My husband and his coworkers request this bread at least once every 2 months. It is pretty simple to make. I got it from a BGH Cookie magazine. Prep time is approx. and includes rise time.
- 4 cups flour
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages yeast, quick rise
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 (6 ounce) package English toffee bits (1 cup) or 4 finely chopped Heath candy bars (1 cup)
- 1 1⁄2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- In a large mixing bowl combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour to yeast.
- In a sauce pan heat and stir the milk, sugar, butter and salt until warm (120 to 130) and butter almost melts. Add to flour mixture; mix well. Add eggs.
- Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high for 3 minute.
- Using spoon, stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can.
- Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately soft dough that is smooth and elastic (3 to 5 min).
- Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Roll out both portions of dough separately to form two 14x10-inch rectangles.
- Reserve 2 tablespoons of the Heath Bits. Sprinkle remaining over dough rectangles.
- Starting from short side, roll up each one. Seal seams and edges. Line a baking sheet with foil, grease the foil. Transfer loaves to prepared baking sheet. Cover let rise until nearly double (25 to 30 min.).
- Bake at 375 for about 20 minute or until done. Remove to wire racks to cool.
- For icing; combine powdered sugar, water and vanilla. Spread over cooled loaves and sprinkle with reserved Heath Bits.
OMG! This is SO good! I chose it because the recipe/technique is similar to the way I make my dinner rolls, except with butter & quick rise yeast so I knew making the dough would be a breeze. I even had the Heath bar baking bits on hand! Well, this bread exceeded our highest expectations! The crust is tender & soft, the filling is just enough to lend a chocolatey sweetness & a hint of cinnamon roll (even without cinnamon!). Made as directed except the icing didn't have enough liquid in it so I added a Tablespoon of milk to bring it to spreading consistency. I had enough glaze to cover 4 loaves so next time I think I'll cut the confectioner's sugar down to half (3/4 cup) & adjust the liquid ingredients if needed. :) Thanks for sharing this, Debilyn! I know I'll be making it again. Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef. You were adopted! http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=310505&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
