Sometimes, there is just nothing nicer than eating fresh, still warm, home baked bread rolls, and these ones in particular are fabulous. And if you have a breadmachine, all the hard work is done for you 🙂
What you need:
310ml water
30g chopped butter
1 tsp salt
3 tbsps honey
600g wholemeal flour
2 tsp dried yeast
What you need to do:
1. Add the ingredients in the order recommended for your machine (with mine, it’s the wet ones first, then the dry on top).
2. Use the dough setting and set the machine going to work it’s magic.
3. Once the dough is ready, divide it into 16 equal pieces. Lightly knead each one and shape into rounds.
4. Place onto a lightly greased tray and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
***If you would like extra fluffy bread, you can cover the rolls after placing them on the tray in cling film or plastic wrap, and leave in a warm place for about an hour, and they will double in size. Baking time is the same. But if you are impatient like me and my family, you can bake them as soon as the dough is made, and they are still super yummy.***

After spending a week on a French Cake Break with Rhu Strand from Pimp my Cake with Mama Rhu, and being treated to the most amazing cooking, I took inspiration from one of the local delicacies that we were treated to and added a bit of a twist. The results, I can assured you, are amazeballs!
Ingredients you will need:
(this is what I used, you might choose slightly different quantities)
1 part baked French baguette
1 block of Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference, Kidderton Ash Goats’ Cheese, thinly sliced
About 7/8 strawberries, depending on their size, thinly sliced
A drizzle of Sainsbury’s runny honey
About 5 fresh basil leaves, torn
What to do:
1. Slice the baguette into around 15 slices.
2. Place them on a baking tray and bake at 180 degrees for 5 minutes.
3. Transfer to a grill, and place a thin slice of goats cheese on the toasted bread, followed by one or two slices of strawberries.
4. Place under the grill for a few minutes until the cheese starts to melt.
5. Transfer to a serving dish and while still warm, drizzle honey over the crostini.
6. Sprinkle the torn basil leaves over the top, and serve.
An easy peasy, whipped up in under ten minutes treat 🙂
