A Simple Bread Roll Recipe with Wyke Farms Butter

It is not incredibly often that I make bread, let alone during early pregnancy but now I am through the major aversion stage of this pregnancy I am hungry!

So I decided to make some bread rolls or dinner rolls, but I decided to make 'real' bread with strong white bread flour, sorry Rob!

These bread rolls turned out to be so light and airy I was convinced I had actually underbaked them, but they are delicious! Once out of the oven they looked pretty as a picture, like a daisy in the white Le Creuset dish, and some rolls had a light dusting of flour on them which made them look really rustic. I glazed them with some Wyke Farms salted butter which is optional, but in my opinion just completes them.

Simple Bread Roll Recipe:

Servings: 12 bread rolls
Time: about 60 minutes


1 cup plus 1 tbsp of warm water
2 tbsp dried active yeast
1/4 cup of caster sugar
1/3 cup of sunflower oil

1 egg
1.5 tsp salt
3.5 cups of strong white bread flour

In a stand mixer bowl, combine the water, yeast, sugar and oil and set aside for around 15 minutes or until the yeast has grown up and the mixture looks frothy.

Preheat the oven to 200C or 180C Fan.

Add the egg, salt and flour to the wet ingredients and attach the dough hook to the stand mixer and leave it to mix on medium-high for 7-10 minutes until the dough is smooth and comes together.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and divide into 12 equal balls.

getting ready to bake

Arrange in a dish, such as a 13"x7" dish.

I used a greased, round Le Creuset dish which accommodated 9 unrisen bread rolls in a flower formation without over crowding. The remainder went in a separate cake pan.

Allow the bread rolls to rest for 10 minutes then bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes. I baked mine for 14 minutes and that was perfect for my oven.

ready to glaze with Wyke Farms butter

I then melted a few tablespoons of Wyke Farms salted butter in a dish and used a pastry brush to glaze the tops of the bread rolls. This is an optional step of course. You could always sprinkle some poppy or sesame seeds over the bread rolls too.

I enjoyed a mug of tomato soup with a bread roll buttered with salted Wyke Farms butter and I have also used to to make my first batch of homemade crumbly vanilla fudge, which tasted delicious!
