For Sunday's dinner, I made a special effort. My in-laws are back in town and my Beloved is leaving with his father to go on a week-long bike trip down in Moab. I show love through food. The menu: BBQ brisket, garlic mashed potatoes, homemade rolls, lemonade, green salad, and chocolate cloud cake for dessert. Are you licking your screen yet?
I'd made the rolls before but we were hosting a large crowd so I wanted to double the recipe. My breadmaker is rather large so I figured it wouldn't be a problem. Then with 20 minutes to go on the dough cycle, I notice this:
Hrmmm...it's not supposed to look like that...Or like this -
Uh oh...maybe doubling the recipe wasn't such a good idea! My father-in-law was highly entertained by the fact that the dough was rising out of the machine. Me? Not so much.
This is what it looked like when the dough was done...time for the true test: baking the dough into rolls.
They turned out really good! No problem! But next time? I'm not doubling the recipe.
