In case you don’t have self-raising flour, you can easily make your own. You will need all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.

Simply add one teaspoon of baking powder to 1 cup of flour. And, there you have it: self-raising flour.

Now for the recipe, all you have to do is mix the flour with the yogurt (in my opinion Greek yogurt is the best), lightly knead it for about 2 minutes, and let the dough rest for 15 to 20 minutes.

Once the dough has some resting time, cut the dough into 7 or 8 pieces and roll them into small balls.

To make the rolls look and taste a bit fancier, I like to brush the bread rolls with some egg wash and sprinkle on some poppy seeds.

I do love the taste of poppy seeds. In my opinion, it also looks pretty as well.

I like to bake my white bread rolls on a pizza tray. Of course, you can also use a baking sheet.

Extra tip: to prevent the rolls from sticking to the tray, I either sprinkle the baking tray with flour or line it with baking paper.

Preheat the oven to 200 Degrees Celcius (fan bake) = 400 Degrees Fahrenheit (convection) and bake for at least 15 minutes.

The result is amazing – beautiful crispy brown white bread rolls on the outside and soft on the inside.

I recommend letting the bread rolls cool down for around 15 minutes before serving them.

If you have any leftovers the following day, brush the rolls with some water and reheat them in the oven.

Otherwise, putting any leftover rolls into the freezer is another great option.

  • With a wooden spoon, mix it all together.
  • If the mixture is to dry, add a bit more yogurt.

  • Sprinkle with poppy seeds or coarse salt.
    1 tbsp poppy seeds – optional
