  1. Mix the flours a large bowl with the salt and yeast. Make a large well in the centre. Spoon in the oil and pour in almost all the water.
  2. Mix the oil and water with a large wooden spoon until the dough is soft, but not sticky. If it's too dry, add a little more water.
  3. Turn the dough on a lightly floured surface to knead. Rub it backwards and forwards with too hands in a scrubbing motion.
  4. Shape the dough into a ball and give it a quarter turn in one direction. Start the kneading again.
  5. Keep kneading and turning for 8 to 10 minutes until you have a smooth, springy dough. Put it back in the mixing bowl.
  6. Tear off a large sheet of microwave quality clingfilm to cover the bowl, then cover the bowl with it, oiled side down.
  7. Leave the dough in a warm place for at least an hour until it has doubled in size and feels spongy.
  8. Punch the dough down. Knead and turn again as you did before, but only for a minute or two.
  9. Cut the dough into 16 pieces. Use some to make cottage rolls, following th4e instructions at the top of the page.
  10. Now try following the instructions to make hedgehog rolls. Preheat the oven to 200oC.
  11. Leave the rolls to double in size on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Cover with the clingfilm, but remove it for baking.
  12. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes near the top of the oven until golden. Remove with oven gloves. Cool on a wire rack.

Cottage rolls

Pull a quarter off each piece and roll both bits into balls. Press the smaller on top and make a whole through the middle with the handle of a wooden spoon.


Shape the dough into balls. Pull one end out to make a snout. Stick currants on for eyes. Use small scissors to snip the top into peaks.
