Cinnamon Rolls/Bread from OAMC Easy Mix Yeast Bread Dough for 2

“Of course you can double for larger families, or multiple days of bread. I made a cookbook of recipes that use this dough. For whole wheat version, substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup of the stirred in all-purpose flour. I've used my stand mixer for this, but it is certainly not necessary. Double this recipe fits in my KitchenAide stand mixer. Triple won't. From Better Homes and Gardens.”

Directions

  1. For the basic dough used in my other recipes:
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the yeast.
  3. In a medium saucepan heat and stir milk, margarine, sugar, and salt just till warm (120 to 130 F) and margarine almost melts.
  4. Add to flour mixture. Add egg. Beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining flour. Divide dough into halves or quarters.
  5. To chill, cover portions and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 3 days.
  6. Or, to freeze, wrap the portions in plastic wrap and place in freezer bags. Seal, label, and freeze for up to 3 months. To use let dough stand at room temperature about 2 1/2 hours or till thawed. (Or, thaw overnight in the refrigerator.).
  7. To make cinnamon rolls, use 1/4 of the above recipe.
  8. On a floured surface roll or pat dough into a 6 inch square. Melt margarine or butter, brush atop dough. In a bowl combine sugar or brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over dough. If desired, sprinkle dough with nuts or chocolate pieces. Roll up dough starting from any side. Pinch seam to seal. Cut roll into 6 slices.
  9. Place slices cut side down in a greased 8X4X2 inch loaf pan. Cover, let rise in a warm place till nearly double (about 30 minutes). Bake in a 375 oven about 20 minutes or till golden. Cool slightly, remove from pan.
  10. For icing, in a bowl combine powdered sugar and vanilla. Stir in milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, till icing is smooth and of drizzling consistency. Drizzle over rolls. Makes 6 rolls.
  11. To make bread instead of rolls,.
  12. prepare as above, except do not cut roll of dough into slices. Pinch ends of dough closed, tuck under. Place in a greased 7 1/2 X 3 1/2 X 2 -inch loaf pan. Let rise and bake as directed. Drizzle with icing. Makes 1 loaf (12 slices).
