Hello I am new here, and need help with yeast breads
Hello, I am new to this site, found it while looking for help with making yeast bread. I confess, I can not make yeast bread, I have been trying for years and have never gotten it to rise. Yesterday was my latest attempt, and of course it didn't work. I have purchased all new ingredients, so everything is fresh. I use a thermometer, so my liquids temps are correct. I have tried no knead recipes and knead recipes with no luck and this time I even tried my new kitchenaid stand mixer with the bread hook, to knead it, so I think I got it right, but still nothing. Hard as a rock. I would love any other suggestions that you might be able to give.
I can make Quick breads and love to make them, but I would really like to make homemade yeast rolls. My sister in law used to make these wonderful sweet rolls, they were so tender and light, unfortunately she is no longer my sister in law, so I can't get the recipe for them, but I have to master yeast before I can make them anyways. Thanks for you help in advance.
