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."
"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! This recipe was off the chart wonderful!"
"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?"
"These are excellent rolls. My aussie family loved them."
"I made these rolls and they are wonderful. As a Southerner i can tell you cornbread is a fantastic staple of the traditional Southern home. Try it - you will like it."
"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."
