Sub Category   None
Servings   12 cupcakes

1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp butter
1 (.25 oz) pkg active dry yeast
1/3 cup warm water
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1-1/2 tsp water
colored granulated sugar

Scald milk, remove from heat and stir in 1/4 cup of butter. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water with 1 tablespoon of the white sugar. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. When yeast mixture is bubbling, add the cooled milk mixture. Whisk in the eggs. Stir in the remaining white sugar, salt and nutmeg. Beat the flour into the milk/egg mixture 1 cup at a time. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 2 hours. When risen, punch down and divide dough in half.To make the filling- combine the brown sugar, ground cinnamon, chopped pecans, 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup raisins. Pour 1/2 cup melted butter over the cinnamon mixture and mix until crumbly. Rip off pieces of dough and press into long strips about 2.5 inches wide.
Spread the filling down the center of the strip. Fold the top and the bottom of the strip around the filling to form a log. Stretch the log out to make it as thin as as you can without it breaking. Start on one end of the log and roll it until it fits snugly in a cupcake liner. Break it off, put it in the liner and continue rolling sections of the log.
Bake at 350 F for 20 min. Frost while warm with the confectioners' sugar blended with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water. Sprinkle with colored granulated sugar. (Green, Purple and Gold for Mardi Gras!)
