So far, I've made 6 batches and the recipe has been sucessful each time. To help my back out, now I roll them out on my glass top stove which actually works out great! Amy over at New Nostalgia inspired me to make this wonderful recipe (go have a peak at her gorgeous kitchen).
1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C) (warm in microwave 45 sec)
2 eggs, room temperature (put them in glass of warm water 30 sec to bring to temp)
1/3 cup margarine, melted (I used unsalted butter)
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar (I used Stevia in the Raw)
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon (I used Saigon Cinnamon)
1/3 cup butter, softened
Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
