Bread - Dough in machine and then?
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?
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 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.
