Great recipe! i used the leftover whey instead of water from http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/microwave-ricotta-413789. I had my doubts as i let the yeast and whey sit for about 10 min to make sure it was active and there where very little bubbles but plundered on and low and behold after a mediocre 1st rise, i formed rolls and they rose beautifully! 12 huge rolls the were completely devoured!
This is the first review I've written - but it has to be said again, "This is an awesome roll recipe and my new favorite." Only change I made was 4 TBSP of Butter Flavor Crisco (instead of 2 TBSP butter and 2 TBSP shortening). I also used bread flour and added 4 tsp wheat gluten. Made 16 rolls in a dark glass pan. I did not bake them long enough the first time. But this made them like "brown and serve" rolls that you buy. I put them back in the oven the next day right before supper and they were fantastic! I am going to try 18 rolls in two 9x9 metal pans next time.
I've made this both ways now (bread & rolls) and they turn out tender and soft! This bread is now a staple in our household! I added slightly more flour, but other than that, I didn't change a thing. I used loaf pan that was a little longer than standard for the bread, and baked it for 23 minutes at 375 F. I got 18 slices out of the recipe. For the rolls, I only baked them for 15 minutes. They turned out light golden, and I didn't bother brushing the tops with butter. I'll be using this recipe often! Thanks! :-)
HOLY CRAP!! This IS the best roll recipe I've ever made. I can see why you have close to 300 reviews! I made this for Easter and with this recipe I think I have earned my place in my fiance's family! :) Thanks again!
Wow! Loved it! I really thought it wasn't going to lift but it did. It was a denser bread so I really liked it.
This will be new go to recipe for white bread! YUM!!!!!!!! Probably the best I've had :-)
Great texture. I added 1 more Tbsp sugar (or could reduce salt to 1 1/4 tsp too, alternatively) to sweeten it up a bit. Could have reduce yeast a tad bit too cuz there's still teeny bit of yeast flavor left. Over all, solid basic dinner rolls.
I made these dinner rolls for a party we had and they were raved about. I got 12 large rolls from this recipe. I will definitely make them again!
