Cinnamon Rolls

INGREDIENTS
1 tbsp yeast
1/2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup boiling water
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
4-5 cups flour

DIRECTIONS

Jane’s Amazingly Good Bread

7 cups warm water 3⁄4 cup honey
4 tsp salt
1⁄2 cup oil
7 cups white flour
4 tbsp instant yeast
dough enhancer (optional)
7 cups wheat flour
additional white and wheat flour

Combine water, honey, salt and oil in Bosh mixer. Add white flour and mix on speed 1. While mixing, add yeast (and dough enhancer per product recommendation, if desired). Add wheat flour and then alternate white and wheat flour until the dough clings to dough hooks and cleans sides and bottom of bowl. Lock lid into place and set speed at 3. Allow dough to knead for 10 minutes. (If after ten minutes of kneading the dough sticks to the sides of the bowl, set speed on Bosh mixer to 1 and slowly add flour until dough cleans the side of the bowl. Additional kneading is not necessary.)

Grease six bread pans with cooking spray. Grease clean counter with +/-3 tbsp oil. With oiled hands, remove dough hook and place dough on greased counter. Handling the dough as little as possible; form 6 equal loaves (the more you handle it the tougher your bread will be). Rotate sides of each loaf under to make a smooth top. Roll loaf in oil on counter and place in loaf pan. Spray plastic wrap with non-stick cooking spray and place over top of loaves to keep dough from drying and cracking while rising. Allow dough to rise, just over doubling in size.

Bake at 350º for 20-30 minutes. The bread is done when the top crust is browned and the bottom crust is golden brown. (You can check for doneness by lightly tapping the bread on the bottom. It should make a hollow sound.) Allow bread to cool completely on wire racks. With a greased hand, lightly oil the top of each loaf.
