Scottish Baps are very popular for breakfast with bacon on sausage in and they are very soft and floury.

    I make bread all the time and have some favourites but these were just WOW!!!

    I changed a few things in the recipe as I mistakenly assumed a few things when I got started, but I'm very pleased to say that it didn't matter. They are absolutely fabulous! The softest bread rolls I've ever made and we all loved them!!

    I warmed the butter along with the milk and water for 3 minutes at 37 degrees speed 1. Then I added the yeast and waited for a minute or two and then added the rest of the ingredients directly on top, plus 1 tsp of vitamin c powder. I combined it for 15seconds or so on speed 3.5, then left the mix in the bowl for an hour or so to rise. After it had doubled in size I shaped in to 12 rolls and then followed the instructions in the recipe.

    They came out absolutely perfectly! I will definitely be doing these again and sharing the recipe with others!! Thank you!

    Is the dough really really sticky and soft?  Mine was so soft so I couldn't really knead or shape it
