Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls or Bread - Rural Thursday

Recently I was reading the blog of someone who had just gotten a new bread machine, and she asked for recipe ideas.  I use my bread machine all the time, and have put a lot of recipes to the test.  And by far, my family's favorite is cinnamon bread (or rolls).  This is a recipe my mom gave me, but I tweaked it just a bit to meet our needs.  When I make this, it doesn't stick around for more than a day.  The boys beg and beg for more.  And soon, alas, it is all gone.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups hot water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp. honey
4 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tsp. gluten
1 tbsp. yeast

Put all ingredients except the yeast in the bread machine in the order listed.  Make a small well in the center and add the yeast.  Process on the DOUGH cycle.

Remove dough from machine and divide in half.  Roll out each half.  Dot with butter and sprinkle w/ sugar/cinnamon.  Roll up and either slice into rolls (will fill a 9x13 inch pan) or into bread (will make 2 loaves of bread).  Cover and let rise for 30-45 minutes.  Bake at 375* for 15 - 20 minutes.

If desired, drizzle a simple glaze of 1 cup sifted confectioner's sugar, 2 tbsp. milk, and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

It's Rural Thursday!  Time to link up with Nancy from A Rural Journal and myself.  We love to see posts about your wildflowers, your nature walks, your recipes and gardening and animals.  Just grab the code beneath the button and paste it into your blog post.  Then come back to link up your url (webpage) in the linky.  Please make sure to visit and comment on the posts of at least 5 other participants.  Looking forward to reading your posts!

I haven't had homemade bread in a very long time. My grandmother used to make it often. This made me think of my mother's monkey bread which my brothers and I devoured!

This would disappear quickly at my house!

Yum! My mom used to make cinnamon raisin bread all the time when I was younger, it was awesome! I make homemade bread now for my family, but is mainly a honey/wheat/oatmeal variety. I think my kids would be over the moon if I made this though. Can it be done without a bread machine?

Hanne Bente said...

The cake / bread looks delicious from Lisa.
Thanks for the recipe - always exciting to try to bake something new.
Wishing you a good day :)

Good morning from The kitchens Garden, what a fantastic idea doing rural link ups though I have no idea how to, I am a bear of very little brain and still have to strain the milk from this mornings milking and start another cheese. I make bread twice a week, but have no bread maker, do you think this recipe would work without one?.. it looks great! c

alissa apel said...

Mary said...

That looks simple the way you do it. Very pretty loaf. I bet that did not last long..ya. Thanks for Rural Thursday.

I'm glad I don't have a bread machine; I'd probably eat the whole thing by myself!

Sandy said...

I used to have a bread machine when TJ's kids lived with us and I used it frequently....love it! Recipe sounds wonderful.

Looks good! I so miss using my bread machine but since I got candida, I don't really make bread any longer. Miss it though.

Anne Payne said...

Yummy! You post the most delicious sounding foods, but this one would have to be my favorite so far! My family loves, and I mean LOVES, homemade cinnamon rolls or bread. I will definitely have to give this recipe a try!
