Baking Rhonda's homemade bread (rolls)...

I thought I'd give Rhonda's bread recipe a go - we are having an Italian dish for lunch today so I thought fresh crusty bread rolls would go really well with it...
~
Add the yeast and sugar to warm water in a cup. Let it sit for about 10 minutes and it will froth up (this means the yeast is good and active) ...
~
I decided to use my bread maker on the 'dough' setting (Rhonda said it was okay!)
~
Add in the wet yeast mixture...
~
And away it goes for 1 and a half hours...
~
~
Now it's ready to tip out and knock down...
~
Tip the dough out of the machine and give it a good kneading for 2 minutes...
~
Portion the dough into pieces then roll/knead it into balls...
~
Brush with water for a nice crust and top with oats, sesame or poppy seeds. I gave mine a snip with scissors to add detail... now you need to let them rise in a warm place for 20 minutes or so...
~
Bake in a pre-heated over at 220C for 10 minutes then reduce to 200C for further 5-8 minutes...
~
Oh, yeah!
~
They browned up really nice and were very light and fluffy inside. I am very happy with this recipe.

  2. The rolls look terrific! I so wish I could purchase Rhonda's book, but the shipping to Canada is ridiculous, so not on the horizon.

    Have a wonderful week,
