Breads/Muffins, Breakfast, Kid-Friendly Dishes, Vegetarian
¾ c milk
⅓ c Smart Balance Light butter, softened
3¼ cups all purpose flour
2 tsp active dry yeast
¼ c sugar
½ tsp salt
¼ c egg beaters
¼ c water
1 c jam (flavor of your choice, I used strawberry)
½ tsp cinnamon
1 c strawberries, sliced
1 c blackberries, halved
3/4 cup powdered sugar
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp milk
1. In a small sauce pan, heat milk and butter over medium low heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and bring to room temperature.
2. In a stand mixer bowl, combine 2 ¼ c flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add egg and water and mix well using paddle attachment. Pour in milk/butter mixture and mix until dry ingredients are incorporated into wet.
3. Switch to dough hook and add in remaining 1 c flour. Mix on low speed until flour is mixed in then kneed on medium speed for 5 minutes.
4. Cover bowl with damp towel and allow dough to rest for 10 minutes.
5. Turn dough out onto flour dusted counter top (if dough is still sticky, work in a little bit more flour with the palms of our hands). Using a rolling pin, roll dough out to a large rectangle of about 1/8″ thickness.
6. Spread jam evenly over rolled out dough. Top with strawberries and black berries. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
7. Beginning at short end, roll dough tightly into a log. Pinch ends and along the seam to seal the dough. Cut into 12 equal slices and place cut side up in a greased baking pan or dish.
8. Cover with a dry towel and allow to rise for 30 minutes.
9. Preheat oven to 375. When finished rising, bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
10. While rolls are baking, make glaze topping. Combine powdered sugar, cinnamon, and 1 to 1½ tbsp milk in a small dish. It may be necessary to add a few drops more of milk to reach desired consistency for glaze. *After adding the initial tbsp of milk, add just the smallest drops at a time when trying to reach desired consistency, as a little bit of liquid can take glaze from stiff to soup very easily.
11. When rolls come out of oven, allow to cool for about 5 minutes. Drizzle with glaze as desired. Enjoy!
