I’ve been quiet this week, I know. And I honestly don’t have any other excuse than it’s been a really quiet week. So one inspired the other and words didn’t really come.
We’ve enjoyed evenings filled with crafts and walks under falling snow. Warm meals and holiday movies streamed from the computer to our TV. Late nights have been spent crafting and moving along with Christmas presents and life has been simple and sweet.
And we’ve been eating a LOT of dinner rolls… LOL! I love making bread (even if it doesn’t always rise or bake the way I want it to) but this was the first recipe I’ve ever made that turned out exactly like the picture. I figured I would quickly share the recipe with you.
If you don’t know the blog Minimalist Baker, you need to. The most incredible recipes, always vegan, often gluten free and just delicious. We are yet to make a recipe from this site that hasn’t turned out exactly how it was portrayed.
The vegan dinner rolls were a huge hit here. The first time, we purposely made them bigger to use them for sandwich buns. They were so amazing we ate them all in 12 hours and made a second batch. I didn’t have enough vegan butter so I substituted for olive oil. Still amazing… The almond milk gives them such a lovely texture. Both times, they were made in under 90 minutes, kneading, rising and baking time included. Now my kids ask for them by name. And my daughter just LOVES helping me with rolling the dough.
What are some of your favorite bread recipes? I would love to know!
