Here is what I put into my bread machine to have a quick and easy sweet dough. With this you can make rolls, cinnamon rolls, sticky buns, sweet petals, danishes, and more.
Put the following into the bread machine in the order listed:
- 1 cup water
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 egg
- 3 1/3 cup flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tsp. active dry yeast or bread machine yeast
set your machine for dough only cycle. You can use the dough after the machine beeps that it is done raising. OR you can take the dough out of the machine before the dough raises and put it in a plastic bag in the refridgerator to raise over night. Then take it out in the morning t use in your recipe. It will take a little longer to raise, since it needs to get to room temperature.
I also make this dough and freeze it to have on hand. If I remember, I put it into the fridge the night before to start defrosting. Or set it on a shelf for a while then let it finish in the fridge. It will puff up overnight, just deflate it and start your recipe.
