500gms T55 white flour

35gms unsalted butter diced

35gms caster sugar

10gms salt

7gm good quality dried active yeast

300mls of warm water - temp between 32c and 36c


Place salt at bottom of mixing bowl, put flour then butter, yeast and sugar ontop. Add 3/4 of water. Mix with dough hook on medium or by hand and slowly add remainder of water. Mix for 6 -7 mins until dough is smooth and glossy. Place in lightly oiled bowl and cover, leave to prove until doubled in volume. Turn dough out onto floured surface and cut into 12. Shape into dough balls and then lightly roll into thick rounds, half bap size. Place 6 rounds to a baking tray leaving plenty of space for rise. Place trays into proving bag for 55mins or until doubled in size. Set oven to gas 7. Remove baps from proving bag. Sprinkle baps lightly with flour and bake in middle of pre-heated oven for 9-11 minutes, turn tray halfway through baking for even colouring. Cool then enjoy!

Brilliant Recipe

Really enjoyed these, wondering can you make 6 larger baps and how long would you bake for in that case ?

RE: Brilliant Recipe

Thank you for your lovely feedback, i'm delighted that you enjoyed them. Yes, you can easily make 6 large baps from exactly the same quantity of dough or even 2 white loaves (I use 2 x 1lb loaf tins and just split the recipe) I'd lower the oven temp to gas 5-6 for the larger rolls and bake them for 4-5 minutes longer. If the rolls are darkening too quickly lay a sheet of tinfoil over them. Gas 5 for the 2 white loaves, for 20 to 25 mins. Pop the loaves out of the tins near the end of baking to colour the bases of the loaves.You can also add two tablespoons of milk powder at the start of mixing the dough - exactly the same dough quantity - to make 14 x finger rolls for hot dogs, but you'll need a hot dog bun pan. Hope all this helps. Happy baking!
