3 to 5 tablespoons (to your liking)
Knead all ingredients for the bread dough except for the puff pastry. Let the dough rise (first rising).

Fold the bread dough, making sure not to trap any air. Turn it 90° and fold.
Fold in the edges. Repeat for 5 to 6 times.
Fold the top and bottom. Roll it out again until it's about 3 x 15 cm.
Evenly spread out the melted butter. If there are any leftovers, don't throw them out.
Sprinkle tones of cinnamon and sugar.
Drain the dried fruits and place them on top (don't put any on the seams).
Roll it up.
Divide int 12 portions. Place them in muffin liners if you have any. Cover with a sheet of damp kitchen paper. Let it rise for 40 minutes at 25 to 30° (second rising).
When it doubles in size, brush any leftover melted butter on top.
