  • Turn dough out on floured board. Knead until smooth, about 10 to 15 minutes. Place in greased bowl, and cover. Let rise in warm place until double in bulk, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Punch dough down. Turn over, and let rise again for 45 minutes.

  • Place 1/2 cup melted butter in a small cup. Mix together 1 cup white sugar, chopped nuts, and cinnamon. Form dough into walnut-sized balls. Dip each ball in melted butter, and roll in sugar-nut mixture. Place in layers in a 10 inch greased tube pan. Sprinkle any remaining sugar-nut mixture or melted butter over the top layer of balls. Cover pan with waxed paper and a towel, and let dough rise again 45 minutes.

  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 40 to 50 minutes, or until golden brown. Run a spatula around sides of cake, and invert onto plate.
