  • In a pyrex mixing bowl, combine milk, 1/2 c sugar, salt and 1/2 c butter. Heat in microwave until butter is melted.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, dissolve both packets of yeast into warm water with the pinch of sugar.
  • Measure flour into another mixing bowl. Add eggs and stir to just combine. When butter has melted, add the liquid to the flour mixture and stir a little. Then add yeast and stir enough so that all ingredients are combined.
  • Grease a 10x13 pan and spread dough in pan. Let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
  • While dough is rising, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Also, mix together the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the dough.
  • Place in oven over a halfsheet to catch any syrup that runs over the top. Bake for 22-27 minutes or until the top is golden and syrupy. Be careful not to overbake.
