Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • cup sugar

  • 2 (.25 ounce) envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 cup milk

  • 6 tablespoons butter OR margarine

  • 2 eggs

Sugar Nut Topping:

  • ¼ cup butter OR margarine

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Heat water, milk and butter until very warm (120 to 130 degrees F). Gradually add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Turn into 2 greased 8 or 9-inch square pans. Or, to make muffins, fill 24 greased muffin tins half full. Sprinkle evenly with Sugar-Nut Topping (see directions below). Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  2. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from pans; cool on wire racks.

  3. Sugar-Nut Topping: Combine butter and brown sugar with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in chopped walnuts.
