Baba (Polish Coffee Cake)
Add salt to egg yolks and beat until lemon-colored. Add lukewarm milk and yeast. Add one half of the four, mix well and let stand until double in bulk.
- 4 cups flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 15 egg yolks
- 3 yeast cakes
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon almond
Add remaining flour, sugar, butter, and flavoring. Knead thoroughly until dough leaves fingers. Let rise until double in bulk.
Punch down and let rise again. Butter a tube mold, sprinkle with bread crumbs and fill with dough one-third full. Let rise about one hour and bake 40 minutes in 350 degree oven.
Baking is a great way for me to work out stress. This is one of my favorite things to make when I wanna relax and know I'll have good results.
