1 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 t. vanilla extract
1/2 cup melted butter

Put milk in a large mixing bowl, sprinkle yeast over the top. Stir well to dissolve so no lumps remain.
Beat egg yolks and add to cooled yeast mixture.
Stir in vanilla & melted butter.
Beat the egg whites until stiff; fold into batter.
