Easy Roosterbrood Recipe

Serves: 36 rolls
Cooking Time: 1 hour


  • 1kg cake flour
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) salt
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) sugar
  • 60g margarine
  • 10g instant yeast
  • 250ml (1 cup) milk
  • 375ml (1½ cups) lukewarm water



Mix all the dry ingredients together and rub the margarine in with your fingertips. Mix in the yeast. Add the milk and enough of the warm water to form a soft dough.


On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic. Cover and leave to rest for 5 minutes.


Knock the dough down, divide it into 36 equal pieces and shape into round balls. Place the balls on a greased baking tray, leaving enough space between them to allow for rising. Cover and leave to rise in a warm place until they have doubled in size, about 30 minutes.


Cook on a medium braai flame until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
