Welcome to Part I of my new series Baking Outside My Comfort Zone. While I love to bake, there are some recipes that still intimidate me and seem out of reach. I have a new goal to conquer my fears and I’m taking you along for the ride. First up, yeast breads!
This is not the first time I’ve made rolls. I’ve made so many, and some of them have been pretty good and some have not. I’ve baked my fair share of rolls that were so dense they’d go straight to the bottom if you chucked them into the sea, which is probably what you’d want to do if I ever tried to feed you one.
I’ve never been able to bake that perfect dinner roll with a soft, delicate, and airy texture. At least not one that I’ve been completely satisfied with and proud of. Until now.
These rolls were so easy to make, and so easy to do well. I spent some time studying the instructions, browsing tips from Red Star Yeast and attempting to remember lessons learned in culinary school years ago. I think it was the extra effort and awareness that really made the difference with this batch.
The result? Perfect, delicious dinner rolls that rival anything your neighborhood bakery sells. Rolls that would be a lovely accompaniment to any meal.
