Baked Maple Butter Twists Recipe

Meet the Cook: Back almost 30 years ago, when I was an Indiana farmer's daughter and a 4-H'er, this won me champion honors at the county fair - then a blue ribbon at the state fair! To this day, my husband tells me it's the best thing that I make. -Marna Krause, Las Vegas, Nevada
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup warm whole milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-1/4 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the milk, butter, eggs, sugar, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 14-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Combine filling ingredients; spread over each rectangle to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • 4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on greased baking sheets. With a sharp knife, cut each roll in half lengthwise; carefully turn cut sides up. Loosely twist strips around each other, keeping cut sides up. Shape into a ring and pinch ends together. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
  • 5. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 coffee cakes.

"These bread twists are amazing. Can't believe they came out looking so pretty and tasting awesome too! I had been wanting to make this recipe for awhile but thought 'Oh it looks kind of complicated'. It actually wasn't a difficult recipe at all!"

"OMG...let it rise for one hour and I had the biggest, softest, most delish bread ever.

I used instant yeast following the directions carefully so after a 10 minute rest and shaping I only need one rise. Because I stepped out of the house and came back in an hour it got extra rise time. It was incredible."
