Perfect for beginners, our Sweet and Soft Burger Rolls are light and fluffy and can be made in just six steps using Allinson's sweet dough. Combine with our Hot Dog Rolls, made with Allinson's white dough and you’ve got yourself a BBQ (no guarantees on the weather, mind).


  1. MIX Bring the milk to the boil, then remove from the heat and add the butter. Leave to cool until it reaches hand temperature. Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a big bowl. Mix the milk and the beaten egg into the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon.

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

  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 – up to 2 hours depending on how warm your kitchen is.

  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 ball and sit on two flour-dusted baking sheets – they’ll need room between them for growing.

  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. BAKE Use a fork to beat together the remaining egg and honey. Brush all over each bun, then sprinkle with the seeds. Bake the rolls for 18-20 minutes or until golden. If you tap the base of a roll it should sound hollow. Cool on a wire rack.

    Great recipe but I’m glad I halved the sugar (and it could probably be reduced further) - it would have been far too sweet with the quantity recommended.

    Also really nice toasted with eggs Benedict!

    Made lovely soft buns but too sweet for us with all that sugar though - is it a mistake ?
