Dough Cycles

Ask the Test Kitchen

I would like to make the Mini Maple Cinnamon Rolls in the April/May ’06 issue of Taste of Home, but I’m unsure of when to remove the dough from the bread machine. The recipe says to remove the dough when the cycle is completed, but I’m not sure what that means. Please help! —C.P., Pritchard, British ColumbiaYeast breads that are shaped, like cinnamon rolls or breadsticks, are removed from the bread machine after the first rise. The dough is then shaped and allowed to rise one last time before baking. Most bread machines have a dough setting that will stop or beep at the end of the cycle, signaling that the first rise is completed and the dough is ready to be removed.

If your bread machine does not have this option, you will need to keep a close eye on it and remove the dough after the first rise or refer to your owner’s manual to determine when the first rise ends.
