    • You beat me to it…it’s now posted and also on my recipe index for you. Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy having a look around. Let me know how you get on with the cake when you make it, I really love feedback.

    • Hi Linda. This is the recipe you asked for. I use it in my bread maker but it’s just as good by hand… I make rolls with it and they are just lovely so why don’t you try that first. The dough makes 10 rolls which I cook for approx 16 mins gas 5:

      360ml of water
      25g marg or butter
      2 teaspoons of sugar
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      550g of strong white flour (I use tesco’s or asda’s)
      1 1/4 teaspoon of fast action dried yeast

      I put it all in my breadmaker and let it do all the hard work kneading the dough and letting it prove.
      I take it out and split it into 10 rolls and place them on a greased baking sheet.
      I cover with a clean teatowel and leave for an hour to rise again
      Then I bake for approx. 16 mins or longer if you like them a bit crusty.

      Let me know how you get on.
      (By the way they freeze great)

No problem, had my orders for more tomorrow, I haven t got a bread maker so I melted the butter and put all ingredients in mixer, mixed with dough hook till it went stretchy, left it to rise then, knocked it back abit, split it into 10 put them on 2 baking sheets, left them to rise again for about an hour then put in oven and as I say they were lovely, thanks again, hear you soon
