Since discovering how easy it is to make my own rolls the mere thought of eating a factory baked roll sends me into a tizzy. It’s then I strap on my apron and make a beeline straight for the kitchen!
One of the most important things to keep in mind when bread baking is it takes some forethought if you plan on eating dinner at a reasonable time.
When it’s late in the evening and you’re still waiting for the rolls to rise, your hungry family will rebel.
These are soft, airy rolls with shiny tops crusted in sesame seeds. Cooked sweet potatoes give them a pretty color and adds to their tender texture without giving them a strong potato flavor.
This is a great way to use up leftover potatoes, whether they be sweet or white – I used a combination of both.
My preference for baking is for easy, quick things that give me a sense of instant gratification like one-bowl cakes, quickbreads and drop cookies.
Bread baking is teaching me to have patience, relax and most of all, to enjoy the process.
Because nothing compares to biting into a warm kaiser roll you formed with your own two hands, the very first kaiser rolls you’ve ever made, the ones you never dreamed were possible!
The rewards are so worth it.
