  • Can I use bread flour?

    Yes! You can substitute all-purpose flour for bread flour in a 1:1 ratio.

  • How do I know if the dough has risen enough?

    To make sure your dough has risen well, just do a poke test: Gently press two fingertips into the dough about half an inch. If there is still an indent when you remove your fingertip, the dough is ready.

  • shortcut:

    In a hurry and no time to make your own dough? Many grocery stores sell premade bread dough. You can also use frozen dough or canned bread dough, including canned cookie dough. Note that the cookie dough will change the texture of the bread. This recipe calls for about 30 ounces (1.875 pounds) of dough.

  • in a bowl stand mixer, mix warm milk, yeast, sugar, salt, butter and eggs. Add 2 1/2 cups of flour.Using the dough hook, turn mixer to low speed. Once the flour begins to incorporate into the dough, increase the speed to medium. Slowly add remaining 1/2 cup flour until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. The dough mixture should be slightly viscous and soft. Add more or less flour until the dough reaches the desired consistency. The amount of flour you add when making bread is always an approximation and should be determined by feel.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly greased mixing bowl. Cover with a towel and ferment for 90 minutes, until doubled in volume.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch skillet.

  • Pinch out a tablespoon-sized amount of dough and roll into a ball. Roll the cinnamon-sugar mixture into the coating and place in the prepared pan, layering them as you go, until all the dough is used.

  • Melt 1/2 cup of butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add nuts. Pour caramel sauce over dough balls in pan.

  • Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes.

  • Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then invert the pan onto a large platter or platter. Serve hot, or let cool and serve after cooling completely.
