Hi All,
Long time reader, first time writer:) My question is, when I try to make cinnamon rolls, I get such an alcoholy yeasty taste. It was happening with my white bread also. I switched from using regular milk, to bakers special dried milk, and I sseem to no longer have that taste in my white bread. The recipe I’m using is for the cinnamon rolls is almost exactly like the white bread recipe in Roses bread bible. I’ve had this problem on and off. I check the temp of the bread and its the right temp. It will just smell so strong coming out of the oven, and its not a complex lovely yeasted bread taste, its overpowering and mixed with alcohol. Thanks for any input. And I love the Heavenly Cake Book, one of my faves is the coconut seduction cake…yummy

around 1 1/2 hours and I thought it was supposed to rise in a warm place…so I’ve been letting it rise in my llaundry room….sometimes the bread seems doubled at an hour but I thought id leave it longer to make sure….Thanks so much for taking the time to reply….

Wow, Thanks so much..with my inexperience, I had believed it was better to err on the side of over rising. Thanks so much for replying..I’ve only started baking white loaves of bread, and rolls. But, it’s just amazing to have homemade bread, and how it actually affects your family in such a positive way. I’m addicted!!! I’m going to give it another try…..will let you know how it goes!!! I’m going to try Rose’s recipe for brioche, a little more advanced for me, but I’m feeling adventurous…....Shirin

Thanks so much Julie and Charles!!
    I think I started with white loaves because I was apprehensive (scared) of making bread….lol I would love to get to where I can make a sourdough loaf! I can’t wait to make Rose’s Brioche dough recipe!!
