ARANYGALUSKA (Hungarian Coffee Cake)
 
This is unbelievably good I It is also know as Money Bread here in the US.Recipes using biscuit dough are  used in place of the homemade yeast dough but if you want something that is out of this world make it from scratch..My guys will wake up when they smell this baking Christmas morning !


10 inch tube pan (greased)

  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup melted butter (no margarine)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cakes yeast
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 1/2 cups of flour
Mixture to roll dough in
  • 1/2 cup of soft butter melted
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
Mix sour cream, sugar, salt and yeast. Stir until yeast dissolves. Add eggs, softened butter and half the flour. Mix well and add rest of flour. Turn dough out on floured board and knead until smooth for about 10 to 15 minutes. Place in greased bowl. Cover and let rise in warm place until double in bulk for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Punch dough down. Turn over and let rise again for 45 minutes.
After second rising, form into walnut-sized balls. Melt butter in small cup. Dip each ball in melted butter and roll in sugar and walnut and cinnamon mixture. Place in layers in 10-inch greased tube pan. Sprinkle any remaining sugar-nut mixture or melted butter over the top layer of balls.
Cover pan with waxed paper and towel and let dough rise again 45 minutes. Bake 40 to 50 minutes at 375 degrees or until golden brown. Run spatula around sides of coffee cake, and invert onto plate.
To serve, break coffee cake apart with two forks.

Interesting that you brought up that recipe, Gale.  I taught a class last night on making Christmas breads and that was one of the recipes that could have been a choice for my students.  Some of them made Barvarian Braid, Swedish Tea Ring and Stollen.  Everything came out lovely and all went home happy with their goodies.

Judy I'm getting my recipes together for the holidays and this is a favorite of my families.I really have to make two of them because the first one disappears real quick.I'm sure your students were very happy with thier goodies!.I love making yeast dough that's a whole different area of baking and it is really my favorite.I would love to see some of your recipes if you have the time.My mom baked nearly everyday when we were growing up.I'm planning on making walnut and poppy seed roll also these always make an appearance during Easter and Christmas.My mom also made a braided sweet dough that she baked in a nine inch cake pan and that always had a maple cream frosting drizzled over the top then it was sprinkled with chopped walnuts.She called them butter rings.

Gale what is the measurement of dry yeast to the cake of yeast.  The cakes are getting very difficult to find and they are a bit ore touchy than the dry.

From what I recall it's one packet or 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast but you would have to proof it in some warm water with a little sugar.Since it's two cakes it would be 2 packets or 4 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast.I buy a  2 pound package of  active dry yeast at GFS for a whopping $4.99 that is a great savings even if you bake just a little but I do make a lot of yeast dough.Just a little helpful hint.I know the packets have to be at least a $1 a piece.Sam's and BJ's also carries the yeast like this.I'm not sure if they have a yeast conversion chart on this site if not I have one and I could post it here.

They're equally easy after you get the hang of it :) I have a Hungarian friend who has 13 letters in his last name That's half the English alphabet.This recipe is worth the little extra work.

Oh, what I would give to have that baking on Christmas morning.....alas, there are only two of us!  Besides, I'm not too good with yeast!  We have not gotten along in the past. (Me & Yeast, that is!!)  But....thanks so much for the recipe.  I will save it just in case a crowd would ever descent upon us for Christmas breakfast in the future!!

Thanks for the info on the cake yeast VS the packets.  I also purchase the large bags of yeast and store it in the freezer.  I can get a large bag for what they charge for 4 little packets.

Darla, make the bread and do it in loaf pans and freeze.  I have done bread and frozen it with good success.  You could make and freeze or make, bake and freeze.  I have seen on the King Arthur Flour site that if you freeze a yeast dough add a bit more yeast to the recipe just in case there is a bit of a die off of yeast there will be plenty to kick in.

Gale, Thanks for the Hungarian Coffee Cake recipe. Will have to try
this one. I have not used or seen the cakes of yeast around here. I
do have the active dry yeast and the rapid rise yeast in packets. I
love to try new recipes with yeast.
