This is a weird but amazing recipe. It seems like totally the wrong way to make yeasted bread: not using bread flour, not using a mixer or breadmaker, not kneading the dough, not proofing the dough, not preheating the oven... But the results are some fantastic mini bread rolls!! If you like bread, you must give this super easy recipe a try!
The simple butter version and the garlic cheese version use the same dough, just a variation on the topping. This recipe makes a small batch of 12 mini rolls (or 8 if you prefer slightly bigger buns), but you can easily double it.
All details and step-by-step guide are in the video above. Please check it out. Or see the written instructions below....

Ingredients for the dough:
For the toppings:
You also need: a mixing bowl, a spoon or two, some vegetable oil, a metal baking tray, non stick parchment paper, an oven-safe ramekin or bowl, some water.
TO MAKE THE DOUGH:
FOR THE BUTTER TOP VERSION:
FOR THE GARLIC CHEESE VERSION:
Place the dough balls on the middle shelf of a *not preheated* oven. On the bottom shelf, place a small ramekin or any other oven-safe vessel containing 2cm of water.
Turn the oven on to 220 C (430 F) or 200 C (400 F) for a fan oven.
Baking time varies depending on your oven. I suggestion however long for your oven to come up to temperature PLUS 8-12 minutes. For mine, they take 20 minutes (my oven reaches temperature in about 9 minutes, and I bake for 11 minutes more). But if your oven takes longer to reach 220/200, maybe you won't need as much as 8-12 after that, so just look for golden-brownness...
And they're ready! They're best eaten hot and fresh out of the oven. They'll become a bit dry the next day.
Take a look at the video, that may help clarify some of the steps. I hope you give this easy recipe a try.
