Blueberry Buns With Vanilla Icing
A gerat bread machine recipe to try !
* 1 cup milk, lukewarm
* 1 large egg, room temperature
* 2 teaspoons vanilla
* 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/3 cup granulated sugar
* 1 scant teaspoon salt
* 4 tablespoons softened butter
* 3 to 4 ounces (3/4 to 1 cup) dried blueberries
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 2 tablespoons water
* 1 egg yolk
* 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
* 1 tablespoon butter
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 tablespoons hot water or milk, plus more for consistency
Grease a 9-inch square or round baking pan.
Whisk milk with egg and vanilla. Add milk mixture, flour, sugar, salt, butter, and yeast, in the order suggested by your bread machine manufacturer.
Set on dough cycle and add the blueberries and cinnamon at the beep for adding ingredients. If the dough seems very sticky (or very dry) at this point, add a bit of flour (or water) in very small amounts.
On a floured surface, punch the dough down. Break off pieces of dough and shape into balls. Place side-by side in the prepared pan. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes. Heat oven to 350°. Beat the egg yolk with 2 tablespoons of water and brush lightly over the tops of the buns. Bake the blueberry buns for 20 to 25 minutes, until nicely browned.
For icing, put confectioners' sugar in a bowl. In a microwave-proof cup or small bowl, combine butter with water and vanilla. Microwave until butter is melted and mixture is very hot. Pour into the confectioners' sugar and mix until well blended and smooth. Add very small amounts of hot water until you get a good drizzling consistency. I put the mixture in a squeeze bottle and warm again in the microwave before drizzling over the buns, but you can drizzle with a spoon.
The bread machine recipe is ready...nice ! Enjoy the bread !
