Herbed Butterflaps - #BreadBakers

These Guyanese Butterflaps are puffy, buttery rolls that are filled with butter and folded.    These butterflaps take you to heaven when bitten !

I,  started making the butterflaps at 5 am, made them for breakfast for my guest.   They just could not believe that these are homemade.  They got over in a jiffy.   Made these in two batches managed to keep 3 for hubby and me.

Makes 16 to 18 depending on the size

3 Cups All purpose flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
3 Tablespoons Milk Powder
3/4  Cup Warm water
3 Tablespoons Sugar
2.1/4 Teaspoon Rapid Rising Yeast
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
2 Tablespoon Butter
For the spread - mix together
3 Tablespoons Salted Butter
1 Tablespoon Garlic - minced
1 Tablespoon Dill - finely chopped

2 Tablespoons Coriander - finely chopped fine
1 Teaspoon Oregano
1 Teaspoon Thyme
1/2 Teaspoon Black pepper powder

Warm the water, stir in the sugar and yeast and leave covered to bloom for 10-15 minutes till it is frothy.

Mix the flour, salt and milk powder and add the oil. Mix well.
Add the bloomed yeast and mix well with a spatula.

Knead well adding more milk or water only if required. Make it into a ball.  Take this dough on to a work surface and add butter by stretching and folding the dough till  the  butter is incorporated.  Keep stretching and  folding for about ten minutes to get a smooth and elastic dough.

Transfer to a oiled bowl and leave covered to rise for 1 to 1.1/2 hours till the dough doubles in volume. Gently deflate and divide into 16 to 18 equal balls. 

Roll into balls and roll out to small discs.

Spread the herbed butter on each disc.

Fold over and spread herbed butter on the top again.

Fold over to form a triangle.

Transfer to a greased baking tray and leave the butterflaps to rise for 45 minutes.

Preheat the oven at 180C for 15 minutes.Brush very gently with  remaing herbed butter. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 180C.

See my gorgeous beauties.

Remove and brush with butter.

Serve hot with a cup of heat. ......Bliss ...ss...!...
