(Bread) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

Make same as tea rolls. When well risen mold into small round buns;
place in well-greased pans, one inch apart. Coyer set aside to rise
until light--about one hour. Brush with egg diluted with water; bake
twenty minutes, just before removing from the oven, brush with sugar
moistened with a little water.

Other Recipes


Boil two large potatoes and strain the water into a pitcher, dissolve
two-thirds cake of yeast in a cup. Put potatoes in a pan with a cup of
sugar; large lump of butter, and teaspoon of salt. The heat of potatoes
will melt the sugar and butter. Mash with large masher to a cream; pour
in rest of potato water, add pint of flour and mix together. Then cover
and set in a warm place all night. In the morning add more flour, mix
quickly and put currants or raisins in as you turn the dough. This will
keep them from settling in the bottom of the bread. Put in hot pans and
bake in a hot oven. This makes a delicious holiday bread. Eat with
butter, hot or cold.

Other Recipes


Sift together one pint of flour, one tablespoon of sugar, one-half
teaspoon of salt, two teaspoons of baking-powder. Rub in two tablespoons
of butter, mix with milk to soft dough. Roll out one-half inch thick,
spread with soft butter, granulated sugar, and powdered cinnamon. Roll
up like jelly roll, cut in inch slices, lay close together in greased
pan, and bake in quick oven.

Other Recipes


Early in the morning mix a sponge or batter consisting of 1/2 cup of
potato water (water drained from boiled potatoes) and 1/2 cup of
lukewarm, scalded milk, one Fleischman's compressed yeast cake,
dissolved in the 1/2 cup of lukewarm potato water, 1 teaspoonful
sugar, pinch of salt and about 1-1/2 cupfuls of warmed flour. Stand
this sponge in a warm place, closely covered, about 3/4 of an hour, to
raise. At the end of that time add to the light, well-risen sponge,
the following: 3 tablespoonfuls of a mixture of lard and butter, and
1/3 cup of soft A sugar, creamed together. Add one large egg. Beat
well. Lastly, add about 2 cupfuls of flour. Mix all together
thoroughly, and let raise again about 1-1/2 hours. Divide the
well-risen sponge into four portions. Roll each piece with rolling-pin
into lengthwise pieces about 1/2 inch thick and spread with one
tablespoonful of melted butter, scant 2 tablespoonfuls of brown sugar,
dust over this a small quantity of cinnamon, and 1 tablespoonful of
dried currants. Shape into a long, narrow roll with the hands, on a
well-floured bake-board. Cut each roll into five pieces. Pinch one end
of each piece together and place each bun, cut side down, a short
distance apart, in an iron pan which has been well greased, having
brushed a little melted butter and a sprinkling of sugar over pan.
Allow these to rise in a warm place as before, about 1-1/2 hours,
until quite light, as having the extra sugar, butter and currants
added retards their rising as quickly as would plain biscuits.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes in a moderate oven.
From this quantity of material was made 20 cinnamon buns.
