This is an authentic wartime recipe for Baking Powder Milk Rolls which I found in “Health for All – Wartime Recipes” by Margaret Y. Brady.
I had run out of bread and wanted bread quickly without going to the shops OR spending hours making, proving and baking a loaf! This recipe took about 10 minutes to make then about 20 or so minutes to cook so 30 minutes from beginning to end! Oh and the rolls worked out as costing 4p each for the ingredients BUT more in energy! I did use the hot oven to bake potatoes too so don’t feel quite so guilty!
- 8 oz self-raising flour ( or 8 oz of plain flour and 1.5 tsp baking powder )
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 pint of milk (I used oat milk)
Mix ingredients together, gently knead on a floured board, divide into 4, and make 4 rolls, place in moderate oven at 180C – 200C for 20-30 minutes. Set aside to cool before serving.
This made 4 rolls.
