You can buy bread rolls in different types, from hard to soft, but there is nothing better than homemade French bread that is still warm from the oven. To start, add the bread flour to the mixing bowl and add sugar, yeast, salt, and eggs. Then, start mixing this for about a minute. While mixing, add the milk, mix for another minute, and then start adding the water little by little while the mixer is still on low speed.

You want the dough to be smooth, so you will add the water in bits until you can see and feel the dough soft. After kneading for 8 minutes, add the butter and keep kneading for another 20 minutes. Always ensure you knead it very well because the kneading process makes the pieces of bread or the buns softer.

Once the dough is ready, put it in a greased bowl and leave it in a warm place until it doubles in size. If you live in a cooler climate, always make sure that you switch on the oven to 30 degrees. Then, you can switch it off or down to 20 degrees and leave it in the oven to proof. If not, it will take a long time for the dough to rise.

After the dough is ready, flour your work surface, put the dough on it, punch it down, and add more flour. Next, cut the dough into equal-sized pieces, take one piece out, press it down, roll it, and leave it on the bench to proof again for about 10 minutes.

Take one piece of the dough and roll it into a rectangular or oval shape. Roll from one end to the other and press the ends (use flour if it is a bit sticky). Put it inside a non-stick pan and leave to rise for about 20 minutes.

When ready, brush the top with egg wash and bake in a 350-degree Fahrenheit oven for about 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. When ready, remove them from the oven and let them cool down before serving.
