Lovely taste and texture to this bread. I had the opposite problem that Annacia did - my dough was very soft, and while I added extra flour, I was hesitant to add much more. So I ended up with a soft dough that had to be baked in a loaf pan. I would have liked to make it as rolls. I used fresh milk as I had no powder and let the orange zest steep in the milk a while. It rose beautifully and resulted in a very good looking loaf. I will play with this to try to achieve rolls.
