Italian Milk Rolls – Panini al Latte

Panini al Latte spennellati
I love this Panini al latte (Milk Rolls)! They are so tasty and versatile. Try them with prosciutto, salmon, or some jam.
Preparation: 40 minutes

Servings: 8 People


  • Stand Mixer
  • Baking Pan


For the First Dough

  • 500 gr Bread Flour (W360)
  • 250 gr Wholefat Milk
  • 200 gr Ripe Sourdough refreshed twice
  • 30 gr Fresh Yeast

For the Second Dough

  • 1 kg Bread Flour (W360)
  • 500 gr Whole fat Milk
  • 300 gr Butter
  • 100 gr Granulated Sugar
  • 50 gr Milk Powder (optional)
  • 35 gr Salt


For the First Dough

  • Pour all the ingredients into the stand mixer bowl. Knead with the hook at medium speed until the dough is well-formed and elastic.
  • Let rise the dough at 26-28°C (79°F - 82°F) for about 2 hours until it triples its volume.

For the Second Dough

  • Knead the first dough with the flour and work it very well until forming a good gluten mesh
  • Add the milk powder (optional) and fresh milk several times.
  • When the dough is well combined, add the salt and soft butter.
  • Let the dough ferment for 30min a 30°C (86°F).
  • Divide portions of the dough of 30-40gr and round them with your hands.
  • Let rest for 10 minutes, and finally, give them the final shape. Place the buns on a baking sheet
  • Let proof the buns at 28°C (82°F) for 90 minutes. Before baking, let leave at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to form a thin "skin" on the surface.
  • Polish with yolk and heavy cream (or milk) in equal weight and bake at 180°C (356°F) for about 15 minutes.
  • Once baked, let cool the sandwiches very quickly to preserve their moisture.
