Scottish Baps

A Scottish bap is a Scottish yeast bread roll usually prepared in round shape in most areas of Scotland, but it can be made in other shapes. Scottish baps are not as tall or as small as American bread rolls and are not sweet like Irish bread rolls. They have a little indentation in the center and are flour-dusted. The Scottish bap is a staple food that may be eaten at any time of day in Scotland.A traditional way to serve a Scottish bap is to butter it or else fill it with meat and eat it like a sandwich.A Scottish bap should always be soft and floury which ressembles quite like bagels. Scottish baps are made from a dough of flour, butter, salt, yeast, water and milk. The bap dough is often kneaded and left to rise several times before being formed into rounds and baked. The center of the bap is pinched with the fingers to let air escape and the bap is dusted with flour before baking..We had this scottish baps with butter, jam and with nutella spread for our sunday breakfast and we enjoyed each and every bite of this fantastic bread roll..I found this Scottish Bap from the my baking cookbook,this beautiful Scottish Baps goes to Champa's Baking From A Book - Breakfast & to her Bake Off Event, finally to Susan's Yeastspotting..


3+1/2cups Bread flour or All purpose flour
2tsps Active dry yeast
1cup Luke warm milk
1/2cup Luke warm water
1tsp Sugar
Salt
2tbsp Butter (melted)
1tbsp All purpose flour

Mix the active dry yeast,sugar and luke warm milk,water, salt in a bowl, keep aside for 10 minutes in a warm place until the yeast mixture turns foamy..Sift the flour and make a well in the centre, add the yeast mixture and butter, knead as a soft dough, shape into a ball and place this soft dough in a greased bowl, cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave in warm place for an hour..


Punch down the double dough, knead for few minutes, divide into 12 pieces, knead a ball of dough for a minutes and roll again as a ball, repeat the remaining dough..Preheat the oven to 210F..slightly dust the baking trays with flour, place the baps on the trays and dust with all purpose flour, cover with a towel and leave in warm place for few minutes or until they get risen..make an indent in the centre of each bap with ur finger..

Arrange the tray in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 25-30minutes until the crust turns brown or cooked through...Serve warm with jam or any spread!!!
