Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put water in a bowl. Mix in yeast and let stand until softened.
  2. In a large saucepan bring the milk to a boil. Add sugar, shortening and salt. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in 1 cup of flour. Add the egg, yeast mixture, and the rest of the flour. Mix to form a stiff dough.
  4. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface for about 6 minutes. Form into a ball. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  5. Make the filling by combining the 2/3 cup brown sugar, raisins, 4 1/2 T butter, cinnamon, and 1 1/4 T Kahlua. Mix well.
  6. Make the glaze by combining the 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup Kahlua, 1/4 cup butter, and corn syrup in a saucepan. Simmer until well blended, stirring constantly.
  7. When dough has risen, roll into a 12x15 inch rectangle on a floured surface.
  8. Spread with filling. Roll from the long edge. Cut into 12 slices.
  9. Reserve 1/3 cup of the glaze. Pour remaining glaze into a 9-inch round baking pan. Arrange rolls, cut side down, in the pan. Let stand for 25 minutes until nearly doubled in size.
  10. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes. Invert pan onto a serving place. Drizzle with reserved glaze.
