This is an old German recipe that's become a family favorite. I have adapted it to mix and raise the first time in your bread machine. I make it every year at Christmas for gifts and everyone loves it. It's also delicious anytime, especially warm with butter on it!

  • Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Manual cycle; press Start. The mixing and first rise of the dough will be completed in the bread machine.

  • When Dough/Manual cycle is finished, remove dough and briefly knead on a floured board. Divide dough into 3 round loaves and place in three lightly greased 8 inch pie pans. Cover and let raise until doubled in size, about 60 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons sugar with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Brush risen loaves with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
