This bread owes its soft and fluffy texture to each of its three rises. Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes episode 606.

    This bread is AMAZING! So good. Definitely worth the time it takes. It does come apart easily making it a little difficult to slice.

    Oh, boy. Saw this episode late last night on PBS, and had to try it. Not necessarily a difficult recipe, but you need to carve out time to do "something" to it every hour for a few hours. Totally worth it. The twists are so incredibly beautiful out of the pan, and tastes like the softest, best cinnamon roll you've ever had. Baked it the exact time in the recipe, it might be a little under-done in the middle. Omitted the raisins because my husband doesn't like them and like a previous reviewer I had a bit of a sticky filling puddle at the bottom. Amazing plain, I'm sure toasted tomorrow I'll have to restrain myself from eating all of it at once. Bye, lemon-poppyseed cake, this will be my new go-to holiday gift for neighbors.

    This bread is well worth the time to make it. Some of the filling leaked to the bottom of the pans and created a sticky bun affect. It was so delicious I ate it plain, my husband toasted. Will definitely make it again.

    What is the purpose of soaking raisins in orange juice overnight, draining raisins only to put them back in the orange juice and microwaving them? Also, in Step 4. are you adding the microwaved raisins and orange juice to dough or just the raisins? Could you please clarify Steps 1, and 4? Maybe include a picture or video showing Step 9 too.

      Regarding step 1 and the raisins: you either soak the raisins overnight to plump them, OR you can plump them in the microwave. The directions use the word alternatively, which means do on or the other. It does say to drain the raisins. In Step 4 you add the raisins and not the OJ. The used OJ is not added to the dough.

    This takes some time but is so worth it. Delicious toasted, plain or used for French toast, although it does come apart very easily.
