The Method Enter Bake mode

  1. Classic mode Step 1

    MIX

    Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Using your fingertips rub in the butter until only fine ‘crumbs’ are left. Mix in the water with a cutlery knife.

    Ingredients for this step

    • 500g 17⅝ oz Strong white bread flour (we use Allinson) Strong white bread flour
    • 7g ⅜ oz Easy bake yeast (we use Allinson) Easy bake yeast
    • 1½tsp 1 .5tsp Unrefined golden caster sugar (we use Billington's)
    • 1½tsp 1 .5tsp Salt
    • 300ml 10⅛ fl oz Warm water
  2. Classic mode Step 2

    KNEAD

    Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer).

  3. Classic mode Step 3

    RISE

    Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size – about 1 hour depending on how warm your kitchen is.

  4. Classic mode Step 4

    SHAPE

    Knock back the dough by gently kneading just 5 times to get the air out. Cut the dough into 9 even pieces (use a weighing scales if you like). Roll each piece into a sausage shape and sit on two baking parchment-lined baking sheets – they’ll need room between them for growing.

  5. Classic mode Step 5

    PROVE

    Cover the dough again with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size again. Preheat your oven to 200°C (180°C fan, gas mark 6), with a roasting tin full of boiling water on the base of your oven.

  6. Classic mode Step 6

    BAKE

    Use a fork to beat together the honey and egg. Brush all over each bun, then sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Bake the rolls for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden. If you tap the base of a roll it should sound hollow. Cool on a wire rack.

    Ingredients for this step

    • 1tbsp 1tbsp Honey
    • 1 1 Egg(s) (free range)
    • 4tsp 4tsp Sesame seeds

    Why not try… Shaping these into rounds and making burger rolls instead.

    For a family party make a double batch of the dough and use two-thirds to make 8, frankfurter long rolls for the grown-ups, then one-third to make 8 mini sub rolls for the kids.
