Butternut Rolls

These rolls are deliciously moist and soft and make for a great dinner roll, with a boost of veggies!!

190ml cooked and mashed butternut (about one large butternut)
190ml milk
10g instant yeast
450g bread flour
50g cake flour
45g caster sugar
15ml honey
7,5ml salt
45g butter
about 45ml melted butter

Add the mashed butternut and milk to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook.
Mix together on a low speed for 2 minutes.
Add the yeast, bread flour, cake flour, caster sugar and honey and mix on a low speed until the mixture comes together as a rough dough.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Cut the butter into small pieces and set aside.
Remove the plastic wrap, add the salt and knead the dough on medium speed for 1 minute.
Add the butter pieces one at a time, with the machine running and knead until the dough is silky smooth. About 6 minutes.
Lightly oil a mixing bowl and place the dough in it. Cover and allow to rise until double in size (about 1 hour).
Preheat your oven to 180℃ and spray a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray.
Transfer the dough to a working surface and divide into twelve equal pieces.
Roll each piece of dough into a ball and place it into the prepared muffin tin.
Cover the muffin tin with a plastic bag and allow to rise for 30 minutes.
Bake the rolls for 16 minutes.
Melt an additional 45ml of butter in the microwave oven.
Take the rolls from the oven, brush the rolls with the melted butter and place back in the oven for a further 3 minutes.
Take the rolls from the oven and cool on a cooling rack.
Serve with butter and honey.
