For those of you in America, I used 4 cups of flour, and 1 stick of butter. These rolls were incredibly soft and rose very well! I didn't get the buttery flavor that the other people mentioned though. My husband thought they were a little on the bland side, but he still gobbled them up with his soup. We made them as a side to Recipe #443141. The next time I make these I might add a little butter extract and a pinch of garlic salt. Thanks Noo!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the first six ingredients into your machine according to manufacturer’s instructions. Set to dough and start.
  2. When the dough is ready, turn it out onto a floured surface and knead and shape it into a rough 8" square.
  3. Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the seeds. Take a sharp knife and cut the dough into 16 squares (of course you could shape by hand!).
  4. Transfer the rolls to a baking tray and leave them for 30 minutes to rise.
  5. Preheat the oven to Gas 5/375°F/190°C.
  6. After the 30 minutes is up, bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes.
