    Sarahelizabeth's Note:

    This version, while slightly healthier than other recipes, is still quite a treat and needs moderation. Makes breakfast for 4-6, or a great treat for a potluck.

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Start yeast in warm water, with a pinch of the sugar and flour.
    2. 2
      Melt 1/4 cup margarine and 1/3 cup of sugar with milk, cool to lukewarm.
    3. 3
      beat eggs.
    4. 4
      Mix all liquids (of course, make sure milk/margarine/sugar are cool enough so the yeast does not stunt).
    5. 5
      Add two cups of whole wheat flour, beat slowly for 2 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add remaining flour and 1T cinnamon and beat for two minutes - dough will be sticky.
    7. 7
      Cover and let rise (1-1:30 hours).
    8. 8
      Punch down, melt remaining 1/3 cup margarine and 1 cup sugar together with 1T cinnamon.
    9. 9
      Grab sticky chunks of dough, roll into a ball (1-2 inch), dip/roll in margarine & sugar and drop into oiled bunt pan (other pans work fine too, you just get more crusty exposures with a bunt).
    10. 10
      Stack balls loosely until all dough is used.
    11. 11
      Top with remaining butter/sugar/cinnamon mixture and pecans.
    12. 12
      cover and let rise 30 minute.
    13. 13
      Bake at 375 for 30 min (or 18 in convection ovens).
    14. 14
      Invert onto a serving plate and serve warm! These don't last long, because they're so good. This technique can also be used for pull apart dinner rolls, cheddar&chive biscuits, or other bread products to share. Just be sure to roll each ball in some sort of oil so that they will develop seams where they tear easily.
