    Hi. I've tried to make rolls twice. Both times the rolls didn't rise.
    Then I tried to make bread. It was dense and heavy.
    My aunt makes rolls with her machine and they are light and fluffy. icon_sad.gif

    How do you make rolls with a machine? icon_question.gif

    Thanks.

    PS. I used normal unbleached flour.

    I have had good success with this recipe:
    Buttery Bread Machine Rolls #65340 by jean. The only tiny problem I've ever had with it was sometimes I have to bake a bit longer to get the bottoms brown enough, but usually they turn out just beautifully.

    I use Gold Medal Better for Bread flour for my bread machine. Some say you can use all purpose flour interchangeably but I have always used bread flour -- I am sure somebody on here can explain better than I can, what the difference is and why it makes a difference. I have used regular packets of active dry yeast and also Fleishman's Bread Machine Yeast in a jar with about equal results. I usually use the packet yeast for the rolls, I think.

    Usually if your dough doesn't rise it means your yeast is dead. Using too hot a liquid will kill it. Your yeast may also be too old. I have even had brand new yeast that was current dated, but bad. I always proof my yeast now--take 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the water called for in your recipe (lukewarm), and stir the yeast into it along with a teaspoon of sugar. Let this mixture sit for 10 minutes or so. It should be very frothy if your yeast is good. At that point, continue on with your recipe by adding the rest of the liquid and then the dry ingredients. If the yeast didn't get frothy, dump it out and get new yeast.

    Making rolls in the bread machine is easy. Use the dough cycle. At the end of the cycle, remove the dough and shape into rolls. Cover and let rise until double in size, then bake. There are many good bread machine roll recipes on 'Zaar.

    You can use either all-purpose flour or bread flour for rolls. I kind of prefer unbleached all-purpose because it bakes up lighter and finer textured and more tender. Try adding 1/4 cup of instant potato flakes to your roll recipe. It makes an amazing difference.
