There is nothing more homely than fresh baked bread, so how about some wholewheat dinner rolls. The smell straight from the oven is so irresistible so much so that I can’t wait to paste some butter, ham or a slice of delicious cheddar cheese, between two slices. Mmmm! Absolutely nostalgic! Takes you back to when granny made bread at home.
Simple to Make Wholewheat Dinner Rolls
I understand that bread is considered difficult to make by many, and a bit to time consuming by others, but I believe everyone can learn and master the art of bread making. Once you get the basic idea you will be prepared to make one of the most essential of all foods that is generally eaten at breakfast, lunch or dinner.
What You Should Know About Bread Making
But wait before you start you have to know a couple of things about bread making. Bread is made from four basic ingredients: flour, water, salt and yeast. The various textures and flavors arise when we add butter, egg, and other ingredients to the basic bread dough. Careful kneading is a must and the technique is easily learnt. Also, when the bread is hot from the oven you shouldn’t cut it hot since the bread tends to “fall” but if you’re like me there’s always a work around. The trick is to cut it with a serrated knife.
When you are kneading the dough you must ensure that it is elastic. To do this you must work at the dough pulling and stretching the dough so it can develop the gluten and capture the air. This will help your dough rise properly. This is not a gentle process. No wonder they tell you to punch the dough lol!!….. The dough will rise best in a warm, moist, and draft-free area until it has sufficiently risen. Once the dough slowly springs back after you poke it with your finger, you can now shape it.
