Recipe 40 Mary Berry's Dinner Roll Recipe

Who doesn't love the smell of baking? It's the perfect way to fill an empty day especially if it is dull and rainy outside. Not only does the kneading give your arms a great workout, it is also so rewarding to eat bread that you have made from scratch. I used 'Mary Berry's Complete Cookbook' Dinner rolls recipe.

Ingredients (makes 18)
500g strong white flour
1 tsp salt
7g fast-action dried yeast
about 350ml lukewarm water
sunflower oil for greasing.

1. Put the flour in a large bowl, then stir in the salt and yeast. Make a well in the middle and pour in enough water to make a soft, sticky dough.

2. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface into smooth and elastic. Shape into a round and place in a lightly oiled large bowl. Cover with cling film and leave to rise in a warm place for 1-1.5 hours or until doubled in size.

3. Lightly oil 2-3 baking trays. Divide the dough into 18 balls created a ball shape. Arrange on the trays, leaving room for expansion. Cover loosely with cling film and leave to rise for 20 minutes or until double in size.

4. Bake in a preheated oven at 190C for 20mins or until golden. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

 My rolls didn't come out the size I was hoping, but my yeast had been opened a while so may not have been as effective. Saying that, they were really tasty and nice and light on the inside. I served mine straight from the oven with some butter and were perfect with a wintery bowl of soup.
