Sometime back, I began experimenting with all kinds of bread recipes. It (of course) began as a way to enjoy Homemade Bread, test my baking skills and to see what all the fuss was about?
After viewing countless bakeries, piled high with baked goods and seeing Artisan bread going at $9-$10 a loaf (sometimes in Sydney.) I began experimenting with The plastic bag bread (& shortcuts.) Through to the 24hr Honey Biga Starter and more recently, a Black Bread, made with cocoa & stout.
Ironically enough, my Sweetheart at home likes his bread ‘Plain & White!’ So much so in fact, that he requested a simple, light & fluffy roll (to go) with our dinner….that means no 24hr starters with beer infused cocoa, or honey scented crusts!
I give you hence the classic white roll.
It’s waiting for you now. Waiting to be passed around the table. Waiting to echo that delicious crack as you break open that lovely crust. Waiting to be slathered in butter.
A silent moment for the dinner roll please…
