Picture for Sweetrolls inspired by Skyrim

8,521,450 views  Well folks, after years of requests, they're finally here: the most tempting polygonal pastries ever put to PC, Sweetrolls from Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I've been terrified to take on this digital dessert for years, but after developing a recipe using a buttery-sweet brioche, I think it's finally ready for the main stage. [Insert joke about stealing sweetrolls here].

Thoroughly whisk until as smooth as possible. Once smooth, wrap in plastic wrap and chill it for at least half an hour, ideally overnight.

4.

When ready to make, pour vegetable oil into the cavities of a muffin tin and preheat in a 425°F oven for 10 minutes or until smoking.

2.

Add together with all-purpose flour and mix together until a smooth batter is formed.

all purpose flour

2 cups all purpose flour

3.

Generously butter the tube cans and spoon the batter inside. Make sure to wipe up any sticky excess. Cover with plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for 30 minutes during which the batter should expand double.

4.

Remove the plastic wrap and place the cakes onto a rimmed baking sheet and place into a preheated 350°F oven for 15 minutes or until lightly brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

5.

After letting the cakes cool in the pan for about 5 minutes, remove the cakes from the tube cans and let them completely cool on a wire rack.

6.

In which time the frosting can be made by mixing together confectioner’s sugar with low-fat milk and whisking together until smooth.

confectioner’s sugar

200 grams confectioner’s sugar

low fat milk

45 grams low fat milk

7.

At which point, generously spoon the frosting on top of the cake and enjoy it.

8.

For the Brioche Bread

1.

Into the bowl of a stand mixer goes all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, active dry yeast, and kosher salt. Whisk completely together.

all purpose flour

510 grams all purpose flour

granulated sugar

60 grams granulated sugar

active yeast (10 12 grams instant yeast)

14 grams active yeast (10 12 grams instant yeast)

kosher salt

15 grams kosher salt

2.

Place at the base of a stand mixer and add large room temperature eggs. Fix a dough hook to the mixer mixing and kneading together for 4-6 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and dough hook as necessary until the dough is smooth.

large eggs, room temperature

4 large eggs, room temperature

3.

With the stand mixer on low speed, add in (1-2 small pieces at a time) high-quality unsalted room temperature butter. After each addition crank up the speed a little bit allowing the butter to fully incorporate into the dough. This will take between 4-8 minutes between each addition of butter.

high quality unsalted butter, room temperature

225 grams high quality unsalted butter, room temperature

4.

After the last piece of butter has been added and fully incorporated into the dough, crank the stand mixer up to medium speed and knead for 5-8 minutes until it very nearly cleans the sides of the bowl.

5.

Once silky smooth, dump the dough onto a non floured surface and work into a smooth taut ball by passing the dough back and forth between each hand pinching the edges against the table.

6.

Into a generously buttered bowl, place the dough in seam side down and cover with plastic wrap letting it sit at room temperature for at least 60-90 minutes or until doubled in size.

7.

After 60-90 minutes, blop the dough back onto the countertop, punching it down, giving it a series of folds. Do so by starting at the top of the dough folding in towards the center and repeat working around the dough until 6-9 folds have been completed.

8.

Repeat the edge pinching technique from step 5 then place back into a bowl covered with plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge between 12-48 hours, or place into a well-buttered bowl letting proof for 1 hour.

9.

After removing from the fridge, carefully remove from the bowl then depending on its purpose divide the dough into pieces. Divide in half if making easy brioche bread.

10.

Turn the half dough onto a well-floured surface and roll it out into a rectangle, about as wide as the intended loaf pan. Then roll it up lengthwise to fit into the loaf pan hiding the seams underneath the roll before adding to a well-buttered and floured non-stick loaf pan.

11.

Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature anywhere from 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 ½ hours. The loaf should have doubled in size during this time. Poke to make sure the dough doesn’t spring back.

12.

Brush the top with a beaten egg before placing it into a 375°F oven for 45 minutes. Rotate halfway through baking and tinting with foil if it starts to brown too fast.

13.

It is fully done with a hollow sound when thumped on the bottom and when its thickest point reaches an internal temperature between 195°F to 210°F.

14.

Make sure to allow to cool completely, about an hour and a half, before slicing and enjoying.

15.

For the Brioche Sweetroll

1.

Start by generously buttering and flouring the tube pans, then divide the other half of the dough batch into four pieces then rolling into a ball before punching a hole in the center.

2.

Place each piece into the tube pans and press down to make sure there are no underlying bubbles. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature from anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.

3.

After passing the poke test, place onto a rimmed baking sheet brushed down with a beaten egg and then into a 375°F oven for 25-30 minutes.

4.

Immediately remove them from the tube pans and place them on a cooling rack to cool completely before draping with frosting.

5.

For the Giant Sweetroll

1.

Combine two batches of brioche dough together then pounding out into a disc.

2.

Using a biscuit cutter, cut a hole in the center of the dough before adding to a generously buttered and floured full-size tube pan making sure to press down to remove any underlying bubbles.

3.

Wrap in plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature until doubled in size.

4.

At which point, place into a 350°F oven for about an hour. Loosely cover with foil when it begins to brown too quickly.

5.

Remove once the internal temperature reaches 200°F. Remove from the tube pan, allowing to cool completely on a wire rack for at least 3 hours before topping with a big batch of the topped glaze.
