If you have 1 hour, (actually, I reckon less than 45mins) you can make these delicious rolls and be eating them within the hour!

They are delicious just warm from the oven. You could serve them up for tea tonight if you like.

You will need


450g White bread flour

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tablespoon caster sugar

2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

50g butter – cut into cubes

100g mixed seeds – such as linseeds, poppyseed, chia seeds etc

250-350ml milk

1 tablespoon lemon juice.


  1. Set oven to 190c
  2. place 1 tablespoon lemon juice into the milk (measure out the full amount (you will probably not use it all…)
  3. sieve the flour and bicarbonate of soda and salt into large bowl
  4. rub butter into flour
  5. stir in the sugar
  6. stir in milk and lemon juice  but be careful to just use enough to create a soft but not sticky dough
  7. bring together quickly into 8 rounds of around 100g each
  8. shape into round balls and using a floured wooden spoon handle – make deep crosses in the top of each roll. dust with flour and or extra seeds.
  9. Bake for 20-25mins
  10. eat whilst still warm. Serve with your favourite soup or some lovely paté or cheese.
