Have you ever tried baking yeast bread using ice water? This is what my experiment is all about. Using ice water instead of warm water normally called for.
The method is the same but it takes slightly longer time to rise but this method produces much softer and fluffier bread. You can shape them according to your imagination.
This is a keeper, my son quickly grabs the roll fresh from the oven without hesitation. That's the power of homemade rolls, simply irresistible!
