Whenever you bake bread the sweet aroma will delight and amaze you. My sweet little dinner rolls were so adorable. Nothing can match it , bake it to believe it. Baking bread is always the most pleasurable moment for me and if the rise is perfect I can’t ask for more. Taste of fresh bread, be it simple white bread is just amazing. There’s nothing difficult about baking bread
But I think several steps like kneading, rising, proving and knocking and constant watch are the things that keep us away from baking such goodies. But over the experience it becomes so easy. The ingredients are so easy to get except yeast everything is there at home in every kitchen and now getting yeast is so easy nowadays. Don’t hesitate go for the experience.
My son was not at home so it becomes easy for me to keep the constant watch on the process. I am dying to try so – so many different types of bread I have never heard of and think of. I adapted the recipe from the site Myjhola. She has made so many wonderful breads in her blog. I envy of her. I thing it is an addiction.
When it was ready everybody gathered around me to taste it but we all settled for two as I had made only half of the recipe and I have to wait till morning to click photos because the result my camera gives were not good at night. They were so tasty and everybody wants more but later they all patiently obliged.
This beautiful basket was presented to me by my sister she always pamper me with so many great gifts and you know I shamelessly asked her for things which I want.
Dinner rolls, smaller rolls, usually round loaf of bread for one person. Bread rolls are commonly served as meal accompaniment (eaten plain or with bread), or else – cut transversely and with a filling placed between the two halves – used to make sandwiches similar to those produced using slices of bread.
