Dark and Soft "Chain Restaurant" Dinner Rolls (vegan friendly)
Jill and I decided to make dinner rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. We chose different recipes and the one I picked uses a combination of bread flour and whole wheat flour. For a vegan version, use maple syrup--which I did--instead of honey, and of course vegan margarine instead of butter. I didn't have any caramel coloring so I just left that out. The rolls still came out a lovely brown color. I forgot to add the cornmeal to the top of the rolls but I liked how soft they came out without the crunchy cornmeal. 4 ounces of dough for each roll makes a huge roll--more sandwich size. I made my rolls closer to 3 ounces and they were still quite large.
The rolls were delicious and had a great flavor with the whole wheat flour and maple syrup. You can find the recipe here. Check out Jill's rolls and the recipe she used.
