Soft Rolls

In Bakeshop, we're still working on Yeast Breads, so it was another full day of bread production. In the afternoon class, my partner is a girl named Angela - she's also in my Breads class so it's nice to spend a whole day with someone I really get along with. And we work well together, so that helps.

We made soft dinner rolls and learned how to tie bread into knots and double knots. Nothing too special here, but these are extremely versatile dinner rolls, and I think they came out pretty well. I have to work on my knots, but other than that, a very simple and useful bread to know.

The great color is from a double egg wash; the first of which was done before the final proofing, and the second of which was done right before baking. Definitely looks better with the deeper color and the shine.

Thanks again for reading along this week. I couldn't be happier to keep sharing my journey with you. I've had another amazing week and I appreciate your support and encouragement. As a reminder, you can become a follower and post comments or send me emails, and I'd love to hear from you! Wishing you a nice Labor Day weekend!
