Recipe created for
Le Creuset Pumpkin Cocotte
1/2 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons sorghum syrup (substitute light molasses or raw honey if necessary)
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoon instant yeast
3 tablespoons butter at room temperature, cubed
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg white, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 teaspoon poppy seeds
1 teaspoon flax seeds
Heat milk to 95°F to 100°F. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine milk with sorghum syrup and salt. Stir to combine. Sprinkle yeast over the top and let sit 5 minutes of until foamy.
Add butter and flour and mix until well combined. Knead until dough is soft and smooth, about 5 minutes. Dough will be soft and pliable but still a bit sticky.
Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a clean towel and let rise 2 to 3 hours or until doubled in size.
Heat over to 400°F. Generously butter the Pumpkin Cocotte.
Punch down the dough and divide into 7 equal pieces, rolling each into a smooth ball. Arrange in the cocotte in a flower pattern, with one ball in the middle and six balls evenly spaced around the edge.
Lightly brush the tops of the rolls with the egg wash. Sprinkle the seeds generously. Cover and let rise until slightly puffed, about 30 minutes.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops are golden. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
