This recipe is for my bread maker, your's may be a little different but most of the bread makers have similar dough recipes.
All the ingredients are placed in the bread maker in the order given:
1 cup water
1 large egg
3 1/4 cups bread flour (I use King Arthur)
4 tbs. white sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 tbs. dry milk
1/4 cup cold butter cut into cubes
2 tbs. dry yeast
With my bread maker I just put in the above in the order given and turn it to the dough cycle. It takes about an hour and half to cycle and then I remove it and let it rise on the counter for another hour covered by a large bowl. After an hour or even two of the first rise I punch the dough down and let it rest for 20 minutes. This is important, if you don't let the dough rest it will just keep springing back on you as you try to roll it out. At this point it can be turned into any type or roll, cinnamon, garlic, Parker House, hamburger buns, hot dog rolls , etc.
|After letting the dough rest for a few minutes roll it|
into a rectangle approximately 24" x 12" and spread a
layer of soft butter liberally over the dough.
|We love cinnamon so I first coat the dough with a cinnamon|
and sugar mixture, like what you used to put on your toast
when you were a kid. Over that I sprinkle more cinnamon
without the sugar. You can adjust this to your liking.
|How wide you cut your rolls depends on how large|
you want each to be after baking. For cinnamon
rolls I like ten to twelve pieces. These will be large
|Place the rolls is a greased baking pan and let |
raise again, covered. I usually let them go 1 to
1 1/2 hours before
popping them into the oven.
|After the second raise your rolls should fill the 9x13 pan.|
|Bake at 350 for twenty to twenty five minutes according|
to your oven's temperament and frost with vanilla icing
or leave plain to be enjoyed with a little butter on top.
