Preparation

  1. Load your bread machine as directed by the manufacturer. (For example, I’m supposed to load my bread machine with the liquid ingredients first, then dry, followed by the flour and yeast last. I listed the ingredients in the order that I would put them into my machine, but be sure follow the directions specific to your own.)
  2. Once it’s loaded, plug it in and set it to the “dough” setting. Sit back and relax! If you're itching for something to do, combine your spices and sugars in a bowl for the filling: sugars, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Set it aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8x8 inch pan with coconut oil.
  4. Sprinkle some flour on a flat surface. Once the bread machine is through its cycle, take the dough out and pat it down so the dough is covered in flour. Roll it out to about 1/2 inch in thickness. I used a pastry cutter (or you can use a pizza cutter) to trim the dough – you can if you want to. It makes the rolls a little more uniform and better for pictures.
  5. Spread the softened butter out evenly across the dough and then sprinkle the spice mix on top.  Roll it out into a log and slice; I sliced mine into eight rolls.  Place the rolls in the pan and cover the pan with plastic wrap.
  6. Let the rolls rise in a warm place for 20-30 minutes.  After, remove the plastic and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. You can mix some powdered sugar and a bit of almond milk to make a glaze. Drizzle it over the rolls.
  8. Serve warm and enjoy!
