    Reserve 52 g of sugar and 175 g of sugar, the rest use for dough. Also reserve molasses, 1 tsp of rum extract, and rum for syrup.

    Use 40 g of fresh yeast or 16-22g of dried yeast. Prepare the dough: dissolve yeast in 260 ml of lukewarm water and mix it with 260 g of flour. Let raise for 40-50 min (t = 25-30C).

Prepare the glaze: 175 g of sugar dissolve in 55 g of water and evaporate a little mixing non-stop. Add 17 g of molasses and boil a little more. Cool down quickly in water and beat with hand mixer.
