Step 1

Place dough ingredients in bread machine pan in order listed. Set on Dough cycle, press start

Step 2

During the first mixing check to assure your dough has the right amount of flour and liquid- dough should look nice and shiny. Flours differ so you may need to add lukewarm water a teaspoon at a time if it is too dry - a sprinkling of flour if too sticky. Never add more then 3 tablespoons of either the flour or the water

Step 3

In small bowl melt butter in microwave, in a second bowl mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside

Step 4

When bread cycle complete, remove dough punch down. Divide into equal pieces about the size of a walnut, roll each piece into a smooth ball

Step 5

Roll each ball in melted butter then in cinnamon-sugar mix. Place in greased bundt pan, repeat layers. Sprinkle chopped pecans between layers

Step 6

Mix remaining butter and sugar together, pour over top. Cover, let rise in a warm draft free place, 30 to 45 minutes

Step 7

Bake at 350 for about 40 - 45 minutes or until nicely browned and done (ovens vary)

Step 8

Cool in pan for 5 minutes on a wire rack. Invert on serving plate after the five minute cool

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



These are so very gooda! Not too sweet and just the right amount of stickiness to make you want more! I did not use the breadmaker, opting to make by hand instead. Can't wait to make for the grandchildren. Thank you Gerry for sharing another of your wonderful recipes. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
