Makes 8 buns
- 550g (3½ cups) flour
- ½ cup (70g) Taupo Pure® milk powder
- 1¾ tsp (7g) dried yeast
- 1¾ cup (400ml) warm water

- Start the mixer on low and stream in the yeast and water.
- As the mixture combines set the timer for 7 minutes.
- The mixture will become smooth. It may appear wet. It needs to wrap around the dough hook but still be like a wet ball.
- Spray a clean bowl with olive oil. Tip the dough into the clean bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
- Allow to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
- Tip out the dough onto a counter top, sprinkled with flour.
- Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces. Mould each piece of dough into balls with your hands.
- Heat the oven to 180°C (350°F, or Gas Mark 4) Fan Bake.
- Once the oven has reached temperature, bake the rolls for 25 minutes, until golden and crispy.
- Eat whilst still warm.
- If you want to keep the buns, wrap and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days. Then reheat in the oven, wrapped in foil.
- You can also knead the mixture by hand. Use the palm of your hand to knead until the dough is super smooth and elastic. It should not be too dry.
