My friend and I made this bread yesterday for my radiation techs. We made it in the bread machine on the dough cycle. It is a gooey dough so don't be alarmed. It asks for 6 cups of flour and we ended up using 7...You will just have to see how your dough looks. My techs were so excited to get some homemade bread. I didn't stay long enough to ask if they liked it. My family all gave it a thumbs up.

So is it sweet enough to make it a dessert bread? Do you think you could add Pineapple as well or would it be too much? Man these look so good!! Last time I attempted bread my friends dubbed it Armageddon bread because it could have been used as a weapon of mass destruction during a major wartime event! Actually, when I tried to tip it out of the pan, it fell onto my granite cutting board and snapped it... I was trying to see if you were making low carb bread, if you could use the same amount of low cab type flour in place of regular.... uhhhh that would be a negatory ghost rider!!

Just made these for my fourth time. This time I used fresh ground ginger, instead of powdered ginger. Big difference! Also used half vanilla and half orange extracts. The flavor is phenomenal! :-) Also like to bake them on my half sheet pan. Made 24 rolls.

I made these rolls in my sheet pan instead of cake pans. They came out awesome. I also added salt by instinct, since yeast needs it to stop its growth. To compliment these rolls I used a compound butter made with fresh Basil and lemon zest to top them off!
