Baps, rolls or buns

Whatever you call them where you live, they are easy enough to make




Large white floury ones sell for around 65p for 4 in the supermarkets. The cost for 4 large home made is around 30p + cooking. So, as long as you put them in when you are cooking something else, that's half the price.

The recipe I use comes from an issue of The Penny Pincher Paper (more about that HERE) - but with alterations




(Edited in to say I use strong bread flour) I don't use as much yeast,salt,sugar or butter as the recipe, and I use my Kenwood chef with it's dough hook to mix,but do make sure the dough is really soft and when shaping into rolls I try not to handle too much. I don't brush the tops with anything but do sprinkle flour.

I've got a newly concocted  recipe for Veggie Burgers which go rather well in these rolls. I'll put that on here sometime soon.

Back Soon

  1. They look great, I shall give it a go. Bread-making is definitely my favourite form of baking though I still struggle to achieve bread which is anything like as good as that which my mother used to make so effortlessly!

  2. They look nice Sue, I might give this recipe a try. I regularly make bread but can't seem to manage soft rolls.

  5. I bet they smell amazing. I should really start bread making soon. I'm trying to avoid at the moment to help with weightloss. As soon as I see and smell it, I crumble and give in. 30p is a bargain for good wholesome food.

  6. Up here they're known as barm cakes/barms or batch!
    Where our daughter in law is originally from, they even serve 'pie barms'! Yes, it is what it sounds like, a pie served in a buttered bap! I've never tried one, (neither has daughter in law), and never wish to, the very thought makes me feel a little queasy!
    I didn't bother making my own as we had a local baker who made the most wonderful 'bread rolls' at £1-10 per dozen! Unfortunately his building was badly damaged in an explosion whch happened a distance away but the shockwave destroyed his roof and shop frontage.
    He's not trading again yet, so at the moment I'm back to baking my own!
    Your recipe is slightly different to my usual one, so I shall give it a try this weekend when we're 'grandchild free'!
    It's such a joy looking after LJ three full days a week, but I find I'm spending my days playing and everyting else takes a back seat!
    He won't be little for long though, he turned a year old last weekend, so we're both making the most of it while we get the chance! I've not chased a football so far in twenty nine years!

  14. Nothing better than homemade bread - smell and taste wise. I usually call them muffins although that name should probably only really be given to the genuine oven bottoms which are delicious. xx

  17. I hope to give those buns a try! They sure look good. For a short time when I was first married a lady would come around and my neighbors would gather and she would teach us how to cook things we weren't sure of and such. I wish they still had that service. I still have the recipes and hints she would hand out. Being married now 47 years I have gathered many books on homemaking and my own hints! :) Like you, we chose to live frugally in order to be secure. Our children followed our example and have the peace that brings too. I was happy to find your site. It is encouraging. I will keep your husband in prayer. Sarah
