Brazilian Sweet Rolls

I love sweet bread, and sweet rolls. I think I like them because of their soft and light texture. But these rolls are not like the sweet Hawaiian rolls found in USA. They are more like the sweet bread found at Brazilian bakeries.

This recipe was inspired by a combination of Brazilian sweet bread recipes along with all the bread recipes I have been reading from King Arthur flour. I love their website. So I already tried a lot of their bread recipes and I came up with this one, that reminds me of the Brazilian sweet rolls.

They are super easy to make. I like to use my bread maker, because I can just place all ingredients in there and the machine does all the work for me.

But, if you like to use your stand mixer with the dough hook, that’s totally fine too. Also if you want to do it by hand, just place all ingredients in a large bowl and knead very well until you get a smooth dough.

So check out today’s full recipe. I’m sure you will love these rolls as much as I do.

Enjoy:).

Ingredients:

1/2 cup warm water

1/4 cup warm milk

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 eggs room temperature

5 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups + 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Prepare:

*I prefer to use the bread maker: just place all ingredients in the order listed above and select the “dough” cycle.

  • Don’t forget to check inside 5 minutes after the program started, because you may need to add more flour if the dough is too wet, or more water if the dough is too dry.

  • Let the machine finish its cycle.

* If you don’t have bread maker, you can make the dough:

1) Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat using the dough hook until all ingredients have been combined. About 5-6 minutes.

2) Place all ingredients into a large bowl and knead with your hands until all ingredients have been combined. About 10 minutes.

  • Let the dough rise for 1 hour in the bowl you used (cover the bowl with a clean kitchen cloth).
  •  Grease a 9×13 cake pan with butter.
  • Take the dough and put it on a floured surface. Gently make a circle with the dough.
  • Split the dough into 4 equal parts.

  • Each part of the dough, split in 4 more equal pieces.

  • So you will have 16 equal pieces in total.
  • Shape into balls.
  • Place rolls on the prepared baking pan.

Bakery rolls5.1

  • Cover with a clean kitchen cloth.
  • Let them rise for 30-45 minutes in a warm place.

*I usually warm up the oven for 20 minutes and turn it off. Place the baking pan inside and leave the door of the oven a little open.

  • After the rolls are puffy, gently brush them with an egg wash. If you prefer, you can sprinkle some sugar on top.

Bakery rolls7

  • Bake at 350oF (preheated oven) for about 18-20 minutes or until golden.

  • Serve them warm with butter, cream cheese, jam…endless options 😉
  • Look how soft they are:

  1. Wow! I’ve never heard of Brazilian sweet rolls. I will definitely try these. What kind of meal would you eat these with? Would it be similar to a North American sweet roll that one would have with, say, a turkey dinner?

    1. I’m glad you liked the recipe. In Brazil, we usually eat these rolls for breakfast. They are also good with an afternoon coffee. Spread some cream cheese or butter or even make a ham and cheese sandwich with them and you can have a good snack…Oh! So good!!! Please let me know if you try the recipe 😊😘.
