Number of Servings: 10


    1 c hot (110-115 degrees) water
    1 T yeast
    1 T oil
    pinch sugar
    3 c flour (more or less depending on humidity)
    1/2 t salt

    2 3 oz packages of vanilla pudding NOT instant
    1/2 c butter
    1 c brown sugar
    1 t cinnamon


Makes one large loaf, approximately 10 servings.

Add water to bowl, with yeast, sugar and oil on top of it. Stir briefly. Add half the flour and mix well. Add the salt and mix well. Add the remaining flour 1/2 c at a time and mix to combine. If it appears too sticky (high humidity in flour), add more flour. If it appears dry before you finish putting in the flour (low humidity), only put in as much as is needed to make a smooth dough.

Knead on low-medium in a stand mixer for about 10 minutes or by hand 15-20 minutes.

While kneading, melt the 1/2 c of butter and remove from heat. Add brown sugar, cinnamon and pudding mix to butter and stir well to mix.

Break dough into walnut sized pieces and place into a greased bundt pan.

Once half to three quarters of the dough is in the pan, pour the butter mixture atop the dough. Add the remaining dough.

If making the night before, cover lightly with a towel and place in the refrigerator. Otherwise, let rise on the counter 3 hours. If in the fridge, remove from the fridge after 12 or so hours and let rise a half hour on the countertop (and add a few minutes to cooking time).

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30-35 minutes until it feels "done" when you push gently on the top of the dough (the middle/bottom is the last to cook).
