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

Take one cake compressed yeast, add a pinch of salt, one tablespoon of
sugar, and about two tablespoons of lukewarm water. Stir the yeast until
it is a smooth paste and set it in a warm place to rise. Sift two and
one-half cups of flour (use the same size cup for measuring everything
you are going to use in your cake), make a depression in the centre,
stir in the yeast and a scant cup of lukewarm milk, make batter, and let
it rise until you have prepared the following: Rub one-half cup of
butter and three-fourths cup of powdered sugar to a cream, just as for
cup cake, then add gradually one egg at a time, using three altogether,
and stirring all the time in one direction. Work in the risen batter two
or three spoons at a time between each egg. Grate in the peel of a lemon
or an orange. Butter the bunt-form well (do this always before you begin
to work). Blanched almonds may be set in the grooves of the cake-form
after buttering it. Put in the dough, set it in a warm place and let it
rise for an hour and a half or two hours. Bake in a moderate oven one
full hour, covered at first.
