Thank goodness David’s elimination diet does NOT include wheat or gluten. Since his favorite breakfast is oatmeal and cottage cheese he was very sad to learn he could not have oats for awhile. Since he cannot have corn or soy or egg products either, breakfast choices have been very slim. On day 2, I knew I needed to make him some homemade bread with no forbidden ingredients, then at the last minute I decided to use the same dough and make some cinnamon rolls, let the girls make dinner rolls and then just make a smaller amount of bread.
I decided to let David help with the Cinnamon rolls and they turned out beautiful and delicious!
This should have been enough to make five loaves of bread, but this is what we ended up with instead:
Then take about 2 pounds of dough (about 1.5 loaves worth) and roll it into a flat rectangle on an oiled surface. Then, melt some butter and brush it generously over the dough. Take about 3/4 cup of brown sugar OR honey and spread it over the dough and butter. Sprinkle cinnamon over the dough. Roll this carefully into one long log. Slice the log in about 3/4 inch sized pieces to form rolls. Place rolls on pan and let rise, covered in oiled or sprayed plastic wrap. These take longer to rise than normal bread (about an hour) then bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. I never can remember the exact amount of time, so set the timer for 20 and check at that point to see if they are ready.
And here is how David felt about getting these yummy cinnamon rolls for snack and breakfast:
