Home made bread rolls
1/2 cup water, warm
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup water, warm
In a bowl, whisk 1/2 cup of warm water with yeast & 1 teaspoon of sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy a bubbly.
Pour the yeast & water mix into the bowl of a food processor, add all the dry ingredients. Process for around 30 seconds.
While the motor is running, pour the extra 1 cup of warm water down the chute.
Once the dough has come together, process for another minute.
Check to see if the dough is sticky (make sure to unplug the food processor when opening the lid!!). Mine was too sticky.
If it is then add a little more flour. I added 1/4 of a cup of Plain flour. You don't want it to dry though. There should be a little tackiness to the dough but not sticky.
Turn it out onto a floured bench & knead for 1 minute.
Divide the dough into 8 pieces for small bread rolls or 6 pieces for large bread rolls. I made small ones because the girls would rather 2 small burgers than 1 too large to handle burgers!!
Place the balls of dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Place in a warm place, covered with a tea towel for 40 minutes or until doubled in size.
Pre heat oven to 180 degrees. Place a shallow tray of water on the bottom shelf, this stops the tops of the rolls from going to hard.
Cook the bread rolls for around 20 minutes or until the tops start to go golden. My chickadees like their breadrolls to be soft so I took mine out of the oven before they got too brown. If you want them really brown on top, brush them with a little milk before cooking.
Well, I am off to go & make some hamburger patties, pick some lettuce & tomatoes from the veggie patch & make some yummy hamburger sauce. Enjoy!
