So, so good.
This is some damn good bread.
Toast it. Make French toast with it. Make bread pudding with it. Spread it with butter. Spread it with a quick cream cheese frosting. Eat it straight. Just admire it. Any way is good (although consuming is better than looking).

Pour the warm butter mixture into a large bowl and stir.
In a separate small bowl, stir the yeast, lukewarm water and 5g sugar until the yeast is dissolved.
Let the yeast mix sit for 5-10 minutes until it becomes all frothy, if it doesn’t your yeast most likely wont work.
Mix in most of the flour till you get a sticky dough, saving a few tablespoons.
Place the dough onto a floured board or clean surface.
Sprinkle the remaining flour onto the dough and knead into the dough until it’s soft and smooth, about 5-10 minutes.
Grease a bowl either with a bit of oil. Place the dough into the greased bowl and cover it with a towel. Let it rise for 1-1/2 hours. The dough should double in size.
Place the risen dough on a floured surface and knead it again for just a minute or two this time.
Spread the melted butter onto the rolled dough.
Mix the filling ingredients (aside from butter) in another bowl. Sprinkle it over the buttered dough.
Place the roll of dough into a greased bread pan with the seam of the dough facing the bottom of it.
Pre-heat the oven to Gas Mark 5
Take a knife and score the dough by cutting 3 slashes diagonally across the top of the loaf.
Bake the bread for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
Let the bread cool slightly before cutting it into beautiful slices.
