This is my favorite time of the year. I don't know why.....I love spring, I love winter....I even love summer (my least favorite)....but Autumn is my MOST favorite!! That being said....it's very important for me to be careful.....and here's why.
I especially LOVE to bake. I love the awesome smells that come from the oven when my concoctions are coming to life. I love that the kitchen doesn't get too hot to work in.... and I LOVE how something yummy makes everyone SOOOO happy!
Oh...I didn't mention, but they are actually kinda healthy!! Made with fresh ground whole wheat :)
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp. salt
enough whole wheat flour to make a soft dough. I think I use about 5-6 cups total
3 & 1/2 tsp saff yeast (or your favorite fast rising yeast)
In a heavy duty mixer, combine water, oil and honey. I use "Real" salt, so I put it in with liquids. Add about 3 cups flour, then the yeast. Mix together, then add enough flour to make a soft dough. Mix for about 8 minutes. Let rise till double (about 30 min.). Turn dough out onto a work surface and roll into a large rectangle. (about 10x20ish) Spread with 1/2 cup + 2 Tblsp melted butter mixed with 1 lb. brown sugar and 1-2 tsp. cinamon. Roll up jelly roll style. cut into about 2 inch slices and place on a cookie sheet with sides. (I spray my pan with Pam).
Bake at 375 for 15-20 min.
Take out of oven and plate while warm. Top with icing:
2 cups powdered sugar+1/4 milk or Orange Juice
Just spread this on with no attention to moderation :)
