I used to have a bread machine, but I only used it once before giving it to a friend, because for me the beauty of homemade bread is in the making of it, and the satisfaction I draw from seeing the ingredients transformed into a big pillowy loaf. For those of you who shy away from making bread by hand for fear of it being time-consuming, these rolls may change your mind: quick homemade bread at its best.
If you’re making your own buttermilk, put the milk and lemon juice in a jug and allow it to sit for 20 minutes.
When the dough has come together, turn it out onto a floured surface and gently flatten the dough with your hands or a rolling pin until it is about 2.5cm thick. Sprinkle a baking sheet with a little flour. Using a knife or cutter, cut out sixteen rolls from the dough and place them onto the dusted baking sheet as you go.
Brush the rolls with egg wash or milk if you fancy a shiny glazed look and then
