Well, we finally did it and declared an official opening for the bakery, The Bread Doctor. It started Friday, October 25th when we offered our first product, Cinnamon Caramel Rolls. I woke up and realized that I had the day to bake, and got on the Facebook page and announced that I would bake for anyone who placed an order that day. We had a wonderful reponse and I baked 8 dozen rolls. This is a wonderful initial effort and we appreciate all who are supporting our new venture. I must say that the rolls are delicious. The bread is not so sweet (European style) and that compliments the topping well. These are a hybrid of a great sweet roll dough formula that Marda gave me with her caramel sauce. I can’t thank her enough. I left out the nuts found on many sticky buns (at the request of the customer), and added currants (not so sweet as dark raisins) and a bit of spice to the caramel topping.
The house smelled wonderfully, and I had to fight off my 13 year-old who could not understand why I was not baking for him. He had his share earlier in the week. I personally prefer pecans, and will be offering them dressed up versions with nuts later.
