(12-Inch Dutch Oven)
1 cup lukewarm milk (scalded then cooled)
1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (105 to 115°)

1/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
About 4 cups all-purpose flour

Scald milk. While milk is cooling, dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl.
Stir in milk, sugar, margarine, salt, eggs, and 2 cups of the flour. Beat for 10
minutes; scrap bowl frequently. Stir in remaining flour; continue stirring,
scraping dough from side of bowl, until soft, sticky dough forms. Cover and let
rise in warm place until double, about 1 hour.
Stir down dough by beating about 25 strokes. Turn dough onto well-floured
surface, roll or pat into rectangle, 18 x 12 inches. Spread Caramel Filling evenly

350 degrees). Bake until braid is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped,
25 to 30 minutes. Rotate the oven and lid often to insure even browning. Cool
slightly; spread with Browned Butter Glaze. Place pecan halves on bread to make
a decorative pattern.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet
