  • 1 cup traditional oats
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 115 grams butter (room temperature, chopped into cubes)
  • 1/3 cup sugar (75 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 teaspoons instant dried yeast
  • 2 cups plain flour (sifted)


  • Combine oats, boiling water, butter, sugar and salt into a bowl and stir to melt the butter and combine.
  • Set aside until lukewarm. This should only take 5 minutes.
  • Combine the lukewarm water and yeast and then add to mixture and stir to combine.
  • Add flour and mix until you have a soft dough. Cover and store in the fridge overnight.
  • Divide mixture into 8 parts (one for each roll). When you wish to bake off a roll, take the number of pieces you require from the fridge. Knead each roll a little and then shape into a small ball. Place onto a greased tray and allow to rise in a warm place for approximately 2 hours (or until nearly double in size).
  • Bake in a hot oven (200 degrees celsius, fan-forced) for 20 minutes.
  • Serve warm with butter.
