Oregano knotted rolls


I’ll admit I am a little excited as my first time baking bread tasted pretty damn delicious! Bread in my opinion is one of the few baked foods that many people steer clear of – I mean why would an average home cook like myself master bread when I can just go down to the local bakery?  It was surprisingly simple to make, beautifully soft on the inside, very tasty and the perfect accompaniment to my hot winters soup. Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread wafting out of the oven! Besides who doesn’t love food that is acceptable to eat at any time of the day…


  • 2 cups flour
  • 11g dried yeast
  • 1 tbl oregano
  • 3 tbl brown sugar
  • 3 pinches salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 tbl olive oil

Makes 4 rolls


Sift the flour and mix in with the other dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then stir in the water, milk and egg. Mix until a soft dough is formed and then rest in an oiled bowl with a tea towel covering for an hour.

Once the dough has rested break it evenly into eight balls. Roll out each ball of dough to form long sausage like shapes. Hold two dough pieces at the top and wrap one around the other, then join the ends to tie into a knot.

Place the dough on a baking tray in a preheated oven at 200 degrees, and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cooked.

Happy baking, love Jem x
