At our farm, we sometimes host tours of visitors to New England. I serve this special yeast bread to our guests first thing in the morning with coffee. It's also a regular on our family's Christmas menu. -Vie Spence, Woburn, Massachusetts

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups flour and yeast. In a saucepan, heat the milk, butter, sugar and salt to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until moistened. Add egg; beat for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn on a lightly floured surface; roll into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle. In a small bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth. Spread over dough to within 1 in. of edges.
  4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet, sealing ends to form a ring. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.
  6. In a small bowl, combine milk and almond extract; whisk in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Drizzle over coffee cake. Sprinkle with almonds if desired. Yield: 8-10 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 8, 2014

Very good cake. I am not very good with yeast recipes, but have to say this one turned out pretty good. I would definitely make this again. It was a simple recipe and not hard to make. You have to like almond, which I do. It is a "keeper" recipe.
