Servings 6 rolls
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Resting Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 3 hours 5 minutes


  • 500 g bread flour or all purpose flour
  • 7 g dry yeast
  • 375 ml warm water
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar


  • In a medium bowl, mix the dry yeast and warm water and let rest for 5 minutes to activate the yeast.
  • In a large bowl, add the flour, salt and sugar, then mix well to combine. Make a little well in the center and add the yeast water mixture.
  • Use a wooden spoon or spatula to mix everything until a dough starts to form.
  • Transfer the dough onto a floured flat surface and start to knead the dough. You should knead the dough for at least 10–15mins or until it becomes smooth and fairly elastic.
  • Lightly flour a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and cover with a tea towel or cling wrap. Let the dough rest for at least 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, gently knead the dough for another 5 minutes and portion into 6 equal balls.
  • Transfer on a oven tray covered with baking/grease paper and use a knife to score a line in the middle of the roll.
  • Dust some flour over the bread rolls, cover with a tea towel and let rest again for 15–30mins.
  • In the meantime, pre-heat your oven to 230°C/450°F.
  • Bake the bread rolls in the oven for 12–15 mins.
