Breads and Muffins: Breads

Cinnamon Twists

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons egg substitute or beaten egg
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon rapid rise or bread machine yeast
Filling:
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons less-fat margarine or whipped butter, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preparation:

  1. Add milk, canola oil, egg substitute, whole-wheat flour, white flour, sugar, and salt to bread machine pan. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour the yeast in there.
  2. Set bread machine to DOUGH cycle and press start.
  3. After about 1 hour and 40 minutes, the bread machine will finish. Place the dough on a long sheet of waxed paper lightly dusted with flour. Roll the dough into a 10-inch x 14-inch rectangle. Spread the margarine or whipped butter over the top.
  4. Add brown sugar and cinnamon to a small bowl and blend well. Sprinkle evenly over the margarine-topped dough. Let the dough rest about 8 minutes. Cut the rectangle into 14 strips (about 1 inch wide). Fold the top end of each strip down to meet with the bottom end and then twist it a few times. Place the twisted strips on a jellyroll pan covered with nonstick foil that has been coated with canola cooking spray.
  5. Cover with a towel, if necessary, and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 40 minutes). Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake until golden brown, or about 15-18 minutes.
