Bread Rolls from a cold start.

For some time it has concerned me that I have to pre heat the oven for 20 mins. prior to cooking bread. Such a waste of Electricity, especially when I cook bread almost every day. I have experimented with cooking rolls, and bread sticks, from a cold start. There are 2 issues, firstly , to do the 2 rise in the oven while it is heating up, and secondly, to brown the rolls.
Make No Fuss recipe, and leave in TMX bowl to double.
Form into rolls and place on oven tray. Spray with water.
Set oven to 180 o C, place dish with water in bottom of oven, and place rolls in oven.
Set timer for 10 mins
When timer rings, increase oven temperature to 200 o C.
Bake for a further 10 mins.
Remove and cool on wire rack.

For bread sticks, remove from tin at end of the 20 mins. and place on oven rack and bake another 5 mins.
