Quick and Easy Bread Rolls

These are actually quick (made and cooked from scratch in a hour) and surprisingly easy to make.  A friend of mine gave me the recipe and having never made bread without the help of a bread maker I was very apprehensive but it's worth giving it a try as it worked for me!

2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 eggs
1 tsp salt
Up to 500g strong white bread flour
1) In a mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water.
2) Add oil and sugar and leave for 5 minutes.
3) Add the egg and salt.
4) Then add the flour, while stirring the mixture until it knits together to form a soft dough.
5) Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes.
6) Divide into 12 pieces and shape each into a ball.
7) Place balls onto greased baking sheets, ensure plenty of space around each.
8) Cover with a clean tea towel and allow to rise for 30 minutes.
9) Bake at 220 degrees for 8 - 12 minutes (until golden brown).
10) Remove from pans to wire rack to cool.
