2 tbs melted butter
1 cup (236ml) warm milk
1/3 cup (79ml) warm water
1/4 cup (50g) white sugar
2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
3 1/4 cup (416g) flour
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (113g) melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
To create a warm environment for your dough to rise, preheat the oven to 122 degrees F (50 degree C). Then turn off when oven is heated.
In a medium bowl, mix warm milk, water, melted butter, sugar and yeast.
Using either a stand mixer with an oiled dough hook or by hand, add flour and salt into the mixer bowl. Starting with the lowest speed, slowly add the milk mixture.
Increase the speed to medium when a dough starts to form. Let the mixer work the dough for another 6-7 mins till the dough becomes smooth and shiny (If you are doing this by hand, mix all the ingredients in a bowl and knead for about 10mins till a smooth shiny ball forms). The dough should be ready when it springs back after you poke it with your finger.
Pour the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly to form a smooth round ball.
Place the dough in a well oiled bowl, cover and place it in the oven for about 45-60mins The dough should double in size.
In the meantime, melt the butter. In another bowl mix sugar and cinnamon.
When the dough is ready, pull apart pieces of dough and roll them into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. This should yield about 64 balls.
Dip each ball in butter first, followed by the sugar mixture. Then place them in a well butter bundt. Making sure that the layers are staggered.
Cover the bundt and return to the over and let it rise for another 45-50 mins.
Preheat over to 350 degree f (175 degree c). Then bake for about 25-30mins, till bread is golden on top.
