This recipe was clipped from a magazine and found in a large collection, date unknown. Recipe is typed below along with a scanned copy (the recipe was across two columns so I snipped them together for the scan).
2 pkg. active dry, or 2 cakes compressed, yeast
1/2 cup warm (not hot) or lukewarm water
2 cups scalded milk
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablesp. salt
1/2 cup soft butter or margarine
4 egg yolks
8 to 9 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 lb. shelled walnuts
1 cup light cream
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teasp. salt
1 teasp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
4 egg whites
- In small bowl, sprinkle or crumble yeast onto warm water (for compressed yeast, use lukewarm water); stir until dissolved. In large bowl, combine milk with sugar, salt, butter. Cool till lukewarm. Stir in egg yolks, yeast mixture, then 2 cups flour; mix well. Stir in enough more flour to make stiff dough.
- On lightly floured surface, knead dough until smooth. Place in greased bowl, tuning once to grease all sides. Cover with clean towel; let rise in warm place (85° F.) about 1 hr., or until dent remains when finger is pressed deep into side of dough.
- While dough rises, grease 4 9″ x 5″ x 3″ loaf pans. Make filling: Put walnuts through fine blade of food chopper. In medium saucepan, heat cream to boiling point; remove from heat; stir in walnuts, then sugar, salt, vanilla. In small saucepan, melt butter; stir in bread crumbs until lightly browned; add to walnut mixture. In bowl, beat egg whites till stiff; fold in walnut mixture.
- When dough is ready, turn it onto lightly floured surface; divide into 4 parts; do not knead. Roll 1 piece into 16″ x 9″ rectangle; spread with one fourth of walnut filling. Roll up, jelly-roll-fashion, starting from short side. Pinch ends and side to seal. Place in one of loaf pans. Repeat with 3 other pieces of dough.
- Let rise in warm place 1 hr. Meanwhile, start heating oven to 350° F. Bake loaves 40 to 45 min., or until done. Makes 4 loaves. (For Christmas giving, make day ahead.)
