Very Easy


- 3 cups plain flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoons caster sugar
- 1 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise dried yeast
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup lukewarm milk
- 1 egg

For the topping:
- 2 tablespoons milk
- poppy seeds and sesame seeds (optional)


Step 1

Sift the flour and salt in a large bowl and stir in the sugar and yeast. Add the butter and rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Step 2

Make a well in the centre. Add the milk and egg and knead well to get a smooth and elastic dough.

Step 3

Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Step 4

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface, knock down (punch down) and knead for 2-3 minutes.

Step 5

Divide the dough into 11-12 equal pieces and shape into knots or braids. Place the rolls on baking sheets spacing them well apart.

Step 6

Cover the rolls with lightly oiled cling film and leave to rise in a warm place or until doubled in bulk.

Step 7

Preheat oven to 220C. Brush the rolls with milk and sprinkle the sesame/ poppy seeds.

Step 8

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
