  1. Thanks again for posting all your videos on youtube. Love them all. Now I have to go make some Sub Rolls.

  2. I’m soooooo making these!!! I’m also glad you post videos because I often wondered how you got your rolls so even all the time and I had no idea you’re supposed to roll it into a log and cut them evenly like that….brilliant!!!!!

  3. At risk of sounding nuts, my husband bought me a kitchen aid and my first thought was, “now I can make all of your recipes!” Love love love your channel! Making the Italian rolls tonight!

      • Ok so when you wrote “new baby” I had to reread my comments because I did just have a baby and thought I must have slipped that in there! LOL! Ordered egg shell blue but there were stock issues so I got silver- just as nice!! I’m making the Nutella brioche tomorrow! I’m sure you’re busy, but if you have time, could you offer your opinion: I was thinking cake flour for the brioche. What do you think? (Can we say fan girl moment that you responded?!)

        • OMGosh, well congrats on the human baby too! HAHAHAHA My husband laughs at me because I named my Kitchenaid mixer, and I talk to her as if she were one of my children. HAHAHAHA
          OHHHHH you know, I have never used cake flour before. I live in the boonies a bit….. our stores are limited, I am lucky when I can find wheat or rye flour. HAHAHA But if you give it a try, let me know how it works! 😀 I know it’s all in the protein amounts:
          Bread Flour: 14 – 16%
          All-Purpose (AP) Flour: 10 – 12%
          Pastry Flour: 9%
          Cake Flour: 7-8%

          Give it a try, see how it turns out. It might be very light! 😀 Which would be wonderful!!! Take a piccy for me and throw it up on facebook! 😀 I will feature it on my page! 😀

  4. Love your site. Just what I was looking for. Made these rolls today with my new KitchenAid Pro 5 Plus that I scored New for $199.99 (including free shipping!). I ended up needing 2 additional cups of flour. I should have added the liquid more slowly, but I dumped the whole amount in. Live and learn! Can’t tell you how they came out ’cause I just removed them from the oven, but they look and smell great. I made them about half the size you did so I have 16 little torpedoes. I’ll let you know how they turned out.

    FYI: your Misto should have a lifetime warranty. I e-mailed them when mine stopped working properly and they sent new parts pronto! Try contacting them to see if they can help you with your issue.

  5. I made these tonight and followed the recipe as written. They were wonderful…You have a new fan and follower .. Really enjoy the video… This is the second of your recipes I have made , the first being your Honey Buttermilk bread and it was perfect . My husband who is a tad of the picky side enjoyed it plain and tosted. Great recipes

  6. I have made these many times ,since I first saw the recipe on your site …I really enjoy you site ,in fact it has become one of my favorite sites for breads. To those of you who have not tryed this recipe ,you really need to..
