12 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar (brown or
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Rapid Rise yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1 egg white
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dates
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dates
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup               Directions:
  • To make the dough, mix
    unbleached flour, sugar, yeast, and salt, and set aside.
  • Place the applesauce in a small
    saucepan, and heat until 125-130 degrees F. Add applesauce to flour
    mixture, and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the egg white.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the whole
    wheat flour to the dough, and stir well. Continue to add the flour in
    2-tablespoons portions until a stiff dough is formed.
  • Knead dough for 5 minutes on a
    flat surface sprinkled with 2 tablespoons of flour. Gradually add enough
    of the remaining flour to form a smooth, satiny ball of dough.
  • Scrape the surface, and sprinkle
    it with flour. Return the dough to the surface. Use a rolling pin to roll
    the dough into a 10-x-12-inch rectangle. Combine 2 tablespoons of maple
    syrup and the cinnamon, and spread the mixture over the dough to within
    1/2 inch of the edges. Sprinkle the raisins and/or dates over the syrup,
    and roll the rectangle up jelly-roll style.
  • Lightly coat a 9-inch round pan
    with nonstick cooking spray (nonfat), and pour 1/3 cup of maple syrup over
    the bottom of the pan. Cut rolled-up dough into 1-inch slices. Lay slices
    in the pan, cut side up, spacing them 1/2 inch part. Cover the pan with a
    kitchen towel, and let rise in a warm place for about 30-35 minutes.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 20
    minutes, or until lightly browned. To loosen the rolls, run a knife around
    the edge of the pan. Immediately place the rolls onto a plate. Serve warm.
