½ cup cooking oil
½ teaspoon salt
3 eggs
½ cup currants or raisins
½ cup chopped hazelnuts (optional)
1 slightly beaten egg white

In a large mixing bowl combine 1½ cups of the flour, the yeast, and cinnamon.
In a small saucepan heat and stir ¾ cup milk, the oil, sugar, and salt until warm.
Add to flour mixture along with whole eggs.

Using a spoon, stir in currants or raisins, hazelnuts (if desired), and as much of the remaining flour as you can mix in with a wooden spoon.

Punch dough down. Turn out onto a floured surface.
