The Parker House Roll, a bread roll originating in America and making it's way to the UK. Traditional Parker House Rolls are made by flattening the dough with a rolling pin and leaving to prove. Ours are light, fluffy and slightly sweet to make in your Bread-maker.  Please refer to your individual bread maker instructions with regards to baking time.

Method

  1. Put the dough ingredients into the bread maker baking pan in the order specified for your particular model (see manufacturer’s handbook).

  2. Set to the dough program and press start.

  3. Remove the dough from the machine and roll into a rectangle approximately 30x20 cm. Cut the dough lengthways to give four strips 5 cm wide.

  4. Divide each strip into 3 to make little rectangles of dough 10x5 cm. Cut the remaining three strips in the same way to give 12 equally sized rectangles.

  5. Brush each rectangle of dough with melted butter and fold in half. Place the rolls onto greased baking sheets so that each overlaps slightly with the one next to it.

  6. Cover with a tea towel and leave to prove until double in size. Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan 180°C, gas mark 6).

  7. Glaze the rolls with more melted butter and bake in for 15-20 minutes until golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped underneath. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

    Made these today and they taste delicious ,a nice little roll that will be nice with bacon or burgers .
    I used golden caster sugar instead of white sugar and semi skimmed milk instead of whole milk.
    And will definitely be making them again
