Brand new Cuisinart Breadmaker!

Happy New Year!! And good eats to all!! I've been so busy the last couple of weeks so there's alot to catch up on. I'll be posting my delicious holiday meals soon...even if it is a bit late...
Anyway, I certainly wasn't planning on buying a breadmaker. I've always wanted a breadmaker but was wary about the cost. Also the thought of another appliance on the kitchen counter made me cringe.

However just before our trip to Florida I bought a double screen portable DVD player and after returning it twice due to malfunctions I decided that I would exchange it for something else. It was a difficult decision...Ab Rocket...Cuisinart Convection love of carbs won out and I skipped happily out of the store.

I tried my first recipe today and was shocked and happily surprised at the results. I decided to make a sweet dough. I measured out all the ingredients carefully and followed the intructions.

Here are the results.
Dinner rolls
Cinnamon Rolls

The kids loved the cinnamon rolls and I gobbled a couple of small dinner rolls as soon as they came out of the oven. I can see this becoming a love/hate relationship. Love the rolls but hate my waistline.

Here is the recipe straight from the Cuisinart Owner's Manual.

Basic Sweet Dough

3 Eggs (Room temperature)

1/4 Cup plus 3 1/2 Tablespoons Water

6 Tbsp Sour Cream

6 Tbsp Butter cut into 1/2 inch pieces

6 Tbsp Granulated Sugar

4 1/2 Cups Bread Flour (I used all-purpose flour and the results were great)

1 Tbsp Yeast (active, dry, instant or bread machine)

Please all ingredients in order shown in to the bread pan with paddle. Select Dough/Pizza dough. Once the machine goes through the cycle, remove dough from pan, punch to deflate and let sit for 10 minutes. Use dough for your favourite breakfast/brunch breads.


  1. I got mine from the cuisinart sale in December for only $50!!

  2. Having a bread maker is indeed a perfect helping hand in making buns...hope i can get my bread maker soon..

  3. Congratulations! Your dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls are beautiful! Much more fun than an AbRocket!
