This roll is used in Puebla, Mexico for a popular sandwich of the same name. It also would be good for a hamburger or pulled pork sandwich. The roll is sort of a cross between challah and brioche.
- 2 cups flour (9 oz)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon yeast
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄4 cup canola oil
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 1⁄2 cups sesame seeds
Directions See How It's Made
- In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour,salt, sugar, yeast); whisk together the eggs and oil.
- Heat the buttermilk over low heat until warm (110 degrees F); do not let boil!
- Stir the buttermilk and egg mixture into the dry ingredients until liquid is incorporated; let stand 15 minutes.
- On a lightly floured work surface, knead dough until smooth (it will still be a little sticky).
- Place dough in a oiled bowl, cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 1/2 hours.
- Depending on how large you want your rolls, divide the dough into eight or four balls, cover, and let rest 15 minutes.
- Take each ball and flatten it to a disc; place each roll on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, a few inches apart.
- Cover baking sheet and let rolls rise for 30 minutes.
- Preheat ove to 400 degrees F; mix milk and water and brush the top of each roll and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Bake rolls until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.
- NOTE: Bread lasts a day, but freezes well.
