Cinnamony Rolls

I'm dusting flour off my apron and diving headlong into the world of home baked bread.
I thought I would start by making something sweet (as if I need that for my post winter waistline)

Cinnamon Rolls
My recipe came from my amazing dairy goat breeder, Ellen.
She has lots of fabulous recipes.

I mixed up the dough in the bread machine.  So easy!

Rolled it out in a large rectangle.  Ok, really, can you roll dough into a true rectangle?
It seems to always be an oval!
Sprinkle with butter, sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Roll up from the small end.

And slice.

Let rise.


and ENJOY!
They are not going to last long around here.

Here's the recipe:

Ellen's Cinnamon Rolls
1 cup water

2 tablespoons margarine or butter, softened
1 egg
3 1/3 cups flour
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons regular active dry yeast OR 3 teaspoons bread machine yeast or quick-acting active dry yeast

Place all ingredients in the bucket of your bread machine. Select dough cycle. Allow machine to complete cycle. Then dump dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into an 18x9 rectangle. Spread with 2 tablespoons softened butter or margarine mixed with ½ cup sugar and 3 teaspoons cinnamon. Sprinkle over entire surface of dough.  Starting with short side, roll up like a jelly roll. Slice into 9 - 12 equal rolls. Place in a greased 13x9 inch pan cover and let rise 30 to 40 minutes til doubled. Bake in a 350º oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Drizzle with glaze while still warm.

Mix 1 cup powdered sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla & 1 to 2 tablespoons milk until smooth & thin enough to drizzle.

  7. I can't imagine how you stay so thin with all the baking you do.

  8. Alice,
    It's easy. I have three boys and a husband that gobble it all down. I'm lucky to get any! If I really want to make sure there is plenty for me, I add nuts. None of them like nuts.

  9. Thanks for the great recipe. I am going to make this next! Your bread recipe is delicious....I have baked 4 loaves today:).
