Mashed potatoes replace very well eggs in breads or cakes, they gives an excellent texture to bread or cakes.

Especially in yeasted bread or dinner rolls, potatoes gives fabulous airy and soft crumb with beautiful crust as well. Coming to this dinner rolls, this cuties are egg free, butter free and completely vegan. Obviously no need to hesitate a second to give a try to this vegan dinner rolls if you are planning to make some dinner rolls soon.These dinner rolls goes to this month's blogging marathon as we are running Megamarathon during this whole month of April with baking as theme.
