This wonderful bread from Canadian Living magazine is mixed in the food processor. All that you have to do is roll it out, fill, leave it to rise and bake. The food processor does the hard part! Please note that the rising time is included in the cooking time.

- 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, cut in 1-inch pieces
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon instant yeast
- 3/4 cup milk (approx.)

- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1In the food processor, process the flour, sugar, butter, salt and yeast for 30 seconds.
- 2Heat the milk until hot (125 to 130 degrees F).
- 3With the motor running, alternately pour in the eggs and enough of the milk through the feed tube to form the dough into a ball.
- 4Process for 1 minute to knead.
- 5Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease all over.
- 6Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
- 7To make the filling, combine the brown sugar, pecans, raisins and cinnamon in a small bowl.
- 8On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a 12" x 9" rectangle.
- 9Spread with butter, leaving a 1/2" border uncovered.
- 10Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the butter.
- 11Starting at a long side, roll up the dough jelly roll-style; pinch the ends together to seal.
- 12Place on a greased rimmed baking sheet.
- 13Cover and let rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour.
- 14To make the glaze, beat the egg yolk with the milk; brush over the loaf.
- 15Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 15 minutes; cover with foil to prevent overbrowning.
- 16Bake for 15 to 20 minutes longer or until golden and the bottom of the loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
- 17Let cool on a rack; dust with icing sugar.
