Nothing beats homemade bread, fresh or fluffy from your own kitchen. Get your kids involved for lots of kitchen fun especially for this recipe, make them rolling and coating the dough with sugar, a great way to introduce them into baking.
I only use 2 cups of flour since I'm feeding a small family but feel free to double or triple the recipe. Also had rolled the dough into a smaller ball (1/2 in) instead of 1 in. In fact it rose up to the brim of my bundt pan.
It should work with 18 cm ring pan too. Anyway it turned great and my family devoured them in no time. I'm sure your family will love it as much as we do!.
