At least twice a week, I make whole wheat or white bread. This morning we had one loaf of wheat bread left but I wanted white bread for a tuna salad sandwich for lunch tomorrow. My favorite white bread recipe makes two loaves and with one loaf of wheat bread still here, I didn’t want to make two loaves of white bread. I whacked off one piece of the dough, probably less than 1/4th of it, and set that aside to make fry bread. I divided the rest of the dough in half, made one loaf of white bread and one batch of cinnamon rolls.
The bread got baked. I love the Norpro baking pans. I have a long one and a medium one. I used the medium one, though the loaf isn’t nearly as short and fat as it looks in the picture. See . . all my pictures are kinda weird like that. I’m betting you thought Vince and I were on the short and heavy side too . . but now you know . . it’s just my camera! Or, maybe it’s the bread that makes us look short and fluffy!
The cinnamon rolls were baked and iced. My neighbor has the flu so I divided the batch in half and they got half. I’ll share a whole lot of stuff but cinnamon rolls . . I had to think about that for a while.
For an afternoon snack, we had fried bread dough.
And that’s a saucer . . not a big plate!
It’s nice to make one batch of bread dough and get bread, cinnamon rolls and fried bread from it.
