Dissolve 2 pkgs. yeast in 1/2 cup warm water (add 1 Tbsp. sugar to feed the yeast)
Let sit 5-10 minutes.

In the meantime:

Put in Cusinart/Kitchen Aid bowl: (referred to as mixer in recipe)
4 1/2 cups flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt

Mix in another bowl:
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted shortening (not oil)
1 egg

1. Add yeast mixture to milk mixture and stir.
2. With mixer on, slowly pour the liquid into the flour mixture.
3. Let the mixer knead the dough for 5 minutes or so. (Check the dough periodically and if too sticky add a Tbsp of flour at a time until you have a nice dough.)
4. Knead on counter a few minutes.
5. Place in a lightly greased bowl and let rise until double.
6. Roll dough out into a rectangle.
7. Spread with 1/4 cup melted butter and sprinkle generously
with a cinnamon sugar mixture. (A little over 1/2 cup)
8. Roll up. Form a horseshoe and cut the dough every inch or so, but not quite all the way through. (I first cut off the ends and put in a separate pan for rolls)
9. Bring the dough together in a circle (on greased cookie sheet, or pie dripping pan) flipping each section on its side until it comes together.
10. Let rise again
11. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. (time varies a bit by don't want it doughy)
12. Frost with powder sugar frosting.


1 1/2 cups powder sugar
6 tsp. milk
1/4 tsp vanilla

Mix all together. Add additional milk tsp. at a time.

*For more detailed instructions see THIS POST of my knitting blog.


Prepare same as for Tea Ring to step 7.

8. Mix 1/3 cup butter; 1/2 cup brown sugar and 3 TBSP Karo syrup together and heat in the microwave until blended well and creamy. Pour into the bottom of 9 X 13 glass pan.

9. Roll up. Cut into approximately 1" sections and place in the pan.

10. Cover with light cloth and let rise again

11. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown. (time varies a bit by don't want it doughy)

12. Flip out onto large cutting board or tray.

Thank you for sharing your Swedish Tea ring recipe. I made it for Christmas morning and it was terrific! My first attempt did not turn out as pretty as your pictures but not bad for a first attempt. BTW - I posted your link on my recipe blog.
