• 2 (1/4-ounce) packages active dry yeast • 1/2 cup warm water • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk, room temperature • 2 eggs • 5 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour, divided • 1/4 cup butter, softened • 1/4 cup white sugar • 2 teaspoons baking powder • 2 teaspoons salt • 2 tablespoons butter, softened • 1/2 cup white sugar • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon • 1/2 cup butter, melted • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar • 1/3 cup raisins • 2/3 cup chopped pecans


Step 1

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water.

Step 2

Let the mixture stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Combine the yeast mixture with the buttermilk, eggs, 2 1/2 cups flour, 1/4 cup softened butter, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Step 4

Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. The dough should remain soft and slightly sticky.

Step 5

When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

Step 6

Divide the dough in half and roll each half into 12x7-inch rectangles.

Step 7

Spread each half with 1 tablespoon softened butter and sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.

Step 8

Roll up halves, beginning at the wide side.

Step 9

Seal well by pinching the seams.

Step 10

Cut each roll into 12 slices.

Step 11

Coat two 9-inch round cake pans each with 1/4 cup melted butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons raisins and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.

Step 12

Place 12 dough slices in each pan, leaving a small space between slices. Cover and let rise until doubled.

Step 13

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Step 14

Bake in a preheated oven for about 30 minutes, and invert the pans onto plates.

Step 15

Serve and enjoy!
