Method

 

Preheat the oven to 180 °C. Grease two medium bread tins.

1 Combine the milk, sugar and yeast in the bowl and allow to stand for 5 minutes until the mixture is frothy.

2 Add the eggs and beat until well-incorporated. The mixture should be light and creamy.

3 In a bowl, add the flour and salt. Add the butter and rub it in to form a breadcrumb consistency. While beating the eggs, pour in the flour mixture until a soft dough forms.

4 Put the wet dough on a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes until slightly firm.

5 Put the dough in a greased bowl. Cover with clingfilm and allow to rise for 1 hour. Divide the dough into 60 g balls and put them two-by-two in the loaf tin. Allow to rise for another 30 minutes. 6 Brush the tops with the egg-wash. Bake for 40 minutes until the loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
