Amora Coffee & Cinnamon Rolls

Please note I was sent samples of this product in exchange for the blog post.  All photos and opinions are my own.
Cold weather makes me want to drink coffee all the more just to stay warm.  And the holidays bring lots of yummy food that is easy to pair with coffee so its a perfect storm for a coffee addict like me.  I am sampling Amora Coffee this week and their Chocolate Cherry Blend.  I also have been baking up lots of Cinnamon Rolls in my kitchen this week to freeze and then bake and serve later.  Now I know what your thinking who has time to mix and knead dough when there are so many other things to do right now???  Easy answer.... my bread machine does all the work.  But, I'll get to that in a minute.

Amora Coffee was started in 2011 as a way to bring fresh roasted coffee to your door within days of it being roasted.  It doesn't get much fresher than that.  They have a 9 stage roasting process that is done in small batches which again maximizes the freshness.  They offer 4 blends of coffee and right now 4 flavors.  Amora coffee does offer a subscription service so you can have their coffee delivered right to your door.
As I mentioned I sampled their the Chocolate Cherry Blend and as soon as I opened the package I could smell the distinct flavors of Chocolate and Cherry.  Once brewed and tasted you could almost swear their were cherry cordials hiding in the bottom of your mug somewhere the taste was that good.   Just imagine how good this coffee will taste after your Christmas Dinner or a New Year's Day brunch. 

Now to my recipe for cinnamon rolls.  Like I mentioned with cards to address, gifts to wrap and school functions to get to who has time to knead dough, let it rise, knead some more.. you get the picture.  My bread machine made this amazing rolls.  All I did was dump in the ingredients and push start.  Then for the next hour and half I put my feet up and watched a Christmas movie.  They are fluffy and moist and taste awesome as is (or you could add some icing.)
1 cup soy milk (110 degrees)
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
4 1/2 cups bread flour
2 1/2 tsp. bread machine yeast
Filling: 1/2 cup applesauce, 3 T. Sugar, 3 T. Cinnamon

1.) Add wet ingredients to bread machine pan.
2.) Add dry ingredients to bread machine pan.
3.) Turn to dough setting.
4.) Once done roll out dough, sprinkle filling ingredients, roll up and cut into 2 inch rolls.
5.) Place on a greased 9x13 baking pan and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
