Reviews for Cornmeal Pan Rolls
"These were good but not great. The texture was somewhat off and seemed too dense."
"The rolls came out ok , but not my best ones. First , the batter was real soft after beating with dough blades (3 minutes)and I had to add almost 1-1/2 extra cups of flour to get it up to the kneading stage...they did rise..and bake ok ,,but flavor was not the best.. as far as comment being made about cornmeal not for human consumption ,,welll .. I have seen PLENTY OF HUMAN HOGS..PIG OUT ON THEIR FOOD IN MANY OF PLACES IN MY JOURNEY THRU LIFE ... so that should settle the cornmeal issue.... lol...."
"They were a little flat and did not have a very good flavor. They were a bit blah for a homemade bread. Ordinarily, I would give a recipe a second chance in case I did something wrong but I don't think I will with these."
"These are wonderful.I will be adding this to my holiday tables this year."
"These rolls turned out absolutely Awesome! I also disagree about the review from LeahAnnJ. This is a spot designed for comments on taste, helpful hints, etc. Her comment was way off the wall and completely unacceptable!!! This recipe was off the chart wonderful--That's the main thing here. Not about livestock feeding!"
"I tried this recipe last night using my bread machine because the amount of dough is perfect for that... not to mention how easy it is! The flavour was great when the bread was warm, but the texture came out more like English muffins. I wonder if due to the fact I live in a high altitude if maybe I should have used a bit more flour to avoid so much air in the bread. Any suggestions?"
"I agree with Sherry Hughes....LeahannJ's review should be removed! These are excellent rolls. My aussie family loved them."
"PLEASE do not write a review based on what you think. Base it it on how the recipe when made TASTES. It is unfair to rate a recipe you have not made. People use the ratings to determine if they want to make a recipe or not. I made these rolls and they are wonderful. As a Southerner i can tell you that cornbread may be fed to pigs where you come from, but cornbread is a fantastic staple of the traditional Southern home. Try it - you will like it."
"cornmeal is what we as farmers fed the hogs. It was not for human consumption and I just cant get that out of my head as an adult.. sorry, but that is how it is.."
"Totally yummy! I used the dough cycle of my bread machine, then shaped them into 18 pieces and they came out great! Always a hit when I serve them."
