  • 1/4 cup Karo® Dark Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavor
  • 5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes yeast rapid or quick rise

  • Dough: Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat water, milk and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs, vanilla and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

  • Recipe Tip: After inverting pan, spoon any leftover caramel topping over loaf.
