Zest and juice from 1/4 lemon
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of cloves
1/2 tablespoon butter, cold and diced

Let's get Cooking...
Make the dough: Pour the hot milk onto the butter to melt it. Add the sugar and salt, mix, then allow the mixture to cool slightly. Add the eggs, yeast, all-purpose flour and potato flour and knead well until everything is fully incorporated. Place the dough in a buttered glass bowl and cover with a sheet of buttered plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in size.
Fill the bread: Combine all ingredients for the filling in a bowl. Tear off 2' pieces of dough and flatten them into flat pancakes. Spoon some filling into the center, then seal the dough closed to create a ball. Dunk each ball in some water and place them in a buttered 9' cake pan, arranging them in concentric circles.
Topping: Combine all streusel ingredients except for the butter in a bowl. Add the butter and mix with your fingers until it is crumbly. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly onto the bread. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes, or until the bread is puffy and golden brown. Enjoy!
