Braided bread rolls | Kukskitchen

This is a recipe that I wrote down from the hairy bikers. I love most of their recipes. See how you like it.

Braided Bread rolls


500g/1lb 2oz unbleached strong white organic bread flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tsp salt
2 tsp dried yeast
30g butter or lard, softened
75ml milk, warmed
225ml warm water

oil, for greasing


  • With your fingers, mix the white flour, salt and dried yeast in a bowl.
  • Rub the softened butter or lard into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Mix the warm milk with the water.
  • Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and mix together with your hands until the dough is well combined. Bring the dough together into a ball.
  • Using floured hands, knead the dough on a clean, floured work surface for 20-25 minutes, or until the dough is elastic and smooth. If necessary add a little more warm water to loosen the dough.
  • Return the dough to the bowl and cover with a clean damp tea towel or cling film. Set aside for 1-1½ hours in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.
  • When the dough has risen, return it to a floured work surface and knock it back.
  • Separate the mixture into eight parts and roll each into a ball. Flatten each slightly with the palm of your hand and transfer the rolls to a baking tray, placing them close together. Cover the tray with cling film and set aside for another hour, or until the rolls have doubled in size again.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
  • When the rolls have expanded, dust them with the rice flour and transfer them to the oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
  • Alternatively you can divide the dough into four parts, roll each into long rods and braid them like you would your hair.

I found this video in you tube which demonstrates a four strand braided bread. Try this folks!
