Today's World Bread Day - My Soft Butter Bread

apparently, everyone is making bread in the blogsphere today. i read so many interesting bread recipes and now i just can't wait for the weekend to try at least a couple of them!
in the meanwhile, i though i could write my bread recipe, for some cute and soft little breads that make you smile right before yum them :) those in the picture have raisins, since i planned to eat them with butter and smoked salmon for a healthy fast food dinner.

Little Soft Breads

first phase: let 20gr of fresh yeast dissolve in 120gr of water. let it rest for 10 minutes, then add 200gr of white flour and knead. let the dough rest for one hour and a half, until doubled.
second phase: now add 300gr of flour, 30gr of butter at room temperature, 10gr of salt and 10gr of sugar, one dl of milk and one yolk. knead well for at least 15 minutes and let the dough rest for another hour.
third phase: have fun inventing shapes for your breads and bake in the oven 180degrees for around 20 minutes... check them since the baking time depends on the size and the shapes of your breads. you can brush your breads with a beaten yolk before baking, to embellish your little cute creations :)
