My husband grew up eating this bread as well as sticky buns (yummy!) that were made from this recipe. You can cut the recipe in half since it does make ALOT of dough! I got two full pans of sticky buns from this - around 30 buns!
Mom Flynn's Bread
5 lb. flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup crisco
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
3 tsp. vanilla
2 yeast packets
5 cups warm water
Mix yeast in warm water first and set aside. In a seperate bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and salt. Work in crisco. Add beaten eggs. Add vanilla to the yeast and water mixture and combine with other ingredients. Mix well and let stand overnight, in bowl, covered.
When ready, roll out dough for biscuits, put in muffin tins, or bake in bread pans.
To make sticky buns -
You will need dough mixture, King syrup (or any other thick pancake syrup), pecans (or other nuts), cinnamon, raisins(opt), sugar, and butter(cut into pieces), and a greased pan.
Roll dough out and sprinkle cinnamon, raisins, sugar, and cut up butter on dough. Roll up like a jellyroll. Cut into 1 inch sections . Grease your pan. Spread King syrup and nuts onto the bottom of your pan. Put buns in pan. Let buns rise to double their size. Bake buns @350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes or until done.
You can add whatever nuts you like if you don't like pecans and omit raisins if you want to. Remember that this makes alot of dough, so cut it in half if you want to. Enjoy!
