  1. Step 1:


    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.

  2. 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. Step 3:


    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. 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. Step 5:


    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. Step 6:


    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.

  7. Step 7:

    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.
