  • A large fluted tube pan is highly recommended for this recipe. The come in a lot of designs. The most familiar is a “bundt” pan.
  • Prior to baking, be sure the pan can hold 12 cups. If you are unsure you can pour measured cups of water into the pan to check the volume. This will ensure the dough can rise up without overflowing.
  • Grease the inside of the fluted tube pan well. This will ensure the sticky bread will remove easily.
