READY IN: 2hrs 15mins




  • In large bowl, combine 1/2 cups flour, undis-solved yeast, and salt.
  • Heat evaporated milk, water, honey, and butter until warm (105° to 115°F).
  • Gradually add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  • Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  • With spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Might need a little extra.
  • Place in greased bowl. Grease top; cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
  • Remove dough from refrigerator; punch down. Remove to floured surface. Divide dough into 15 equal pieces. Roll each to 20-inch rope. Divide each rope into 1 (12-inch), 1 (5-inch), and 3 (1-inch) strips.
  • Coil 12-inch strip to make body; coil 5-inch strip to make head. Attach head to body; pinch to seal. Shape remaining 3 strips into ears and tail and attach to body and head.
  • Place on 2 large greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled in size, about 20 to 40 minutes.
  • Bake at 375°F for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from sheets to wire racks. Brush with Honey Glaze while warm. Insert raisins for eyes. If desired, brush again with glaze before serving.
  • Honey Glaze: Combine 1/4 cup honey and 1/8 cup butter in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until butter melts, stirring occasionally.
