Making rolls and Bread

Fragrant, crusty homemade bread and rolls are easy to make with modern yeast. Actually, yeast rolls, especially the type that is made without kneading or shaping, are simpler and easier to make than baking powder biscuits. If you are a beginner, start with Feather rolls, Raised Whole-Wheat Muffins and Brioche. As your courage and experience increase, you can make Hot Rolls, Sweet Rolls and Coffee Cakes, for these delicious breads rise quickly and are easy to watch. When you feel confident in judging the amount of flour to use and the time dough needs to rise, you will be ready to try that triumph of all baking - a handsome loaf of bread.
Since bread-making is a somewhat lengthy process, it will be better to make the full amount in the recipes even if your family is small. You can divide the dough and make it up in several different ways--part for a loaf of bread, part for tiny rolls or sweet buns, and part for a coffee cake. Bake them all at once and store them in the freezer. Reheat the stored breads just before you serve them so that they will taste fresh-baked. Frost sweet buns and coffee cakes after they have been reheated.
