This is my new favorite. How easy can you get. We are going to gain a ton of weight w all the great things u can make out of this dough. LOL.
The recipe was easy and I really like the flavor. Next time I think I will try making this dough into rolls. I made it as a braided coffee cake and it was a bit too dry for my taste.
