Well, back to Ryan's bad tooth dinner, now that the excitement of Kellie's big announcement and visit are over.
To go with his Cream of Spinach Soup, Ryan wanted really soft rolls, which he could eat without much chewing. And, since I had a tooth go bad on me last Thursday (and went for a root canal on Friday), I pulled this recipe out again. Nice flavor, very soft, what more is there to say?
SOFT DINNER ROLLS
1-1/4 cups very warm milk (110-120F)
2 tbsp yeast
4 cups flour
2 tbsp gluten powder (optional)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Add ingredients to your mixing bowl or bread machine in the order given; process according to my directions (see link to the right ------>). Form into 16 balls, place on baking sheets and flatten. Let them rise 15 to 20 minutes, then bake at 375F for 15 to 20 minutes, depending upon how dark you want them.
Ryan swore that I kept him from starving to death in the 2 days before he had his tooth pulled with these rolls. And, having eaten them with a very tender mouth over this weekend, I have to agree that for soft bread, these are the best!
Happy Monday, everyone!
