It is my opinion that if a recipe gives so many different results that it is probably not a very good recipe. I tried this recipe as I was curious as to why so many had poor result and so many good. I work in a bakery and I have to say that I tend to agree with the poor results side. The recipe is definitely gooey. Either the liquid is wrong or the flour amount is wrong. I did not add the 1/2 C of cold water to the yeast. I simply poured the yeast into the first liquid step when the temp. cooled down a bit. This worked great. I kept the flour amount about the same and also I kneaded the dough for 10 mins. I think that there are so many other great recipes out there that work everytime and it would serve you well to find one of those, especially beginners.


Excellent rolls! I had to add more flour than called for. The next time I will make them bigger than walmut size. I also made some into cinnamon rolls. I like the dinner rolls better!


These were great! I halved the recipe and got worried because it came out more of a batter than dough. I made pull apart rolls with it. They were spectacular right out of the oven! And even the day after were very good.
