Breaking bread with your family is as old as the hills – but how about baking your own bread together. It is surprisingly easy, and lots of fun to see your own bread rolls rise to the occasion.



500 g wholemeal bread flour

1.5 tsp Salt

1tsp unrefined golden caster sugar

15g unsalted Butter

1 Easy bake yeast sachet 7g

300ml Warm water

1 Egg glaze

Pumpkin seeds

Caraway seeds



Place flour and salt into a medium sized bowl, stir in sugar, rub in butter to form a soft dough;

Knead the dough on lightly floured surface until dough is smooth and elastic;

Separate the dough into 8-10 balls, or different shapes which can be fun if baking with little ones;

Place on baking tray, cover and leave in warm place until dough has risen and doubled in size – around 40 minutes;

Preheat oven to 230 C or gas mark 8;

Brush surface with beaten eggs;

Bake rolls for 15 minutes, then reduce loaf to 200 C or gas mark 6 for 10 minutes;

Rolls should be crisp and golden brown on the outside with a hollow interior.

Cool on wire rack and serve.
