  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1. In bread machine pan, place the first 11 ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting. Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1-2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed.

"Very good and not as time-consuming as I thought it would be. I did use half bread flour which I don't recommend because it is not as light of a bread. Still very tasty though."

"Worth a little wait while the bread machine does the hard work for you. Pillowy, flavorful bread. Sauce is just the right amount of sticky. This will be part of our Christmas Eve buffet and it has already been requested for Thanksgiving."
