How to Make It

Step 1

Weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, salt, and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer with dough hook attached; mix until combined. With mixer on, slowly add 1 cup milk, juice, honey, and 2 tablespoons butter; mix dough at medium speed 7 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in size. (Gently press two fingers into dough. If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.)

Step 2

Combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a shallow dish. Combine 3 tablespoons milk and 2 tablespoons butter in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

Punch dough down; divide into 8 equal portions. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough to prevent drying), roll into an 8-inch rope. Cut each dough rope into 8 equal pieces, shaping each piece into a 1-inch ball. Dip each ball in milk mixture, turning to coat, and roll in sugar mixture. Layer balls in a 12-cup Bundt pan coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining 7 dough ropes. Sprinkle any remaining sugar mixture over dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until almost doubled in size.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 5

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 minutes on a wire rack. Place a plate upside down on top of bread; invert onto plate. Combine powdered sugar, remaining milk, and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Microwave at HIGH 20 seconds or until warm. Drizzle over bread.

@cookingcurrie The cream cheese goes in the sauce on top of the bread. At the end of the recipe it says, " Combine powdered sugar, remaining milk, and remaining ingredients in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Microwave at HIGH 20 seconds or until warm. Drizzle over bread." The cream cheese ingredient is part of the "remaining ingredients". Hope that helps clarify things.

Let me just say this is dangerously delicious. I ate probably half of it after it came out of the oven. So good. It was time consuming waiting for each rise. So I probably won't make it often b/c of the time (and my waistline). But great to bring for a party or brunch.

Has anyone added the cream cheese? The recipe has it as an ingredient but not sure where/when it is added. For that reason I gave it a one star.

Great recipe! I was looking for something different for christmas morning and am glad I found this. Instead of butter, I used canola oil. And since I had no brown sugar, I used black strap molasses. I didnt have a bundt pan either, so used 2 round cake pans. And it is perfect without the sweet topping.
