Week 4 - Roll up, Roll up!
Another week and another recipe challenge, this time sun blush tomato, rosemary and garlic rolls.
The first set back was that there was no video to help and follow step by step, and no picture of what the rolls should look like. So it was all down to me. I hadn't realised how much the videos had helped put me at ease previously, until they were gone!
I managed to wait for them to cool down so I could taste one - the texture was good but I think I added too much garlic and rosemary. I'll be breathing fumes over everyone for days!
I began by measuring out the flour, yeast, sugar, salt and warm water and added it to the Kenwood Chef Titanium mixer bowl. I attached captain Dough Hook and turned it on. While the captain got on with the dough, I chopped up the rosemary, garlic and tomatoes and put them in the fridge for later. The recipe didn't give exact amounts so I had to guess.
The dough was ready by this time and I put it in the airing cupboard to rise. I then set about looking for a tray to cook the rolls on. I did not have a flat one so I decided on a cake tin I had bought on a whim when dreaming of being the next Mary Berry and which had then remained forlornly in the cupboard.
After an hour of pacing and tidying up, what seemed like white powder all over the kitchen, I peered into the cupboard and saw, with relief, the dough had risen. I gave it another mix with the extra ingredients and split it into the six holes in the tray - another 25 minute wait and they went in the oven to bake.
The smell was gorgeous and pretty soon it was time for the big reveal - they looked ok if a little pasty. I managed to wait for them to cool down so I could taste one - the texture was good but I think I added too much garlic and rosemary. I'll be breathing fumes over everyone for days!
