ARTISAN BREAD IN FIVE MINUTES A DAY by Jeff Hertzberg & Zoe Francois

This is what happens when I fall in love with a really super cookbook.  I can't stop using it!

Remember last week when I showed you the Bran Enriched White Bread? Well, these Sticky Caramel Rolls come from the same book.  Baking bread is now a part of my cooking routine.  It's nothing to pop fresh dough in the oven and have hot, fresh bread for dinner.  My plan is to wean my family (the kiddos particularly) off the store bought stuff and save money.  Have you noticed the price of a loaf of bread these days? Yikes.

I learned a good lesson making these sweet delights.  When it comes time to cut the dough into serving slices, it's IMPORTANT to use a serrated knife and not a blunt knife or dough scraper.  The serrated knife gives a cleaner cut.

Now, I'm sorry, but I'm not going to type out the Sticky Caramel Rolls recipe.  You're going to have to buy the book, ARTISAN BREAD IN FIVE MINUTES A DAY by Jeff Hertzberg & Zoe Francois.

HOWEVER, I will delight your eyes with food porn and make your mouth water. I'm hoping the hot dripping caramel topping will convince you to click on the link and buy the book.  The book is totally worth the money and the outcome of the recipes are completely worth your time. Now without further ado, Breakfast Food Porn.

One last thought to share, this was my first time to make a caramel roll recipe.  I have NEVER attempted to make them, because most recipes are too labor intensive.  When I look back at these pictures, it looks like I've had practice, but I haven't.  I just followed the recipe and it produced these beautiful rolls.

This book has my neighbors & friends thinking that I've been a baker for years, that I'm a super talented gourmet whatever!  But I'm not.  I'm learning like everyone else.
