    • 115 g (1/2 cup) butter

    • 2 g (1/2 tsp) baking soda

    1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles; remove from heat. Add the butter and sugar; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
    2. Pour the cooled milk mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast and stir to dissolve. Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder and 4 cups of the flour; stir well to combine. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes.
    3. Lightly oil a large mixing bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
    4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    5. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and form into rounds. Place the rolls on 2 lightly greased baking sheets. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
    6. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

    I followed this recipe exactly and the dough barely rose at all. Its like unlevened bread. It still tastes ok, but something has got to be off in the ingredients- I dont know what.  -  08 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    These rolls taste really good, but I tried the recipe twice, and both times, it came out really heavy; it hardly rose at all. Maybe I need to go lighter on the flour?  -  10 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
