Twist bread: a new spin on the traditional bread roll

The weekend is approaching. For many this means cozy, endless brunches with family and friends. Biscuits, toast, and English muffins are always good choices, but too much of the same thing can get boring after awhile. Try this twist bread recipe for your next brunch, and everyone at the table will be over the moon!

You will need:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 and 1/2 tsp. yeast
  • 2 eggs (1 for glazing)
  • 1/3 cup warm milk
  • 2 and 1/2 tbsp. melted butter
  • sesame seeds
  • flaxseeds

Here's how:

  1. Mix the flour, sugar, and salt together.
  2. Allow the yeast to dissolve in a litte warm water (about 2 tbsp.), and then add it to the flour, sugar and salt.
  3. Now add the egg, warm milk, and butter. 
  4. Gently mix all the ingredients together using a spoon, and allow the dough to proof for one hour. 
  5. Meanwhile, roll an A4 size piece of paper into a cone shape, then wrap the cone with baking paper. You will need to make four of these. 
  6. When your dough is finished proofing, knead it one last time and form into a large ball. Now cut into four even sections. Roll these sections to create long, thin ropes that measure about 20 inches in length.  
  7. Wrap the long pieces of dough tightly around the end of each cone. Place all four on a lined baking tray, cover, and let sit for 10 minutes. 
  8. Brush with egg, and sprinkle with sesame seeds and flaxseeds.
  9. Preheat the oven to 390°F and bake for 20 minutes. 

After cooling, remove the bread from the cones and fill with whatever your heart desires! Scrambled eggs, cream cheese, and jam are great choices, but the possibilities are endless. Twist bread is also perfect for a party buffet or picnic, because it can be easily eaten without utensils. Enjoy!
