Ingredients

Making the dough ~

  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 tbls. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour

Making the mixture for topping the dough ~

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon

Glaze ~

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tbls milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

  • Heat the milk in a small saucepan to hot but not scalding.
  • Pour the milk into a mixing bowl and add the yeast. Stir until dissolved and let stand for 5 minutes until the mixture gets foamy.
  • Add the egg, melted butter, sugar and salt to the yeast mixture and beat until combined.
  • Add half of the flour and mix with a dough hook for 3 minutes to combine.
  • Add in the remaining flour and mix until the flour is combined.
  • Shape the dough into a ball and place into an oiled bowl. This is a soft dough and it will not have a smooth finish on it.
  • Cover the bowl and let the dough rise for an hour or until doubled in size. You can refrigerate the dough overnight or up to 2 days

Making the stacks and strips ~

  • Butter a 9"x5" bread pan.
  • Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface to 20"x12" rectangle.
  • Brush the dough with the melted butter, then sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Cut the dough crosswise into five 12"x4" strips. Stack the strips on top of each other.
  • Cut the long strip into 4"x2" stacks. (That's the fun part)
  • Place the stacks in the bread pan, cut side down and let rise about 45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the bread for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes and place on a serving plate.
  • Drizzle with the glaze and enjoy.
