Basil Flower Mini Bread Rolls#BreadBakers

This month's BreadBakers' theme is Bake Bread With Flowers and our host is Mireille Roc. Thank you for hosting this month's event.
I, have basil plants growing in plenty, one of my plants blooms with basil flower, decide to make the bread with basil flower infused oil. 
These are vegan mini rolls so soft and spongy. 

Makes 10 Mini Rolls 
300 Grams All Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Cornflour
1 Teaspoon Instant yeast
1 Teaspoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Cup Basil Flower Olive Oil
Water to knead
To make Basil Flower Infused Oil
Stalks of Basil Flower
Olive Oil as required to keep the flower stalks submerged 


How to make Basil Flower Infused Oil
Wash and dry the basil flower stalks. Place them in a clean and sterilized jar. Pour the olive oil till they are submerged and an inch of oil over the top of the stalks.  
Cover and keep it for a day or two, then use. This oil is 3 months old, its so flavorful and has a beautiful aroma. 

For the Rolls
In a food processor add all the ingredients expect the water and run the processor till all are mix together . Then keep of adding  water till it starts coming together.

Knead to medium soft dough, take it out of the processor and on to a greased work surface take the basil flower olive oil and knead again till it is smooth and soft. Keep this in a oiled bowl and brush a little oil over the dough. Keep it covered in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes ( since its summer here it took 20 minutes).
When the dough has doubled, punch it down and divide it into 10 parts. Roll them into smooth ball and place it in the mould . 
Cover with a damp cloth and let them double in size. In the meantime preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Brush them with water or soy milk. 
Once they double in size and bake them  until golden brown, about 20 to 22 minutes.
Remove the rolls from the oven, and brush immediately with the basil flower oil. 
After 5 minutes, carefully transfer them to a rack. 
Enjoy them for breakfast or dinner
See how soft and spongy they are..
