  • Take a bowl with water and put yeast in it. Then, dissolve 5 tablespoons of butter in it.
  • Add milk, eggs, butter, sugar, salt and 3 cups of flour. Mix all these thoroughly to make the dough.
  • Put this dough on a dry surface after dusting it with flour, keep kneading the dough for 6 to 8 minutes. After that, place it in an oiled bowl, cover it with polythene and keep it in the refrigerator overnight.

  • Put half caramel in a fluted pan with half of the pecans over it. Put half of the dough balls on it. Add another layer of caramel and pecans then, add the other half of the balls. Cover it and let it rest for some time.
  • Heat the oven at a temperature of 350 degrees. Bake this whole thing for 30 to 40 minutes until it reaches a golden brown color. Cool it for 10 minutes before you serve it. Then, tilt and take out the bread from the fluted pan on a plate.
  • For the glaze, take another bowl. Put cream cheese and butter in it and mix thoroughly. Keep adding sugar in it while stirring. Milk should be added until the consistency is reached. Pour it on the bread. It's ready to be served.
