My client is asking for "DENSE" homemade!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The rolls I usually make for my client for the holidays is a long-time family recipe, and the rolls are delicious. They are light, fluffy, buttery without being heavy....

But my client said that although the rolls were good, she prefers a denser, heavier roll. Any suggestions? Any recipes you could steer me to? I have to make them on Tuesday.

what general style is your current recipe? a artisan type with (bigger) holes, crusty finish?

I've used plain old white bread recipes - Joy of Cooking has a good one - for rolls - they have a finer texture, bit like 'wonderbread' and not a crispy crust. not sure I'd say they are physically heavier - might "appear" so...

punch down after first rise, cut into rolls, allow second rise, bake.... watch the time - takes less that the loaf recipe (smaller mass)

what about a broiche ? maybe not dense, but they are rich and light with a great texture.

I do a nice milk bread roll for the bakery that is dense and heavy but full of rich, buttery flavour. I'll gladly pm you the formula if you would like.

This sounds perfect! :) Can you e-mail them to

Also, does it make a million rolls? Can I cut the recipe in half? I only need rolls for about 20 people....although if it makes a zillion, I could use them for homemade runzas for my clients.

The formula makes enough rolls for approximately one full size sheet pan--something like five dozen.

I have the formula at the shop. I'll pick it up in the morning and e-mail it to you before noon tomorrow.

Not usually a problem

That NEVER seems to be a problem for me! :chef:

Maybe I should just make them for you?

Anyway, good luck.
