Shaping dinner rolls is quite simple and you can watch this video tutorial to see how simple it is. I also show you how to place them in the cake tins so that they join when they are rising and baking.
When you leave your dough to rise do not let it rise too much otherwise they deflate. Bread rises some more in the oven, this is called oven spring, so you need to leave some room for this.
After baking I show you how to make them shiny on top with some simple syrup which is made with an equal amount of sugar and water boiled down.
