I haven't tried the 'other' one yet Judy, but I will.  How much flour did you use or is it the same as for the rolls?  I guess I should just re-read that thread.  :-))

  I used 750g white flour JulieO (just followed what Chookie did) Don't ask me why it needed more flour :P :P :P

JD,   we all have a bread genie ,  and once it is out of the bottle there is no stopping us ,  so watch out.   Next time you make this loaf,  when you flatten it out, spread some olives ( if you like them) and rosemary over before your roll it up.  You may even like to cut the roll into thick slices,  lay them overlapping slightly in a baking tray and sprinkle with cheese.  (like in Bakers Delight).   Once you have a good recipe the possibilites are endless.   Go for it.  (and freeze the results). ;D ;D ;D
I'm not into olives Chookie maybe sundried tomatoes instead?) but the cheese one sounds nice. Guess we will be hearing lots of alternatives now to make with this very popular recipe and some photos too I hope to inspire us onto bigger things.  I still intend to try your recipes too Chookie.  :-*

JD, you need the extra white flour to compensate for not putting in the grains.

Followed JulieO's method when I made this today & WOW! This is the 1st bead from the TMX that is anywhere near what I was looking for. I am not a good bread maker as loaves usually turn out heavy & stodgy but this was great. Santa brought me a camera but I haven't worked out how to do photos yet. Thanks Isi & JulioO

Thank you isi! I'll be trying this one too - maybe with JulieO's adaptation.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

I am making this as I write. One trick I read about today and it came in good time was the following: when wanting a tablespoon of honey, place the spoon in boiling water and then in the honey glass and this will mke the honey "fall off" the spoon. I want to do both a long bread loaf and smaller rolls.

Another honey tip is to heat the honey for a short while in the microwave and it makes it very liquid.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Another trick with honey in my normal bread with oil, is to measure the oil first and then the honey. The oil makes the honey slip off the spoon.

Made these rolls for the guys lunches today. They look fab. I added my usual bread improver and 1 tbsp milk powder.

I have just got a book from amazon.com called 'Ratio'. It gives the standard ratios for everything you cook. The one for bread is 5 parts flour to 3 parts water, so this recipe of isi's has the right ratio!

isi,  I made these rolls today,   they are wonderful the way they pop up in the oven.   I had almost forgotten how rewarding making white bread is...( I have been putting too much effort into making a good sour dough loaf. )    I think I might try leaving it in the TMX to rise for the 18 hours  !

The bread worked out really well! Everybody loved it and this morning we had it toasted!!! My son said it was much nicer than the (sourdough) purchased bread! And so quick to make!

Had friends to tea tonight and made your Portuguese rolls.    They were delighted as they are just like the rolls they used to have in South Africa,   these were also Portuguese.
