Place the roll on the baking tray and repeat with the remaining dough to form five more rolls. If needed, moisten your hands again during the making. 7. Top the six bread rolls with the sesame seeds. 8. Place the baking tray into the oven. Reduce the oven to 200°C and bake for 12-15 minutes (depending on the size of the rolls and your oven). 9.
