • ½ tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp cream
  • ½ cup of water
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter

  • In a large bowl mix flour, salt, sugar and yeast. If you are using dry yeast you need to mix yeast in lukewarm water with sugar in it. Since I am using instant yeast, it can be directly added to the flour.
  • Add lukewarm water, cream and olive oil and knead the dough till its smooth and ealstic for about 10 mins. This helps gluten formation and results in softer bread.
  • Place the dough in a clean bowl covered with wet clean towel. Allow the dough to rest for about an hour till the dough doubles in size.
  • After the dough has well risen, start punching the dough and kneading it till its smooth again.
  • Now you can either make 6 balls and wait for 30 misn to raise and bake in oven or proceed to make our Rose Buns
  • Make 12 equal balls of the dough.
    For a pair of Rose Buns you will need 4 balls. Roll the balls into small discs of about 10 cm diameter
  • Arrange the 4 flattened discs, half stacking on top of each other.
  • Start rolling from left to right.
  • With a knife, cut the roll into two.
  • Place the Rose buns upright on a baking sheet.
    Let the buns rest till they are double in size.
    Top the buns with butter and chopped garlic
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 15 min till the Rose buns turn golden brown.

Enjoy the buns with your dinner or just with some butter when they are still warm and fresh
