Yield: 24 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup warm water (110-115 F)
  • 1/4 cup instant dry milk
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1¾ cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1¾ cup whole wheat flour, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • liquid sugar substitute
  • 1 ½ teaspoon margarine at room temp
  • ½ cup sugar substitute
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon margarine, room temp

Preparation:

  1. Place water, dry milk, and yeast in mixer bowl; mix lightly and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Add 1½ cup flour to liquid.
  3. Mix at medium speed, using dough hook for 4 minutes.
  4. Add ginger, oil, salt, cinnamon, sweetener, and 1½ cups flour to batter and mix at low speed, using dough hook, for another 4 minutes. Use as much of the remaining flour as necessary to make a smooth, resilient dough.
  5. Shape the dough into a ball and place in a bowl that has been well greased with margarine.
  6. Turn the ball over to coat the top with margarine. Cover with a cloth and set in a warm place until doubled in volume.
  7. Turn dough onto a lightly floured working surface and knead lightly. Form into a ball and return to greased bowl, turning the top again to cover it with margarine.
  8. Cover with a cloth and set in a warm place until doubled in volume.
  9. Use 1½ teaspoons margarine to grease the sides and bottom of a 9 by 13 cake pan. Set aside for later use.
  10. Turn dough onto a lightly floured working surface. Knead lightly and form into a ball. Cover with a cloth and let rest 10 minutes.
  11. Roll dough out to form a 9 by 16 inch rectangle. Spread the softened 1½ Tablespoons of margarine evenly over the dough. Sprinkle evenly with the sugar substitute and cinnamon mixture.
  12. Roll into a long roll and cut into 24 equal slices.
  13. Place the slices, cut side down, in the cake pan, spacing them evenly. Cover with a cloth and let rise until double in volume. Bake at 375 F for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  14. Turn rolls out of the pan onto a wire rack and serve warm!
