News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Nov. 1, 2019: This week we take you on a culinary journey to Guyana where the tennis roll is a popular type of bread, especially served with cheese. Here’s how to make it.
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm milk
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. yeast
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla essence
Activate the yeast by adding it to warm water and letting it sit for 10 minutes, covered with a towel.
Add all the rest of the ingredients – except the flour – into the yeast mixture and stir well.
Add the two types of flour to a bowl and add the liquid mixture a bit at a time to form a dough.
Knead the dough for about 10-12 minutes.
Cover and set aside to rest for 45 mins.
Roll out dough into a long piece, cut into pieces and make into balls.
Cover and let rest for 35 minutes.
Place into an oiled and lightly floured baking pan and bake at 375 F for 20 mins.
Brush on top with sugar water and let it cool.
Enjoy warm or cold with cheese and butter inserted into a roll cut in the center!
