This is my favorite bread. To have enough time to rest dough makes bread very soft and tasty.This bread goes well with creamy soups and good for sandwiches. Bread machine goes well too.

This makes delicious light and airy rolls. I wanted to have some to freeze for later, and my cooking scale only weighs in 5-gram increments, so I multiplied the recipe by 5. Other than substituting the same weight of honey for the sugar, I stayed with the recipe's ingredients and amounts. Perhaps because of the increased liquid (which I hadn't allowed for), I needed about 150 g more flour for the quintupled recipe. I made these by hand, so added enough flour for a soft, but kneadable dough. I kneaded the dough well. My yield was 6 65-g rolls and 38 45-g rolls, which I'm sure we will enjoy. Thank you for this recipe.
