We've had snow the past few days which means board games and fires in the fireplace and goodies. Along with toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate, we made a batch of homemade elephant ears that made our eyes rolls back in our heads. They were SO good. The bonus is that the bread machine does nearly all of the work. And to add SOME sort of nutrition I do add some bran and ground flax to the mix.
Bread Machine Elephant Ears
Add to your bread machine on the dough cycle:
- 1/2 cup milk
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 Tablespoon canola oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 3 cups flour (I do 1 cup WW flour and 2 cups white)
- 2 teaspoons yeast
When cycle is done turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 2 inch strips and cut the strips into squares. Cover and let rest for about 10 minutes. Heat oil to360 degrees in a pan. Gently lower the dough into the oil. When golden brown on one side, turn and cook the other side. Remove from oil and let drain on paper towels. When cool brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
