    Default Bread Machine - Soft White Rolls

    Does anyone have a good recipe for soft white rolls?

    I'm working on my own recipe but there's only so many rolls you can eat in a day so progress is slow.

    The recipe I started from was this;

    • Water - 250ml
    • Egg - 1 Medium
    • Margarine - 2 Tablespoons
    • Salt - tsp
    • Sugar - cup
    • Strong plain flour - 520g (3 cups)
    • Yeast - 2 tsp
    • Topping Margarine, melted
    1. Put all ingredients in bread machine on pizza dough setting.
    2. Divide dough in to 15 and shape each piece in to a ball.
    3. Allow to rise for 30 minutes
    4. Brush with margarine
    5. Bake for 15 mins (180c/Gas 4) or until golden brown.


    and I've adapted it to this;

    • Water - 250ml
    • NoEgg - 2 tsp
    • Olive oil - 30g
    • Salt - tsp (or tsp msg)
    • Sugar - ⅛ cup
    • Strong plain flour - 520g (3 cups)
    • Yeast - 2 tsp
    • Topping Water
    1. Put all ingredients in bread machine on pizza dough setting.
    2. Divide dough in to 8 and shape each piece in to a ball.
    3. Allow to rise for 30 minutes
    4. Brush with water
    5. Bake for 15 mins (180c/Gas 4) or until golden brown.


    I cut the sugar in half because they were far too sweet, replaced the egg for noegg for obvious reasons. Switched the margarine for oil because I prefer to use an ingredient like oil than a product like marg. Tried swapping the salt for msg for extra flavour, it didn't make a noticable difference but I suppose it means less sodium at least. The melted margarine to brush on top is just a waste as far as I can see, brushing on water makes them go golden just as well. I also reduced the number of rolls, because I wanted them bigger.

    They're okay, I'd like them to have more flavour though. I tried using 1tsp of salt but that was too much and killed the yeast, I might try 1tsp msg instead to see if that works any better. I've also now run out of Noegg so I need an alternative, any suggestions?

    Egg replacer, in bread?

    Bread doesn't have egg in it!

    Msg twinkle, I know she has a good recipe.

    It's not my idea, I was just working from a recipe that came with the bread machine.

    As it happens, I have some rising right now that I made without any egg replacer since I didn't have any (doesn't everyone make bread at 4am?)

    Cool - they look really good.

    Some people (particularly those who shop in M&S) are absolutely obsessed with animal products, living under the wartime pretense that eggs and butter are some how classed as luxury items, believing that their addition to food stuffs that really don't need them is somehow a good thing. Whilst it's a free country, it makes it annoying for those of us who choose not to consume them. My parents add milk powder to their bread machine loaves, but admit they can't tell the difference without.......so why continue to use it?

    Glad they turned out well.

    Egg in bread does alter the character a bit though, doesn't it? Brioche etc tasted different from ordinary bread. But I doubt if one egg in that amount of flour would make much difference. I suppose you could try adding soy flour, and saffron if you want it yellow.
