Key Shaped Eggless Yeasted Bread

If you are Homebaker and if you get a chance to bake shaped yeasted bread, what will be your reaction?. Needless to say mine will be definitely a happy dance. When i saw one of this month's blogging marathon's theme i didnt want to skip it and picked immediately. Yes my pick for this week's theme is Shaped yeasted bread. I have bookmarked some of the shaped breads from Pinterest long back, finally i went through them and i choosed three of them for this week's theme. My first shaped yeasted bread goes to this easy breezy but definitely a cute looking key shaped bread which you can serve along with a bowl of soup or else to decorate your dinner table if you are planning a get together.

Key Shaped Eggless Yeasted Bread

I have baking bread at home for a while and everytime it was big hit especially among my kids, this key shaped yeasted bread is completely eggfree but not butterfree. This cute looking key shaped bread makes an excellent accompaniment to serve even along with some spicy dips or chutneys for a starter.Do you know, shaping bread as in Key shapes is quite a tradition in Jewish cuisine. Since i went with the usual bread dough i have completely forgotten to add some herbs.Adding asome herbs to the bread dough might have turned this key shaped bread more flavourful, aromatic and delicious as well. As i told earlier, this post is going to this week's blogging marathon as i picked Shaped yeasted bread as theme.

Eggless Key Shaped Yeasted Bread

Recipe Source for shaping: Here
1cup Bread flour
1+1/2cup All purpose flour
1+1/4tsp Active dry yeast
1/2tsp Salt
75grms Butter (room temperature)
1/2cup Milk
1+1/2tbsp Sugar
1+1/2cup Luke warm water

Stir the luke warm water, 1/2tablespoon sugar, and yeast in a small bowl and let stand for 5minutes until the mixture turns foamy.

Melt butter,add the milk and heat to lukewarm.

Take together yeast mixture, remaining sugar, butter mixture, bread flour, and salt in a bowl,  then stir in the all-purpose flour and knead everything to make a slightly sticky dough.

Knead dough on a lightly floured surface,until the dough turns smooth and elastic .

Eggless Key Shaped Yeasted Bread

Divide the dough into 16 medium sized balls. Roll a ball as a long rope and an another ball as another medium sized rope. Cut the medium sized rope as long piece followed by two or three small pieces.

Now arrange the long piece and top it with the long rope by twisting it to form the head of the key.

Keep the small pieces to the edge of the long piece of the dough and arrange them over a baking tray lined with a baking sheet.

Let dough get rise, covered loosely,keep aside for 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F for 5minutes.

Brush the top of key shaped dough with milk and bake in middle of oven until golden for 15 to 20 minutes.

Let the rolls cools completely. Enjoy.

These breads are so cute and I won't be even think of eating them. I agree that adding some herbs would have elevated its flavors :)
