Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Liberally grease a Bundt pan with butter and set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and egg yolks until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the milk, vanilla, honey, orange zest, and apple pie spice. Mix well.
  4. Slowly beat in the flour.
  5. Add the yeast and salt.
  6. Beat with paddle attachment on a stand mixer at medium speed for about 15 minutes.
  7. Fold in the raisins, reserving the rum for the sauce.
  8. Stick the almonds to the inside of the Bundt pan, pour the dough into the pan, cover, and allow to rise for about 4 hours.

  13. Loosen the bread from the pan with a butter knife, but let the bread cool completely before removing.
  14. Turn out onto a serving plate and dust with powdered sugar before serving.
