Bread Rolls

Bread is probably THE food staple eaten by people of every race, culture and religion and did you know, it takes 9 seconds for a combine to harvest enough wheat to make 70 loaves! just some interesting facts I thought i would share.

These simple bread rolls are not only tasty but they leave your home smelling like your local bakery, I don't know what could be more homely.

Bread Rolls

Makes: 8

Prep: 10 minutes

Total Rise: 2 hours

Bake: 12-15 minutes


  • 500 grams white strong bread flour

  • 7 grams = 1 sachet easy blend/fast action yeast

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 325 millilitres warm water


  1. Place flour & salt into a bowl, give it a stir to evenly distribute the salt. make a well then add yeast, oil and water mix until a dough forms and then place either on a oiled work surface or in your stand mixer knead for 5-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and it springs back when you prod your thumb/finger into it. Cover bowl and leave to rise at room temperature(no need to put in a warm place, just ensure there is no draft) for 1 hour.

  2. Take the dough out of the bowl and knead/knock back on a lightly floured surface for a few seconds. Divide dough into 8 equal portions they should be around 100 grams each. Leave to rest for 10 mins, this will make it easier when shaping.

  3. Take each ball of dough, flatten and then fold into the middle this will create a 'spine' which will help the roll keep it shape inside the oven and cook evenly, turn over so the seam is underneath. Create a cage with your fingers around the dough and then move your hand in a circular motion - this will shape the roll. Put rolls onto a floured baking tray or bakers peel, cover and leave to rise for 40 minutes. If you want to bake your rolls on a pizza stone, place in the oven and then pre-heat to 220C /200CFAN/Gas Mark 6 you can also put an old roasting tin at the bottom of the oven and fill with kettle water.

  4. Carefully slide your rolls onto the pizza stone or just place your baking tray inside the oven for 12-15 minutes, remove roasting tin with water after 8 minutes. To ensure the rolls are baked enough, flip one over and tap the base, it should produce a hollow sound, yes i don't know what 1 of those are either

If your anything like me you won't be able to resist having one So whilst they are warm spread with butter, strawberry jam and serve with a good ol' cup of tea!
