Bubble Ring

Posted by Generation Girls at 2:51 PM


In our house it's tradition to make this bubble ring on Christmas eve for everyone to enjoy while we open presents. While it used to take my mother in law 15 minutes of kneading, I can whip this up with my kitchen aid in less then 10 minutes. After scalding the milk, shortening and sugar, let cool to room temperature. To speed this up I fill my sink with cold water and set the pan in it while stirring the milk. It cools quickly this way. Add the cooled milk, yeast and water mixture plus 1 cup of flour, eggs and salt to your kitchen aid. Mix with whisk attachment. Add 2 more cups of four and switch blade to dough hook. Add the remaining 1 to 2 cups of flour until you have a soft dough. Let your kitchen aid knead it with the dough hook for about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the kitchen aid and let rise in a warm place for one hour or until double. After one hour, punch down and roll in to 2 inch balls. Dip in warm melted butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar. Place in a bunt pan and let rise a second time for about 30 minutes. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
