I made these rolls today and they were very good.I only made a few changes.I added 1Tbs.glutten to help rise,1/4cup instant potato flakes to keep moist and replaced sugar with barley malt syrup and added 1/2cup more water.I think these would make great rolls for sandwhiches .Thank you for a keeper.
This was different from any bread I have tried before, but it had a really nice flavor. They are not as light and airy as I like, but it made for a really good roll. The dough was heavy and kinda dry and they didn't rise like I would have liked. I only used 1 tablespoon of the caraway seeds, because that seemed to be plenty. Thanks ellie.
