Good, reliable, failsafe, everyday, homemade from-scratch fluffy white bread rolls, soft as a cloud and better than shop-bought. Enjoy!



  • 300ml warm water
  • 7g dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 500g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large teaspoon bread improver


  1. Mix everything together and knead for about 10 minutes. You can also knead it in your mixer fitted with a dough hook, or in your breadmaker.
  2. Cover the bowl and leave in a warm place to rise for about an hour, or until doubled in size.
  3. Punch down, and divide that dough into as many rolls as you want – I can get up to 16 small rolls with this amount of dough – and arrange them on your tray about an inch from each other and let them rise again for about 45 minutes (that second rise is everything).
  4. After your dough loaves have had a second rise, bake at 200C for about 20 minutes or until they’re golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
