- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/2 cup warm milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 3/4 cups bread flour
- 2 tbsp active dry yeast
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Place ingredients in bread maker in order listed. Choose Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle. (approximately 30 minutes, depending on machine)
- When the first rise cycle finishes, divide dough in half and place on floured surface. Roll each half into a large circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges, and roll up wedges starting at the wide end. Let rise 1 hour, covered and in a warm location.
- Bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Rolls should be golden/lightly browned when complete. (If desired, rub tops with butter while still hot.
I grew up thinking that bread makers/bread machines were for culinary wimps and that bread machine recipes weren’t true recipes. (Yes, please laugh at me. If only this were the worst of my narrow-mindedness…) A few months back my friend passed along an extra bread maker. Well, it turns out I was the wimp and failed to even use the bread maker much until fall. Thankfully, Hana Kate, the homemaking-obsessed, loves to bake bread. Every. single. day. So, we are making it every other day, thanks to finally figuring out a good crescent rolls recipe. Thanks to the ease and taste of making these rolls, I’m not so Ludditish anymore when it comes to the breadmaker.
That was in December. We’ve slowed our breadmaking a little since then. But I’m keeping up the Christmassy picture, because I just love the bokeh in this photo. As of this month, I can now upload pictures via my own computer, so I have lots of pictures to organize and put on here…and lots of recipes to write down before I forget!
