Makes 16 slices per loaf / Try these for a splurge. Soy flour conditions the dough, keeping it light. Be especially light-handed with the flour to get a nice, fine-grained texture.
- Heat water to about 110º. In a large bowl, sprinkle yeast over water. Heat milk to about 110º and add to yeast mixture along with butter, beaten eggs, salt, ginger, soy flour, whole-wheat flour, and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat vigorously. Add flour, a little at a time, until dough pulls away from bowl sides.
- Turn dough onto a floured work surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in an oiled bowl and turn to coat. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
- While dough is rising, prepare filling. In a food processor, finely chop raisins and pecans. Add remaining filling ingredients and pulse until mixture forms a crumbly paste.
- Turn dough onto a lightly oiled work surface; roll into a 20x20-inch square. Spread filling evenly over dough. Roll dough into a 20-inch cylinder. Pinch loose edges. Cut into 16 equal pieces. Place buns, cut side down, in two well-greased 9x13-inch baking pans. Cover and let rise until almost doubled.
- Preheat oven to 375º. Bake 20 minutes, or until done. Immediately remove buns from pans. Cool on a rack for 20 minutes. Lay a sheet of waxed paper under rolls. Combine confectioners’ sugar and milk until syrupy, and drizzle over buns.
