When it comes to using fresh yeast versus dry yeast I will choose fresh every time. I know it is not that easy to source, but if you ever can find it, it is totally worth giving it a go. The end results are fluffier, more fragrant and magical than the dry yeast counterparts. I used to try and use fresh yeast pre Thermomix days and had quite a few fails. Since Thermomix, never a fail. So go and find some fresh yeast and give it a go. These rolls are the perfect place to begin!
