About this recipe:
This is a basic recipe for a yeast dough: Make it into rolls, a base for focaccia or simply a loaf. Also perfect for making baps.

2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 dessertspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
320g (11 oz) plain flour

2 hr 25 min
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Lightly grease two baking trays.
In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the sugar, salt, oil and 125g of flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 70g at a time, beating well after each addition.
When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes.
Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 165 C / Gas mark 3.
Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and form into rolls. Place the rolls on prepared baking trays. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool.
cut the salt to a teaspoon, changed the flour to strong white bread flour and allowed to rise for 3.5hrs. perfect

Great recipe, a little less salt as everyone else has said and bread flour instead plain flour, they raised wonderfully (couldnt believe how well) and tasted lovely, next time with a little less salt they will be perfect
