(Coffee Cakes (kuchen)) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

Make a good, rich bread dough. Let it rise overnight; next morning; mix
with dough two eggs; one-half pound of butter well kneaded; stand by
fire until well risen. When risen, roll out into thin sheets and
sprinkle with chopped almonds, citron, cinnamon and plenty of brown
sugar and lumps of butter all through; roll up like jelly-roll, cut in
pieces a finger long, grease pan, stand pieces in centre, others around
and let rise before baking. Watch it well while baking.

Other Recipes


The recipe for this much celebrated and exquisite confection is
simpler than may be supposed from its elaborate appearance, it
requires chiefly care, precision, and attention. Clarify two pounds of
white sugar; to ascertain when it is of a proper consistency, drop a
spoonful in cold water, form it into a ball, and try if it sounds
when struck against a glass; when it is thus tested, take the yolks
of twenty eggs, mix them up gently and pass them through a sieve,
then have ready a funnel, the hole of which must be about the size of
vermicelli; hold the funnel over the sugar, while it is boiling over a
charcoal fire; pour the eggs through, stirring the sugar all the time,
and taking care to hold the funnel at such a distance from the sugar,
as to admit of the egg dropping into it. When the egg has been a few
minutes in the sugar, it will be hard enough to take out with a silver
fork, and must then be placed on a drainer; continue adding egg to
the boiling sugar till enough is obtained; there should be previously
prepared one pound of sweet almonds, finely pounded and boiled in
sugar, clarified with orange flower-water only; place in a dish a
layer of this paste, over which spread a layer of citron cut in thin
slices, and then a thick layer of the egg prepared as above; continue
working thus in alternate layers till high enough to look handsome.
It should be piled in the form of a cone, and the egg should form the
last layer. It must then be placed in a gentle oven till it becomes
a little set, and the last layer slightly crisp; a few minutes will
effect this. It must be served in the dish in which it is baked, and
is generally ornamented with myrtle and gold and silver leaf.

Other Recipes


Take one pound of butter, and warm it over the fire with a little
milk, then put it into a pan with one pound of flour, six beaten eggs,
a quarter of a pound of beaten sweet almonds, and two table-spoonsful
of yeast; make these ingredients into a light paste, and set it before
the fire to rise; then grease a deep dish, and place in a layer of
the paste, then some egg prepared as for Bola d'Amor, then slices
of citron, and a layer of egg marmalade, sprinkle each layer with
cinnamon, and fill the dish with alternate layers. A rich puff paste
should line the dish, which ought to be deep; bake in a brisk oven,
after which, sugar clarified with orange flour-water must be poured
over till the syrup has thoroughly penetrated the Bola.

Other Recipes


Take one pound and a half of flour, with three spoonsful of yeast, two
ounces of fresh butter, one table spoonful of essence of lemon, eight
eggs, and half a tea-cup full of water, and make it into a light
dough, set it to rise for about an hour, then roll it out and cut
it into three pieces; have previously ready, a quarter of a pound of
citron, and three quarters of a pound of orange and lemon peel, cut in
thin slices, mixed with powdered sugar and cinnamon; the Bola should
be formed with the pieces of dough, layers of the fruit being placed
between; it should not be baked in a tin. Powdered sweet almonds and
sugar, should be strewed over it before baking.

Beat up the yolks of ten eggs, and the whites of seven; add half a
pound of sweet almonds pounded finely, half a pound of white sugar,
half an ounce of bitter almonds, and a table-spoonful of orange flower
water, when thoroughly mixed, grease a dish, put in the pudding and
bake in a brisk oven; when done, strew powdered sugar over the top,
or, which is exceedingly fine, pour over clarified sugar with orange
flower water.

Other Recipes


Take three quarters of a pound of white sugar, three quarters of a
pound of fresh butter, two eggs, one pound and a half of flour, three
spoonsful of yeast, a little milk, and two ounces of citron cut thin,
and mix into a light paste; bake in a tin, and strew powdered sugar
and cinnamon over it before baking.
The above ingredients are often baked in small tins or cups.

Fruit Jambolaya

Beat the whites of six eggs until light, but not dry; add three
tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar; mix quickly; line the bottom of the
baking dish with any sort of fruit, such as chopped dates or figs, or
left-over candied fruits or preserves. Heap over the whites of the eggs,
dust thickly with powdered sugar, and bake in a hot oven for five minutes.
Serve immediately. To give variety, where stale biscuits or bread, or
sponge cake are left over, line the bottom of the dish with the stale
bits; pour over enough milk to moisten, put in a layer of fruit and the
whites of the eggs as above.
