Sausage bread

A few days ago, I brought the kids to the supermarket for grocery shopping. DD1 chose a sausage bread for her breakfast. The buns don't look fresh so I promised her I'll bake her some one day. As I don't usually stock up on sausages, I bought a pack that day.

With that promise, I made some sausage bread yesterday for our breakfast today. As usual, I used the machine to knead the dough and let it proof inside. I made 9 buns instead of the recommended 12 as I do not have enough space in my baking pan to accommodate so many and I prefer not to bake on 2 racks.

Shaping the bread is relatively easy as the dough is easy to handle (I used slightly lesser liquid).

I did 9 buns though I'll prefer to make 10 since it comes in a pack of 10s. Now I've got 1 sausage sitting in my freezer.

Freshly baked buns, looks yummy and kids are thrilled!

DH is not a fan of sausages but still, he ate one for his breakfast this morning. Thanks dear!

Do check out dailydelicious's blog for step-by-step hand kneading instructions and pics.

Sausage Bread
(Makes 8 - 12 pieces)
300g Bread Flour
1 tsp Instant dried yeast
10g Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
30g Unsalted butter (soften)
200ml One egg plus whole milk
8 - 12 Sausages

  1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Let the machine knead for 15mins, stop the cycle and re-start the machine and let the dough knead for another cycle.
  2. Let it proof in machine for 30 - 45 mins or till double in size.
  3. When proofing is completed, punch down the bread dough to release the air.
  4. Cut the dough into 9 pieces (approx 60g each), roll into a ball and let them rest for 10 - 15 minutes.
  5. Using a rolling pin to roll the dough into an oval shape, place the sausage in the middle and cut both side of the dough into 7 - 8 strips. Fold the strips alternating the left and right over the sausage.
  6. Let it proof on lined or greased baking tray for another 50-60 mins or until dough is double in size.
  7. Bake at pre-heated oven at 200C for 10 minutes then reduce the temperature to 180°C and bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.
