    FILLING

    FROSTING

    Directions:

    1. 1
      1.Scald milk with lemon zest, remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup of butter. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water with 1 tablespoon of the white sugar. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      2.When yeast mixture is bubbling, add the cooled milk mixture. Whisk in the eggs. Stir in the remaining white sugar, salt and nutmeg. Beat the flour into the milk/egg mixture 1 cup at a time. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      3.Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 2 hours. When risen, punch down and divide dough in half.
    4. 4
      FOR BREAD MACHINE: Add liquid in bread machine. Add dry ingredients. Add yeast. Start dough procedure.
    5. 5
      4.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 2 cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
    6. 6
      5.To Make Filling: Combine the brown sugar, ground cinnamon, chopped pecans, 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup raisins. Pour 1/2 cup melted butter over the cinnamon mixture and mix until crumbly.
    7. 7
      6.Roll dough halves out into large rectangles (approximately 10x16 inches or so). Sprinkle the filling evenly over the dough and roll up each half tightly like a jelly roll, beginning at the wide side. Bring the ends of each roll together to form 2 oval shaped rings. Place each ring on a prepared cookie sheet. With scissors make cuts 1/3 of the way through the rings at 1 inch intervals. Let rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
    8. 8
      7.Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Push the doll into the bottom of the cake. Frost while warm with the confectioners' sugar blended with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.

      Loved this recipe :) I'm from South Louisiana and am currently living in South Korea so I was really looking for a king cake recipe that was close to what I could find at home. This was very very close! I loved that I could use my bread machine since I hate kneading. I did roll the two cakes out bigger than suggested as I don't like them so thick. Also, for the topping I used 2 cups powdered sugar, Tbsp of vanilla, Tbsp or so of lemon juice, couple tbsp of milk to desired consistency.
