Graveyard Bound: Breakfast Rolls

So, I got pretty excited about this recipe. I love making breakfast breads, but, I’m not much of a planner. This means I can’t do anything that requires an ounce of premeditation (specifically, yeast and time to rise) in the morning.

These rely on baking powder so I thought it was the answer to all of my morning woes.

Nope! These were flat, dense and boring. In all of my eloquence, I was trying to describe them and I thought, “If I was a pilgrim, on a ship across the Atlantic, I’d probably love these things!” When the bar is set there, you know these aren’t worth a repeat.

That being said, I left the recipe in its original terms because, it was weird to make, required a lot of eyeballing and a baker’s intuition. Which means…no one is going to work through this mess!
