That looks good Cookie.  I won't let my GD see it, she is a nutellaaholic :D :D
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

FKM,  plain white rolls,  no fuss.

520g white flour
2 teasp. dried yeast.
300mls. warm water
1 teasp. each of sugar and salt

Place in bowl, knead for 4 mins
Leave in bowl until double
Form into rolls or loaf, spray with water
Leave to rise to double
Bake in pre heated oven, 210c. for 20 mins

The whole process will take less than 2 hours


To freeze bread.
When cool , wrap bread in foil and freeze.
If a loaf, it can be sliced when cool, and frozen with or without baking paper between slices.
Remove slices as required.
For rolls and bread sticks.....
Place in hot oven,  still in foil ,  or unwrap and quickly place under running water and then place in hot oven.   This can be done to frozen or thawed bread sticks or rolls. 
It is best not to refresh bread in microwave as it changes the texture of the bread.

If you know you are going to freeze bread sticks or rolls,  it is best to under cook them by 5/10 mins,  depending on size .
When I bake a loaf,  I usually cut it in 1/2 and wrap one 1/2 in foil and freeze and store the other 1/2 in a paper or plastic bag to be used over the following days.




First time making this. I suck at bread. After it kneaded it looked like little balls. Normal??

Did you knead it for the full 4 minutes? This recipe is like little balls for a while but you just keep kneading.
By the way welcome to the forum.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

No, it should have been beautiful and smooth. Was your amount of water 300ml? It sounds as though the dough was dry. What sort of flour did you use?  Different flours absorb different amounts of water.

Sounds like not enough water. Look through the hole in lid after 2 minutes, and if the dough is not clumping together add more water,
. A tablespoon at a time.
During summer or if using wholemeal flour I add at least 2 tablespoons more water.
You may then need to knead for an extra minute.
It is better to have a wetter dough than a too dry one.
Good luck musicalmummy.
