Can Rhodes dough be thawed in a microwave?
Rhodes Rolls can be microwave thawed. Place 6 rolls on a plate sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Microwave on high for 25 seconds. Turn rolls over and microwave on high for an additional 25 seconds. Please remember that microwaves vary, over heating the roll may prevent the roll from rising properly.
Microwave thawing bread dough is not recommend. Loaves defrosted in the microwave do not thaw evenly.
How do I roll out Rhodes dough for recipes or pizza crust?
The dough must be at room temperature or warmer. Let the dough thaw until it is warm and pliable (3 hours for rolls and 4 - 5 hours for bread dough). The speed method on the package may also be used. You may also choose to roll the dough out as much as possible, then cover and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Then finish rolling the dough out.
Spray your work surface with a non-stick cooking spray or lightly coat with oil. Do not use flour as it tends to dry out the dough and causes the dough to lose its elasticity.
Rhodes roll dough is easier to roll out than bread dough. Eight Texas Rolls or 12 Dinner Rolls are equivalent to one loaf of Rhodes bread dough.
How can I get the "speed" of refrigerated dough with frozen dough?
True, refrigerated dough is faster than frozen dough because you do not have to thaw it. But those who appreciate the flavor and aroma of Rhodes yeast-raised dough do offer some tips:
Rhodes dough can be left in the refrigerator for about 16 hours. Put a bag of rolls in the refrigerator in the morning and take the rolls out in the evening when we you arrive home. Within an hour the rolls are ready to bake. Another method is to put cinnamon rolls in a pan to raise in the refrigerator at about 8 p.m. Often, depending on the temperature of your refrigerator and how long you sleep, they can be ready to bake when you get up in the morning. Bake an extra dozen for the neighbors!
Many Rhodes Recipes call for thawed dough. How long does it take for my rolls/bread to thaw?
