I've been looking for a recipe online to replicate the rolls you'd find at a 'Ryans' or 'Golden Corral'. I've tried several that sound promising, only to have them turn out tasting like another type of bread. Everyone seems to have the general consensus that they're yeast rolls, but those come in many forms.
I recently tried a recipe that sounded promising, because it had sugar in it and I know that they are a little sweet. However, when I cooked them, they tasted like the 'Parkerhouse' rolls and the texture wasn't correct. It's like if you squeezed these, they'd almost crumble, where they ones I want will almost mold into your hand when you squeeze them. I'll try to include a picture in this post.
My question is what makes this bread the way it is? Is it a style of bread, is it the manner in which its cooked, like with a water bath or something, or would it be the ingredients that affected this aspect.
These are delicious rolls, several restaurants have them, so it's not a secret recipe, and I'd like to narrow down my search for the correct recipe.
Here is a pic of the ones I'm talking about:
