Bread - Dough in machine and then?

JerryMe Apr 9, 2011 03:28 PM

I suck and the whole kneading thing - I've wasted too much time, ingredients (not to mention $$). I've got dough going in the bread machine I borrowed from SO. I want to take out and cut into rolls. Does CHer know if it needs a rest before coming out of the machine and will I need to re-knead it? Has anyone else done this successfully?

    I take the dough from the machine, put it onto a greased cookie sheet, grease my hands, and flatten it down into a rough circle maybe 1/2 "- 1" thick. Then I fold each edge into the center to form a roll, flip it, and shape it how I like, then cover with a cotton cloth, let rise, and bake. So I guess you could do the same up to folding it into a roll, and then cut it into smaller pieces.

    However, I should say I am a novice bread baker and only started to do this myself several months ago. Still, I've found bread pretty forgiving.

      yep, it's easy.
      my machine beeps when the manual cycle is done. meaning it's over and time to take out.
      I take it out, shape into whatever I want, let it rest in the newly shaped position, covered with clean towel in warm enough place, then into a preheated oven.
      bread machines are wonderful in my mind.
      I've found them so helpful in many applications for many kinds of breads/rolls/loaves etc.
      good luck, hope it turns out for you.
      oh, what kind of bread are you trying to make?
      flavor, white wheat sweet french etc?

        I shape, then rise covered about 20-30 minutes before baking. No rekneading.
