    My rolls

    Breadhead here is my favorite

    ​478g. bread flour
    313g. water
    34g. sugar
    10g. yeast
    10g. salt
    3T. cubed cold butter

    Measure out all ingredients

    Mix Water, yeast, sugar, 105° 10-15 mins

    Add flour mix for about 3 mins.

    Add salt and mix for 6 minutes...dough should be slack. Add water as needed. I usually add 1/2t water at a time if needed

    Add cubed cold butter and mix for 2-4 more mins. At first the dough will get messy and you will think you messed up, you didn't. It will all come back together, when it does your done

    Let rise an hour or so till at least doubled.

    After it has risen take it and punch down. This will make about 8 good size sub rolls or buns. The batch I just made weighed 975g when done. 100g will make an avg hamburger roll. I like to roll the dough into a 1 to 1 1/2" log and cut 1 1/2" to 2" pieces out to make little dinner sized rolls. They are perfect size for sliders.

    After you have portioned, put on parchment paper on a sheet pan and let rise 20-40 mins.

    Bake at 375° for 15-23 minutes. Depends on size and oven so my first alarm is at 12 minutes and go from there.

    If you would like to try the Tangzhong Dough method

    measure out all ingredients.

    take out 3T of the flour and 1/2 cup of the water and mix in a pan on stove

    heat to 149° and remove immediatley. This will make a rouix like dough, and this you will add to the step of adding flour when you follow the recipe.

    Enjoy, Rick

      gardenfish ...

      Looks like a nice formula and interesting technique. Thanks for sharing.

      I like that you're using metrics and a digital scale.👍


        I bought some English muffin rings and am going to try today for the first time to make a higher hamburger bun sized roll. I will make four today and keep the extra dough in the fridge to make slider rolls on wed. Taste improves with age on the dough.

          I've been using 3.5" ring molds for my sourdough English muffin project. I fill each ring mold with 100 grams of dough and they come just right.

          Delayed fermentation adds flavor... Yes. Bread is much like BBQ. Low yeast and slow development makes better bread.😎

        I need to get into this side of cooking. I just don't have the kitchen right now. Once I move into my new crib shack, that will be a different story.

          I like baking bread as much as I like perfecting a long low and slow cook. I usually bake some bread while I'm doing a low and slow cook.😎


            Got a good 1 hr rise then put 100g pieces in the rings and gave them an hour too. In the oven now.

            And now freshly buttered out of the oven. Picnics are at 178°. Going to be a great meal in a couple hours

              Nice bungs!

            gardenfish ... Great looking buns! You're in for some fine eating tonight.👍 I like to get my buns a little darker than grocery store buns. I do that by using only the yolk of an egg as my egg wash. That gives you a darker shiny finish. Plus I use sesame seeds just to make them look pretty.😎

              I throw a cup of water in the oven when the rolls go in and then butter the tops when they come out for softer crust. Your rolls look awesome. I am going to try the Brioche recipe next.
