Milchbrötchen



Hallo und herzlich willkommen zu meinem Blog. Heute geht es um ein oft angefragtes Rezept und zwar das der Milchbrötchen.

Los geht’s.

Zutaten
– 350g Mehl
– 3 EL Zucker
– 1 Päckchen Trockenhefe/ frische Hefe
– 2/3 TL Salz
– 190g lauwarme Milch
– 30g Butter (Raumtemperatur)

Zubereitung

1. Gebe zu der lauwarmen Milch das Zucker und die Hefe hinzu, vermische sie gut und lass sie für etwa 10 bis 15 Minuten ruhen.

2. In einer anderen Schüssel mischst du nun Mehl und Salz. Wenn du wirklich fluffige Brötchen haben willst, dann nimm einen Esslöffel an Mehl raus und ersetze es durch einen Esslöffel Speisestärke, das macht die Mischung super luftig und leicht.

3. Nachdem du deine Hefemischung hast ruhen lassen, fügst du sie zum Mehl und Salz hinzu und knetest den Teig gut durch. Nachdem sie alles verbunden hat, gibst du die weiche Butter hinzu und knetest den für mindestens 10 Minuten mit den Händen. Natürlich kannst du auch dein Küchengerät verwenden, wenn du eins hast.

4. Forme einen Ball, lege ihn in eine Schüssel und decke ihn mit einem Küchentuch ab. Lass den Teig für mindestens eine Stunde ruhen, um ein besseres Ergebnis zu erhalten, lasse ihn für zwei Stunden an einem warmen Ort gehen.

5. Nach der Ruhezeit knetest du den Teig ochmals gut durch und teilst ihn in kleine Kugeln, die du in einer befetteten Form mit etwas Abstand reingibst. Lasse zwischen den Kugeln ein wenig Platz, da sie weiter aufgehen werden. Wenn du nun alles in deiner From hast, dann den Teig wieder zugedeckt 30 Minuten gehen lassen, bevor du es im vorgeheizten Ofen backst. Die Milchbrötchen nachdem du sie gebacken hast wieder mit einem sauberen Küchentuch zugedeckt abkühlen lassen, aber ich esse sie gerne warm mit Marmelade, Schokoaufstrich oder mit frischen Früchten.

bei 180°C für 20-30 Minuten backen


Viel Spaß beim Nachmachen und ich freue mich wie immer auf euer Feedback!

Milkbread

Hello there and welcome back to my blog. Today I am uploading a very much requested recipe of milk buns.

Let’s get right to the ingredients

Ingredients

– 350g flour
– 3 tbsp sugar
– 1 paket dry yeast/or fresh yeast
– 2/3 tsp salt
– 190g warm milk
– 30g butter (room temperature)

Preparation

1. Combine your warm milk, it should be lukewarm (32°C to 38°C) with sugar and yeast and mix them well. Let them rest aside for about 10 to 15 minutes.

2. In another bowl, mix flour and salt. If you want to have an extra fluffy texture, take one tablespoon flour out and add corn starch instead. This will make your buns really soft.

3. After letting your yeast mixture chill, add this to the flour-sat mix and knead the dough. When the dough comes together you can add in the soft butter and knead through. Try kneading at least 10 minutes by hand. Feel free to use your machine.

4. Form a ball, put it into a bowl, cover it with a clean table cloth and let your dough rest for at least an hour, for best results let it rest for two hours.

5. After the resting time, knead your dough again and form small balls, your desired size, and put them into a greased form. Let a bit of space between each ball, because they will rise more. Now yet again let your dough rest for 30 minutes before putting it into the oven.

bake at 180°C for 20-30 minutes

Trip to Amsterdam


typical houses in Amsterdam

Hello there and welcome to my blog, happy you are here.

Last weekend I was with friends on a trip to Amsterdam and here come a few things you may be interested in.

After approximately one and half hour flight from Munich we were in Amsterdam. The first to do was to buy a ticket. There are vending machine inside the airport, which are yellow, but you will ot need to buy a ticket there, if you won’t take the train elsewhere. Outside the aiport hall is a red van, which sells tickets for public transportation. There are options like one day ticket, two day- and three day ticket. The latter costs 28€ and is for public transportation. There are other options like Amsterdam and surrounding areas, but we did not need that one. We had to get to Centraal, therefore we took the bus, then the metro, but we could have taken the Intercity, which takes you directly to Centraal within 20 minutes. Check out beforehand if your hotel has an Airport Shuttle.

After arriving at Centraal, we had to take the ferry to our hotel, which was DoubleTree by Hilton NDSM Wharf. We relaxed bit in our rooms and then we were off to check out the city. As it was past lunch time, 4pm and we still did not have proper food, we decided to go to an indian restaurant ‘India Roti Room’. My tip: the chicken tikka (tandoori) is sooo yummy, an absolute recommandation!

Then we just walked around the area and came to Amsterdam’s Jewish Quarter, where you can find a Portugese Synagoge. Along the way you will see so many bridges and beautiful places. We kept walking until it was evening, where we came across an american bookstore, where people shared their poems, stories and books. Apart from that the bookstore has loads and loads and loads of books, as well as seatings. From there we took the tram back to Centraal, where we bought a few things for later. The mini supermarkets name is Albert Heijn at Centraal is open 24 hours.

The next day we went to ‘Tropenmuseum’, which has a lot of different exhibitions, like longing for Mekka, Cool Japan, Afterlives of Slavery, Things That Matter, Bitter Chocolate Stories. This is something you can do on a rainy day. It is so mesmerizing, sad yet hopeful.

In the evening we went on a boat ride for one and half hours. We booked it on tripadvisor, for 16€ per person. But let me tell you this, you have a lot and by that I mean a lot of possibilities to book a boat ride. You will find a few in Centraal and a few other places too. But the one we took was great, it was warm inside with a roof, which was a blessing, because it was really cold that night. On our way back to our hotel we came by a waffle store ‘van Wonderen Stroopwafels’, they were yummy but a bit messy to eat, at least for me. After walking for a while we bought fries, which I did not find special.

The last morning we went to Exki at Centraal for breakfast. Let me tell you: they have vegan food, warm breakfast and homemade cakes, which taste incredible. I took the banana filled one, which was yo light and yummy.
Be aware that they sell out really fast, especially the cakes. I know that, because when we came back at 4pm there was only one last piece of the lemon merengue cake.

At 5pm we took the Intercity to the Airport and that was our trip to Amsterdam. I hope I could help you somehow and give you good tips. If you are interested in a few videos, feel free to visit my Instagram @nabaslifeflow and there you will find my Amsterdam highlights.

Wish you a great day and until next time, love you.
