Why are my rolls dense?
These rolls should come out light and fluffy. The main way to guarantee this is to knead the dough for at least 5 minutes.
This allows the gluten to develop to make a more elastic dough, which will then make a lighter and airier structure. The dough should be smooth on the outside and no longer sticky.
Can you use a stand mixer?
I prefer to knead the dough by hand, but you can use a stand mixer with a hook attachment. Mix on a low speed for about 5-6 minutes til it is smooth and elastic.
