Remember when I posted a video and recipe on the Ultimate Dinner Rolls recently? Well I developed that recipe after making six batches of dinner rolls for this Ultimate Dinner Roll Guide post I did in collaboration with Relish.com. I wanted to see exactly what made rolls soft, fluffy, hard, crusty, dense, buttery, or chewy. Click over to see the full post with more pictures at Relish.com.
I started off with a super basic and simple dinner roll recipe as my control and made small ingredient changes in each batch, such as using whole wheat flour, more butter, eggs, bread flour, or absolutely no fat. The results were very interesting and no two batches were exactly alike in taste, texture, or shape. This was probably the most time consuming ultimate guide post I’ve created so far as each batch of rolls needed to rise twice! Despite covering my entire kitchen with flour, I had a lot of fun with this experiment and learned a lot. Hopefully this guide will help you understand how bread baking works a little better so you can make your version of the ultimate dinner rolls.
