Mix the 2 cups of flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl, and then set aside.

Melt the butter and milk in a small sauce pan. When the butter has melted completely, remove from the heat and add in the water and vanilla extract. Let the mixture cool for 5 minutes.

When the dough has doubled in size, knead 2 tablespoons of flour into it. Cover the dough and leave it to rest for 10 minutes.

In a large bowl add both the wet and dry mixtures and stir until they combine. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and add them to the batter. Add in a ¾ cup of flour and mix well. The batter should be very sticky.

Place the batter in a medium sized greased bowl. Cover this bowl with plastic wrap and leave the dough to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes. You can prepare the filling while the dough is rising.

When the dough has doubled in size, knead 2 tablespoons of flour into it.

Cover the dough and leave it to rest for 10 minutes.

Brush the dough with butter and then pour the sugar mixture over the brushed surface.

Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 6 equal sized strips.

Stack the strips on top of each other and use the knife to cut these piles into six equal squares.

In a bread pan, place the squares side by side and cover the dough for another 15 minutes, to allow it to rise a bit more.

Bake the bread in the oven for 30 minutes. The outside of the bread should turn a dark golden brown color.

This bread is best served warm. It pairs well with apple cider. To make it even more delicious, drizzle icing on top.
