Dinner Rolls With Seeds In Paper Tea Cups#BreadBakers

These quick homemade dinner rolls with seeds are easy to make, soft, fluffy and delicious. I made these glass shaped by baking them in paper tea cups. 
These look so cute..aren't they!!

Makes 7  Rolls

300 Grams Bread Flour
200 Ml Warm Milk
11 Grams Hefe / Fresh Yeast
2 Teaspoons Sugar
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Oil
50 Ml Water
7  Paper Tea Cups
3 Tablespoons  Mixed seeds - black & white sesame seeds and flak seeds

In a mixing bowl or food processor add the sugar, yeast, milk, when the yeast starts to bubble, add the flour, salt and oil, and run the processor on low speed adding the water a little at a time till it forms into a dough. Now run the food processor on high speed to make a nice soft and smooth dough for about 8 to 10 minutes.
Shape the dough into a ball and lightly coat with oil. Cover with damp cloth and set it at room temperature to double in volume.

Brush 7 paper tea cups with oil and keep aside.

When the dough has doubled, punch it down and divide it into 7 parts.  I used the kitchen scale to make equal parts around 79 to 80 grams each.
Place  balls, seam side down, in each  cup. Brush them with milk, sprinkle seeds cover theses cups  with damp cloth , put it in a warm spot and let them rise till they double in size.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.Once they double in size and bake them until golden brown, about  25 to 30 minutes.
Remove the rolls from the oven, and brush immediately with the  melted butter. 
After 5 minutes, un mould, carefully transfer them to a rack.
Serve warm, or at room temperature. Enjoy them for breakfast or dinner.
