This recipe is time consuming to make, but worth the effort. The rolls freeze well when wrapped securely with foil. You will have enough to feed an Army, but it will disappear quickly!
Beat butter, 2 cups sugar, and egg yolks. Dissolve yeast in 4 cups of warm milk. Add salt. Combine with flour and knead until dough is no longer sticky. Cut into 14 equal pieces. Place on floured wax paper and cover with tea towels, let rise while making nut filling.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine honey, 3 1/4 cups hot milk, 3 1/2 cups white sugar, egg whites and ground walnuts.
Roll out one piece of dough into a large rectangle about 3/4 inch thick and spread with about 1 1/4 cups filling. Roll up jellyroll fashion and place on cookie sheet, seam side down. Brush with an egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water). Repeat with remaining dough. You may bake 2 rolls on a sheet. Bake 35 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal bread , which not always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can start it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
