These are so much better than the ones you buy at the store. I mean don’t get me wrong, those are great too. These are just so fresh and delicious.
I used the King Arthur Flour recipe and changed it up just a bit (as I do). Rather than make a separate sponge, I used sourdough starter discard. I did add a bit extra salt because I find their recipes are often less salty than I prefer.
Kneaded it in the stand mixer and refrigerated overnight.
The next morning I formed into dough balls. Make SURE the pan is well oiled! Some of mine stuck (although I wasn’t very gentle trying to get them out of the pan). Still tasted delicious.
And allowed them to rise. They weren’t kidding when they said that sweet rolls take longer to rise! This took about 3 hours at 90 degrees in my Breville Airfry Smart Oven on the proof setting. I can tell you that it would have taken longer had my temperatures not been so consistent!
And bake in a 350 degree Fahrenheit pre-heated oven for 20 minutes. Mix the leftover egg white with a tablespoon of water and brush over tops of rolls. Return to oven and cook for 6-10 minutes until golden brown.
Me made these into sliders!!
