  • 2 3/4 cups - Flour, plus 2 Tablespoons
  • 1/4 cups - Sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons - Active dry yeast, 1 packet
  • 1/2 teaspoons - Salt
  • 4 tablespoons - Butter
  • 1/3 cups - Milk
  • 1/4 cups - Water
  • 1 teaspoons - Pure Vanilla extract
  • 2 - Eggs, at room temperature
  • Filling
  • 1 cups - Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons - Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoons - Nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons - Butter, melted
  • Directions:

    In a large mixing bowl, mix 2 cups of flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Set aside.

    In a small sauce pan, melt the butter and milk. Once the butter is completely melted take off the burner and add the water and vanilla. Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes.
    Pour the milk mixture into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. Whisk together the eggs and add to the batter. Keep mixing. Add 3/4 cup of flour and mix well. The mixture will be very sticky which means it's perfect. Place the dough in a medium greased bowl. Cover with wrap and let it sit in a warm place to rise for about 30-45 minutes. Once the dough has doubled its size, knead in 2 tablespoons of flour. Cover the dough again for 5-10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, start on the filling. In a medium bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. Set aside.

    Once the dough is ready, roll it out on a floured surface. Brush the melted butter on the dough and add the sugar mixture. Make sure everything is covered. Using a shape knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into equal sized strips (about 2 to 2 1/2 inches wide). Then cut the strips into equal sized squares. Stack the squares on top of each other to make 3 to 4 piles and place them in a bread pan. Take any sugar that fell off squares and sprinkle over the top and around the sides of dough. Cover the dough for another 10-15 minutes to rise.

    While dough is rising, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place a cookie sheet under bread pan and bake for 30-35 minutes until outside of bread is golden brown.
