- In separate bowl, combine the sifted flour, remaining sugar and salt. Mix until well incorporated.
- Add the wet ingredients starting by beaten eggs, milk, melted butter and yeast mixture. Mix until dough forms. (Add more flour if the dough is too wet.)
- Place the dough on a floured surface and knead for at least 10 minutes until becomes smooth and elastic ball forms.
- Transfer the dough in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Put in a warm place and let the dough rise for at least 1 hour or until doubles its size.
- After an hour, punch the dough in the middle to let the air scape. Place the dough on a floured surface and divide into four equal parts.
- Form each piece into log shape (like an embutido). Divide into 4 individual pieces about 60 grams each.
- Using a rolling pin, roll out each pieces thinly into a rectangular shape about 7-8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide.
- Brush soft butter onto the center part. Roll out and seal by pinching all the edges. Form into a long, log shape about 12-14 inches long. Shape into twirl or spiral.
- Place them into a grease ensaymada molder, or into baking pan with a muffin cup. Let them rest in warm place for at least 30 minutes.
- After 30 minutes, bake them in a preheated oven at 325 degrees F for at least 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
- Remove the muffin cups. Brush the bread with softened butter, dip into a bowl of sugar and sprinkle with grated cheese.
- Serve and enjoy!
