- 300g (10oz) strong white flour
- 250g (8oz) strong wholemeal flour
- 150g (5oz) med oatmeal
- 1 level tsp salt
- 30g (1oz) butter, cut into small cubes
- 7g sachet easy-bake yeast
- 3 tbs runny honey
- 150ml (¼ pint) plain yogurt
- 1 tbs oatmeal, to sprinkle
- 21cm (8½in) flan tin, greased
- Put both the white and wholemeal flours into a large bowl and add the oatmeal and salt.
- Add the butter to the bowl. Use your fingertips to rub it into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle in the yeast.
- Pour in the honey, yogurt and 250-300ml (8-10fl oz) warm water. Mix together with your hands until the dough forms a ball.
- Tip the dough on to a lightly floured surface and then stretch and knead (punch) it for 10 mins, until it’s smooth and elastic.
- Cut into 12 equal-sized pieces, then shape each piece into a smooth, even ball. Arrange in the flan tin. Sprinkle with the extra oatmeal. Cover dough loosely with oiled cling film and leave in a warm place until doubled in size, about 30 mins.
- Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Remove the cling film and put the tin in the oven. Bake for 25-30 mins, until the rolls are golden on top and firm at the base. Remove from the oven and put the tin on a heatproof stand to cool. Serve rolls with butter.
