homemade lunch rolls with character!
My mum showed me how to do this when me and my brothers were kids. Recently my boyfriend and I are trying to do more home-cooking and I remembered these and gave them a go!
You can use your own bread recipe, I usually make mine up a bit as I go, but I've included here a nice basic recipe as written here

flour = 11oz, yeast = 0.3oz (just one small singe portion packet, I guess it's around 1 tbsp), water = 7.6 US fluid ounces. I hope those are right, I just used an online converter to figure them out. I never mess with the imperial system Tongue But like I say, I only put that recipe as a guide, if you have your own bread recipe already then go for it! x

So cute!!! >.<
Would you happen to know what the flour, yeast, and water measurements are in the imperial system (U.S.)? I'm from the U.S, so I don't usually mess around with the metric system... ^_^;
