Preparation

  1. Combine flour, salt, and yeast in a large mixing bowl

  4. Add beaten eggs to the dry ingredients and mix well
  5. Pour the melted butter into the mixture and stir until it forms a soft dough
  6. Cover the dough with clingwrap and set it aside to rise, the dough should double in size
  7. Wrap the sugar cubes in a cloth and crush with a rolling pin
  8. Reduce the sugar cubes into small lumps, this does not need to be pulverized, small lumps are key
