Easy homemade bread rolls recipe

Have you ever baked bread rolls by yourself? There’s something extremely joyful, when the dough made by you rise, and turn into a beautiful, golden bread roll, filling your house with a smell of freshly baked bread. They taste best, when they’re still warm.

I don’t usually bake things like this. I do tray bakes, cakes, but bread and bread rolls I buy from the shop. A few days ago, in the afternoon, I was enjoying the sunshine, playing in the garden, with my children. Suddenly I realized, that I don’t have any bread rolls for them to eat for breakfast.
It was getting late, and there was no chance for me to pop out, and get some from our local shop. This is why I came up with the idea, of baking them myself.

I have to admit – my first attempt wasn’t great. I used plain flour, because it was the only one I had at home. Although the were quite nice, and looked like the rolls from the shop, they didn’t taste like them.
Yesterday while shopping for my essentials (since the lockdown, I am in the shop only once a week) I saw bread flour on the shelf, and decided to give it a go again.

The Bread rolls came out beautiful! They were puffy, golden, and spreading the amazing smell in the whole house. They tasted so good, my kids were eating them dry, without anything on, and so I had to bake some more the next day.

Now, I’d like to share this recipe with you…
