Maple syrup sweetens these lovely little cinnamon buns. I make the dough in my bread machine before popping the rolls in the oven. My husband prefers them warm. —Juanita Carlsen, North Bend, Oregon

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons bread flour
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter
  • MAPLE ICING:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons whole milk

Directions

  1. In bread machine pan, place the first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or bread flour if needed).
  2. When the cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into two 12x7-in. rectangles. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle half over each rectangle. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting from a long side; pinch seam to seal.
  3. Cut each roll into 12 slices. Place cut side down in one greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, syrup and enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Spread over warm rolls.
To make dough without a bread machine, dissolve yeast in warm milk (110°-115°). In a large bowl, combine maple syrup, butter, egg, salt, yeast mixture and 1 cup flour; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down. Proceed with recipe as directed.
