I have tried countless recipes for Cinnamon Rolls trying to find the perfect recipe. This is it!! I can't ever make enough of these at home! They are so easy to make too - don't you just love bread machines!
Headline: BREAD MACHINE RESCUES MEAL FROM BOREDOM! Never again will you purchase French bread from the store. Impress your friends and neighbors with a warm loaf, laugh delightedly when the compliments start rolling in. COOKING TIME includes rising time, too.
This is now our daily bread -- my daughter makes it several times a week in our bread machine. This has replaced the earlier version that I have posted because we've tried to eliminate white flour from our diets wherever possible. The vital wheat gluten is what makes it possible for the bread to rise nicely. Gluten is the protein part of the wheat kernel, and you can buy a powdered form of it at most health food or whole food stores -- that's what you need for this recipe to work. Without the gluten, it'll be a brick. So, get the gluten unless you want to build a bread wall. Cooking time is for the white bread cycle on our machine. Your time may vary.
DH and I buy at least one loaf a week of ciabatta and eat it with olive oil. I finally decided to see it I could make a better bread than the brands we've tried from the store. We agreed that this is the best bread we've EVER had! The first loaf was gobbled before the second one came out of the oven! :) Can't wait to make it again!! Note: The dough will be VERY sticky - do not add more flour. The bread itself is not tall and fluffy. It has a wonderfully crisp, tender crust. It would be perfect for an Italian sandwich, if cut horizontally, of mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and s&p.
This recipe uses no refined products and is very healthy to eat. I order my whole berries from a co-op and grind my wheat yourself. I think it tastes better when you grind your wheat yourself but if you don't have a mill you can still buy the whole wheat flour at the store. I also mix my bread up in a Bosch mixer. If you don't have a mixer like a Bosch, DLX or a Kitchenaid you can do it by hand.
This is a very tasty bread. We use it for toast and sandwiches. It is always requested by my family for functions. I got the recipe several years ago on the internet. Sorry I can't remember who from. I sure would like to give them credit. The prep. time includes time to rise.
