The sweet rolls taste delicious with cheese, jam, Nutella, or sliced meat, like ham or salami for that matter. Personally, we use the  sweet rolls at family get-togethers, and they are always a big hit.

This recipe is Vegan friendly.

Put hand warm water and all other ingredients apart from the Vegetable oil in a bowl on an electric mixer and mix for a couple of minutes before you add the Vegetable oil.

Then mix for another 8 minutes, need to mix about 10 - 12 minutes all up.

Dust a bit of flour on your kitchen bench and empty the dough out on your bench and round the dough up into a ball. Cover the dough with a tea towel and let rest for 10-15 minutes.

 Scale the homemade sweet rolls at 60g and shape into balls and put on oven trays with baking paper or a silicone mat. On a normal oven tray, you should be able to fit 8 – 9 sweet rolls.

This is a mini bun you just flatten a bit and push down in the center when you put the dough on the baking tray.

When they are ready to go in the oven you brush them with egg wash and push them down in the middle again and put a bit of custard in the hole you have made in the bun, and you can put a couple of chocolate drops on top of the custard.

After they are baked and have cooled down you can give them a bit of icing, made from icing sugar and hot water.
