I want to try converting this recipe to the bread machine if possible. My recipe calls for 1 cup warm milk. Is that okay to use in the machine? Also, it calls for 1/4 cup shortening. Do I substitute oil for the shortening? Any help will be appreciated!
KalRue: Need a little bit more information on other ingredients. 1 cup of milk would probably be fine.
Here is the Yeast rolls that I have made into Cinnamon Rolls:
Breadmachine Dinner Rolls
1 C water*, room temp
2 T softened butter
1 large egg
1/4 C sugar
1 t salt
3 1/4 C bread flour**
3 t yeast (active dry - maybe less for instant yeast)
Use dough cycle. After making rolls let rise about 30 minutes. (Sometimes I put them covered in the refrigerator overnight and bake the next day. They rise some in the refrigerator so rising time would be when doubled in size. Bake at 375°F for 12 - 15 minutes.
**You could probably use all purpose flour since you have more control over the rising, etc.
I do not know why you couldn't use *milk as I sometimes add 2 T dry instant milk to lots of recipes that call for water. I don't know about the 1/4 cup of shortening. I hope this helps.
If your breadmachine will handle the ingredients in your recipe I would think it would work.
I use warm milk in my bread machine. The amount depends on the amount of flour. I would use butter or margarine in place of the shortening.
My bread machine is a 2 lb loaf max size.
For converting recipes this is what I do.
For each cup of flour use: 3 ounces liquid, 1/2 tbsp fat, scant 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 tablespoon sweetener, 1/2 tsp active dry or bread/fast rise yeast. I've used this formula for baking bread and for using the dough cycle and things have turned out well.
I don't use more than the max amount of flour recommended even when using the dough cycle to ensure sufficient kneading and mixing. My machine is 4 cups flour for the 2 lb loaf and 3 1/3 cups flour for the 1 1/2 lb loaf. If using whole wheat, or adding cereals or oats then it is 4 1/2 cups total for a 2 lb loaf and 3 1/2 cups total for a 1 1/2 lb loaf.
All that being said, you can use a white bread recipe (for bread machine) on the dough cycle and then follow your cinnamon roll recipe for the rest. I have done that and it works for me, too.
Hope some of this helps.

I use warm milk in my recipe also. I warm the milk in the microwave and I use butter crisco for my shortening. I put the shortening in the milk and let it melt a little before putting it in the bread machine. It works great.
Thanks for this info;can always use extra tips on bread baking
