How To Get Consistently Good Bread Rolls Every Time

Posted on: 24 June 2018


If you run a bakery or just like surprising your loved ones with an array of baked goods, then you know just how important it is to know how to make the perfect bread rolls. Bread rolls are not only a great addition to just about any classic American meal, but they are also a good dessert when topped with delicious homemade butter like honey butter or strawberry butter. But, much like with any baked goods recipe, your bread rolls may turn out to be practically perfect some of the time and a complete disaster the rest of the time. So, how can you ensure that your bread rolls come out consistently good each and every time? This article will take a closer look at a few helpful tips.  

Use a Double Arm Mixer

If you are the type of person who hand kneads their dough, then you know just how many variances there are in your bread rolls from batch to batch. By using a double arm mixer every time, you can ensure that you always end up with the same consistency and texture; every time. Plus, because double arm mixers are made for a soft dough, you know that it's not going to overmix it and make it rock hard. 

Use a Convection Oven

Convection ovens should be a requirement for every baker. By circulating the heat throughout the oven, a convection oven helps to ensure that every baked good is getting the same amount of heat, so that everything turns out evenly. Plus, with a convection oven, you are less likely to burn your rolls or undercook them. 

Use the Same Ingredients

Sometimes you may find that you have to improvise with your recipe and ingredients and make substitutions like applesauce for eggs or baking powder for baking soda. But, when you don't have to, don't do it. Although sometimes substitutions come out just as good as the original recipe, if you are looking to make consistently good bread rolls then you need to make sure that you are using consistently good ingredients. 

Making the perfect bread roll takes a lot of work and a lot of practice, but with a family full of bread roll taste testers, you know that you have an audience that doesn't mind all of your practice. Once you master your recipe, use the tips in this article to ensure that your rolls taste good every time.
