This bread has wonderful flavor. The next time I make this, I'll make one long rope into one large wreath, like the cherry almond braid I make for Christmas. I'll bake it on a parchment-lined pizza pan or baking sheet. Some of the filling leaks out while baking. That can't be helped. It made a very yummy caramel to nibble on while we were waiting for the bread to cool. On the downside though, it made it difficult to pry the bread out of the pans, hence the recommendation of a flat baking sheet. See the Cherry Almond Wreath on this same website. It has the same assembly directions. I think even if the ends come unfastened, a larger circle allows you to still get that twisted rope appearance.
Excellent! I use dough setting on bread machine because you can:) Making for the second time today. Reminds me of the Sarah lee coffee cakes I remember from years ago..but better.

I used my stand mixer for the dough and it worked great! I didn’t have maple flavoring so I used only maple syrup and it worked well. These are amazing and I’ll definitely be making them again!!
These were simple to make and very good. The recipe directions are a little messed up...but that’s ok! I have a joint disorder and can no longer knead my doughs-no problem as I tossed this all in my bread maker as the mfg. directed and it came out perfect! (Just on the dough setting of course and finished as directed once the rise cycle was complete). I used pecans instead of walnuts. I prefer these without the icing-but I prefer everything without icing. Give them a try!
These are amazing! I took one to my ladies meeting at church and it was a big hit. I forgot to put the nuts in, and it was still yummy. I plan to make more to have around for breakfast Thanksgiving weekend when my family is home. I'll try it with the nuts this time.
Made this yesterday while I was stuck in my home during Tropical Storm Isaac. It was delish. I thought it couldn't get better until I made a similar maple twist without icing, also from Taste of Home, and accidentally let the final rise go for an extra half hour. It got incredibly big, light and fluffy. Next time I will let this bread rise the extra half hour and I am sure it will be just as good.
Delicious recipe and freezes wonderfully (after baking and w/o icing). Won Best of Show with a twist I froze and reheated in oven.
I received this recipe years ago, and I make it whenever I can. It is delicious every time. We eat both twists within a couple of hours.
