It's a bit strange, but as I sat down to write this post I realized that last week's post were breads I made with Di and Allison and Nancy, and as coincidence would have it, today was another day of baking bread with Di and Allison and Nancy. We don't all make bread together that often, so that seems a bit odd to have it be two in a row. And again, it's rolls and bread.
Di found a recipe (click here) for Knotted Dinner Rolls from Peter Reinhart (the author of Bread Baker's Apprentice which I have been baking from the past couple of years). Knowing how well-written PR's recipes are, and what tasty results ensue, I didn't hesitate to join in when Di broadcasted it on Twitter for a bake-along this week.
Once again this recipe proved PR's expertise: easy, tasty, definitely a keeper of a recipe worthy of repeating often.
I made the recipe as stated, tried to form the knots properly (obviously that needs a little work, but until then let's just call them "rustic," shall we?), and smiled at the rave reviews. The rolls were nicely tender and soft, full of yeasty flavor, and I used poppy seeds on a few, and sesame seeds on the rest. Like last week: their little selves are just so cute. Quite often, I am all about the cute in food.
Here is the link to Di's rolls.
The bread I made with Nancy today, using Allison's recipe, Fancy & Delicious Cinnamon Bread, is on the rise and I will post that later today when it finishes baking.
