day 259
Trying out a new recipe, and mmmmmmm were they ever good!


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 tsp active dry or rapid rise yeast
2/3 cup warm milk (100-110F; low fat is fine)
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 tbsp butter, room temperature
2/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch ground cardamom
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp milk or cream

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Dissolve the yeast in a measuring cup filled with the warmed milk, then stir milk mixture, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and egg into the flour mixture. Mix well, until very smooth. Pour into prepared pan and let rest for 15 minutes. While the dough rests, mix together butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and cardamom in a small bowl using a fork until all the butter has been incorporated into the sugar and mixture is crumbly. Divide the batter between 12 greased muffin cups. Sprinkle evenly on top of rested dough and press the mixture down into the dough with your fingertips (or swirl in with a spatula) Place pan into a cold oven, then set the oven temperature to 350F. Bake for about 20 minutes, until bread is lightly browned at the edges and the center of the bread springs back when lightly pressed. Some of the sugar mixture on top may still be bubbling. Cool for at least 30 minutes before whisking the powdered sugar and milk together to form an icing and drizzling it onto the bread. Serve warm.

Just found the recipe for the cinnamon roll muffins, thanks Rebecca - should have finished looking through all the photos first before asking for the recipe ;o)

When you say divide the batter between 12 muffin cups, do you mean the dough batter (with the yeast in it?). I've never made anything using dough and am not too sure how it all works. Also, putting it into a prepared pan, do you need to grease the pan or something so it doesn't stick while it rises. Does the dough need to be knocked back at all? Sorry for all the questions, I'm keen to try the recipe but want to know I'm understanding it properly.
Thanks, Rhona

you've got it right Rhona, you prepare the dough and then when it is ready to bake you place it in 12 muffin cups or however many it will fit in really...it will just depend on the size of your muffin pan. and yes you prepare the pans ahead of time by greasing them - I used butter

:) hope that helps
