Cheeky bread recipe

Easy lunch today bacon and cheese Panini's with fries and cinnamon buns for afters, I'll be posting the full recipe for the buns later but its done by using my own simple base dough.

The basic white bread mix is

500g plain flour, a lot of recipes call for strong bread flour but its not needed.
300-350ml warm water, depending on if you want a crusty roll or a more bap like roll, 300ml will give a crusty roll.
7g fast action yeast
Pinch salt
Pinch sugar
30ml oil

 In a mixer mix the dry ingredients using a dough hook first then add the oil and water, mix for 10 minutes this gives the flour time to absorb the water. Prove in a warm place until double the size. Knock back the dough to the size it was when you started, shape into 12 rolls, chuck them on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper and prove again until double the size. The roll should still feel firm, if the outer skin feels loose then the bread has over proved.
Bake on 150c for 15 mins or until the bread sounds hollow when tapped. Leave to cool for a while and enjoy!!! Easy and better than shop bought.
