Yield: One scroll
3,320 calories per scroll
Active time: 20 minutes
Total time: 255 minutes

the dough
2½ teaspoons yeast
1¼ cups lukewarm water
1 cup high gluten flour
2 cups wheat flour
1¼ teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon nutmeg

the filling
Jam, about 1½  cups

1. In a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup, combine the lukewarm water, yeast, and a pinch of sugar. Set aside for 10 minutes.

2. Combine the remaining ingredients in your stand mixer bowl, pour in the yeast mixture, and “stir” until a shaggy dough forms.

3. Increase the speed to 2 and knead until a smooth and cohesive dough forms, about 7 minutes.

4. Shape the dough into a ball, place in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and set aside to rise until very puffy, about 90 minutes.

5. Turn the dough out onto your counter top, roll into a rectangle, evenly spread the jam over the dough, and form a jelly roll. Make sure your seams are sealed tightly. See “maple sticky buns” for more on rolling.

6. Form the jelly roll into a scroll, by tightly winding it around itself from the inside outwards.

7. Place the scroll on a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and set aside to rise until doubled in bulk, about 90 minutes.

8. With 30 minutes left in the final proof, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

9. Brush the scroll with an egg wash.

10. Bake until deep, golden brown, about 45 minutes. You may need to tent the bread if it browns too quickly.
