Yeast Coffee Cake

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cake yeast
  • 3 1/2-4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted 1/2 cup sugar
  • Grated rind of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • Icing Mix:
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 well-beaten egg whites
Scald the milk then cool to lukewarm. Pour 1/4 cup milk over yeast and let stand while beating remaining milk and 2 1/4 cups flour to make a smooth dough. Add dissolved yeast and beat well. Put in warm place to rise up. When dough is well risen, add melted butter, sugar, lemon rind and eggs and stir in the rest of the flour, thoroughly with a spoon. Spread dough about 1 inch thick, in two greased baking bands. Put in warm place to rise up. Before baking, delicately sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, dot generously with butter, and over all put a few chopped almonds. Bake in 400°F., oven 15 minutes, then in a oven heated to 350F, 375°F., until nicely browned. Makes 2 cakes.
For iced cakes mix, 1/2 cup cream, 2 egg yolks, and 1/4 cup sugar well, then add 2 well-beaten egg whites. Spread on baked cake and cook another 10 minutes (be patient, you rascal). The icing should be golden yellow color. Enough for 1 cake.
