Tips for making yeasty smell free bread is to follow the yeast and risen rules, simple as that. Follow the recipe time and you are a champion.
My kids love bread so much, but getting the bread with good ingredients is so hard. If you get better ones it will be expensive. So, I decided to make the one I can make at home since my lil champs prefer homemade to store bought.
These dinner rolls can be eating on its own but if you are like us feel free to add jam, butter, cream cheese, mayonnaise or avocado spread. See how I pack it in the kid’s lunch box here.
