...baking bread. Its not something I do often but when I do its so satisfying.
Why bother you ask?
..hey I agree! there is some good bread to be bought and loads of great artisan bakers out there
but if you have the time
and the patience, I recommend you give these bread rolls a go.
They turned out perfect, so perfect that we ate them in one go!!
Straight out of the hot oven with lots of butter!
