The Easiest Bread Roll Recipe

on March 25, 2016

If I’m having a bad day, all I want to eat are carbs. Pasta, potatoes and bread are pretty much my nutritional life. When I have bad days, I want to bake. When I’m stressed, I want to punch things. Making bread basically puts all of these things into one afternoon!

This recipe doesn’t need anything fancy – everything can be picked up at your local supermarket and all you need are some scales, a bowl and your hands!

Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a bowl before rubbing in the butter with your fingers – it should resemble breadcrumbs. Combine the milk and water, and pour into the crater. Use a wooden spoon to combine the liquid and flour mixtures, and once mostly together, use your hands to bring the dough into a ball. Knead the dough for 20-25 minutes (great if you need some stress relief), then return to the original bowl. Cover in cling film or a clean tea towel and leave to prove for an hour or two in a warm place (it should double in size).  Once the dough has risen, knead again for a minute or two them separate into 8 equal parts. Roll each part into a ball and flatten slightly with your palm and place them onto a baking tray, reasonably close together. Cover again and leave for an hour. Uncover, then bake until golden-brown at 220 degrees (approximately 10 minutes).

A little tip – make sure they’re fully cooked because they just taste of yeast if they’re not! I learnt that the first time I ever made them last summer.
