Well, look at it this way, SuzieQ, if they're too light and fluffy they'd fall apart adding all the great stuff to the second brat that you have kindly slowed down to eat for me! :) So they're needs to be a bit of substance to them---btw your picture was gorgeous---you may have 3 rugrats to run after but you know how to hold a camera still:):):)

OK - Great job really makes me want to try. My question is this, did you really use all purpose flour, or did you use bread flour?

I used all-purpose, I thought I still had bread flour and didn't find out I was wrong until the yeast was proofing!

However, you would have used bread flour if you had it. Corrrect? With that answered, would bread flour always be your choice for yeast dough, regardless of what the recipie says? If not, what would influence your choice. Sorry if I am being pushey / nosey. Jist trying to learn.

I would have tried the bread dough, I haven't yet for this recipe.
For French bread, I use it.
For my caramel rolls, I don't. Bread flour has higher gluten content (I believe) and gives bread more chewiness....
That said I dont know if I really want these hot dogs buns real chewy like french bread.
I think I'm going to the store tomorrow to test my theory!
I've only been bread baking in earnest about a year, I'm certainly no expert.

I have been baking in ernest for only 7 months or so. Prior to that, I baked some off and on. I just enjoy it. I can't beat that first slice when it's just out of the oven. I'm doing 2 loaves of rye every two weeks. Foccacia Bread for me, I have a grest recipie for that. Trying to get a loaf of 10 grain done.

I've made the allrecipes recipe many times and have never used bread flour. I agree with SuzieQ that I think it would make them too chewy.
