"Bread Alone"...Part 2....Making the bread
Reading this book has inspired me to use my bread machine which has been collecting dust for years.
I have now tried the two recipes that I had mentioned in my previous post. I started with Amish Bread. I place all the ingredients in the bread machine and let it do its work. It was "ok". I think next time I will give it a double rise time and then bake it in the oven. I was not crazy about "the cube" effect that you get with the machine. I probably will not make it again.
From there I moved on to more interesting things....cinnamon rolls. I found the recipe at All Recipes.
I placed the ingredients in the machine and pushed the dough option.
I decided to give the dough lots of time to rise......I was stunned to find that yes it did rise, right out of the machine:-)
Next I placed the dough on a floured surface and let it rise some more.
|Then I put everything together cut them to the desired width and put them in a glass dish (recomended by a review on allrecipes) and guess what? I let them rise again.|
Then I baked them as directed. Mixed up a double batch of icing. ( I found the icing to be extremely thick so I added just a touch of milk to establish a good spreading consistency and spread them over the warm rolls. They tasted amazing. I would have to give them a 9-10 on a scale of 1-10:-) I think they are even better the next day, just put them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds and enjoy with a cup of coffee or glass of milk. I think I will make these every Easter.
Happy Cooking Everyone!
Enjoy Your World:-)
