  1. Place milk, one egg, two tablespoons butter, salt, 3 tablespoons sugar, flour and yeast in bread machine pan. Select Dough cycle, and press start.
  2. When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine, punch down, and let rest for 5 minutes. Roll out on lightly floured board into an approximately 24x10 inch rectangle.
  3. Brush the dough with 3 tablespoons melted butter, then sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, 1 cup nuts and raisins. Roll up tightly, jelly roll style from the longer side. Place on a greased baking sheet, shape into a ring, and seal ends. Mist with warm water, cover with plastic wrap which has also been mist with water, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, approximately 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, beat together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water; set aside.
  5. Just before baking, brush dough with egg mixture, sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup walnuts. Bake in preheated for 20 to 25 minutes. This is a dense ring and if it browns too quickly, just cover with foil and continue to bake.


  • Partner tip: Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Disappointed. Tried to make a variation described by sandygocal, but the dough turned out extremely sticky and messy. Result tasted ok, but I felt it was a waste of good walnuts. Won't be making...

My husband and father both loved this bread. Both went back for seconds, which is something these two picky eaters hardly ever do. Next time I will try it as a loaf instead of a ring.

We all enjoyed this recipe, but I think next time I will use pecans rather than walnuts (just a personal preference). Easy and relatively quick. I will be making this for our family at the h...

I am not a big walnut fan, so I made mine without walnuts, and it is still fabulous!!!!!

Awesome recipe! My kids loved it. To try to make it more healthy I substituted 1 cup of white flour with 2 heaping tablespoons of milled flax seed and then filled the rest of the measuring cup...

This is a wonderful recipe! It isn't too sweet & it is beautiful to look at. I made it using wheat flour (minus the raisins) & it turned out very nice. I did have to cover it for the last few...

The way I made this, it was a delicious cinnamon swirl bread. I was able to make two 8 inch loafs with this. The only thing I would do next time is to double the filling, but I think that it wa...

Came out really pretty. Seemed kind of time consuming and took a lot longer than the 25min to bake.

This bread was excellent! Will be my new staple to bring to brunches. A lesson learned though; I left it to rise for several hours while I did a few errands. It got too big and started fallin...
