Servings 18 rolls


  • 320 ml water
  • 500 grams strong white bread flour
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 25 grams S&P flour booster
  • 2-3 teaspoons S&P even-rise dried yeast
  • 1.5 tablespoons S&P dough creamer


  • To make dough in the bread machine: Remove the pan from the bread machine (usually by giving it a twist). Pour in the water. Sprinkle on the flour making sure that it covers the water. Add the salt, sugar, butter, flour booster and dough creamer in separate corners of the bread pan. Make a small indent in the center of the flour, but not down as far as the liquid, and add the yeast.
  • Place the pan back in the bread machine and set to the dough setting and press start. When the machine cycle has finished, remove the dough from the machine. Place on a lightly floured surface, knock back gently.
  • Shape the dough into rolls, or 2 medium size loaves or 1 large loaf and put into a greased baking tin.
  • If making rolls, cut off small pieces of the desired size of your rolls. To get perfect even rolls it is best to weigh each piece and a guideline is 60g for an average roll, or smaller if you want small dinner rolls. Shape the pieces by kneading into a small ball, with a smooth top.
  • Leave to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 160C. When the dough has risen enough, bake for 20 minutes for rolls or 25 minutes for a loaf. The bread should be well risen and slightly golden on top.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes in the tin. Then remove from the tin and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
