This recipe for bread rolls is simple, straightf forward and always yields best results. A lot of people have the impression that baking bread is something reserved for the more experienced bakers, this is not true at all and I would encourage everyone to give it a go.
This recipe will make 24 dainty bread rolls or if you want them slightly larger (the size of a normal bread bap) will make about 16.
500g Plain Flour
4tbsp Caster Sugar
1.5tbsp Dried Yeast
2 tsp Salt
1tbsp Vegetable Oil
Sieve the flour, sugar, yeast and salt into a large bowl.
Mix in the butter until there are no large lumps of buter left.
Mix in the water.
Mix until this forms a dough, I find the dough hooks attachment to an electric whisk works wonders here. (dont worry if you dont have one, just mix really well).
Lightly flour the worktop and knead the dough for about 20 mins, this will help combine any smaller bits of butter still left in the dough.
Rub the 1tbsp oil over the ball of dough and place in a large bowl, cover with a cloth and leave to rise for 1 hour.
After 1 hour you will see that the dough his almost doubled in size. Use a sharp knife to divide this up and form small rolls.
Place on a baking sheet (about 9 on a large baking tray) and cover with a cloth, leave to rise again for 45 mins this time.
Bake in the oven for 10-12 mins at 200C. (If you decide to make the larger baps it may take slightly longer)
