  • 4 cups all purpose flour 500 grams
  • 7 grams active dry yeast 2 teaspoons
  • 10 grams salt 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • 5 grams unsalted butter 1 teaspoon
  • 7 grams honey 1 teaspoon optional
  • 320 grams of water lukewarm (11/3 cup)


  • Add the dry active yeast into a small bowl with some of the lukewarm water and stir to dissolve. Let it sit for about 3-5 minutes or until you notice some bubbles at the surface.
  • Combine the flour and salt into a medium size bowl and whisk together. Create a well in the middle and add the yeast, honey, and water.
  • Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix all the ingredients together until the water is absorbed by the flour and a shaggy mass is achieved.
  • Scrape the side of the bowl, then coat the sides and bottom with some oil or dust with flour.
  • Place a plastic cover or cloth over the bowl and allow the dough to rest for 4 hours. Alternatively, you can place it overnight in the refrigerator and use the dough the next day.
  • Line two flat baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.
  • Turn the dough over on a working surface dusted with flour.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal parts or scale at 70 grams each.
  • Gently shape each dough piece into a round roll. Place onto line baking tray spacing each roll about 3-4 inches.
  • Sprinkle some flour onto the rolls and cover with plastic or cloth. Allow the buns to proof in a warm place for about 45-60 minutes or until they have doubled in size.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (390°F) once you notice the rolls are almost fully proofed.
  • Lightly score the top of the rolls with a serrated knife to give them an artisan bakery look.
  • If you are not comfortable scoring dough then skip this step.
  • Bake the bread rolls for 16-18 minutes or until golden light brown in color.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack and serve warm.
  • Enjoy your no-knead crusty bread rolls.
