Makes: 9 rolls
  • 500 g (16 oz) white bread flour (or AP flour)
  • 300 g (10 fl oz) buttermilk
  • 30 g (1 oz) melted butter
  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp dried yeast
  • 2 tsp salt
  1. Add the yeast and the sugar to the buttermilk. Mix well and leave for 10 minutes.
  2. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the milk/yeast/sugar and the melted butter. Mix to a soft and slightly tacky dough.
  3. Knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth.
  4. Place the dough in a lightly-greased bowl, cover and leave in a warm place to allow the dough to double in size.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a surface and knock back. Divide the dough into 9 equal pieces.
  6. For each piece of dough, knead well in your hands and shape into a smooth ball (see video). Place on a lightly-greased baking tray.
  7. Place the tray with the rolls in a large plastic bag and leave in a warm place for about 40 minutes.
  8. Bake at 190°C/375°F fan oven, 220°C/430°F conventional oven for 12-15 minutes until nicely browned.
  9. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
These rolls don't need glazing at all as the buttermilk helps give them a lovely brown colour.
