Recipe Theme
Central Alabama EC
Dough: your machine must have a dough setting
6 ounces milk, 90-100 degrees F.
1 large egg (at room temperature)
3 cups bread flour
3 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons butter or margarine at room temperature
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
or 1 1/2 teaspoon fast-rise bread machine yeast
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
1 cup powdered sugar
1 or 2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
* My machine requires liquids first-but follow the directions on your particular machine.
Add milk and egg to pan; next add flour, sugar and salt. Tap pan to settle ingredients, level them, then push a small amount into corners. Place one tablespoon butter in each corner of pan; make a small well in center of dry ingredients and add yeast. Lock pan into bread maker and set program for dough. Start bread maker when done (about one hour and 20 minutes). Remove pan and place dough on floured surface. Knead dough about one minute; let rest for 15 minutes; then roll dough into a 10x15-inch rectangle. Spread 1/3 cup melted butter over dough to within one inch of edges; sprinkle 1/3 cup sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and chopped nuts evenly over dough. Roll dough up tightly on long side. press edges to seal and form into a 12-inch long, evenly shaped roll. Use a 12-inch length of dental floss to cut roll into 12, one inch thick slices (slide dental floss under roll,pull ends up, cross on top then pull ends to neatly cut through dough. Place into a greased 13x9-inch pan; cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30-45 minutes until golden. Cool in pan on rack for 10-15 minutes and drizzle with powdered sugar icing.
Combine one cup powdered sugar with one or two tablespoons milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Blend until smooth (if too thin add more sugar, if too thin add more milk) until desired consistency; drizzle over rolls, cut apart and remove from pan.
Conventional Method:
sprinkle yeast over warmth milk in large bowl and let stand five minutes. add sugar, salt and egg and stir until blended. Cut butter into small pieces and add to mixture. stir in flour and turn out onto a lightly floured board; knead until smooth (about five minutes). Roll out to a 10x15-inch rectangle and proceed as instructed above.
