Creating a variety of breads using just one dough is not that hard. You just have to think and write them all on a paper and think of whether the kind of bread fits the dough that you have on hand.
If you do it right, you can create as many as 12 or even more different kinds of breads from just one dough.
A medium rich dough, one with eggs, milk, butter and sugar can work as you all in one dough and produce for you Pandesal, Buns, Dinner Rolls, Ensaimada, Doughnuts, Mongo, Coconut, Cinnamon Rolls, Loaf Bread, Braided Bread, Fruit and Nut Bread, Sandwich Bread, and many more as shown on the photos below.
If you want, you can use the same dough to make Spanish breads and Pan de coco, Hotdog and Hamburger Buns etc.,, Now that is real fun in a bun!!!
Top photo, one dough showing Cinnamon Rolls, Dinner Rolls, Cheese Rolls and a Fruit and Nut Braided Bread. You can use this dough to make a Loaf bread, Pandesal, Soft bun or hamburger bun and lots more. The only questions is whether you have enough dough to make them so plan ahead and write down what breads you want to make.
Below is a lean type of dough, no sugar, no fat and no eggs. Just salt, water, yeast and flour. You can make an entire book using just this plain dough, just flavor some with onions and garlic, herbs, spices and fillings etc., and you can have Calzones, Flatbreads, Ciabatta, Pizzas, Crusty Rolls, French breads etc...
The same lean dough is used to make Pita Breads, for a Gyro type of sandwich or to make Pita Chips!!!
My favorite way to eat Pita is to dip them in Tomato and Basil Salsa since i have tons of Basil plants.
Or you can heat up your cast iron and cook your flatbread Paratha style on the hot griddle or cast iron pan.
One thing bread making asks of you is to be creative. That's what makes baking challenging and fun at the same time. I can't wait to make another batch of these to eat with hummus and beans, with some of my garden greens. I am getting hungry. I better stop typing.
