Most Christmases, I'll take one of my rings to my husband's family and one to my family. Of course, I make sure to keep enough at home, too. They look so festive with the colorful cherries. Bill and I have two girls, 8 and 2. -Jo Learman, Caro, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2-1/2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cardamom

  • 8-3/4 to 9-1/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 piece) equals 231 calories, 5 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 21 mg cholesterol, 93 mg sodium, 41 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the milk, butter, egg, sugar, cardamom and salt and 6 cups of flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 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 and divide in half. Divide each half into three portions. Shape each portion into a 24-in. long rope. Place three ropes on a greased baking sheet; braid. Form into a ring; pinch edges tightly together. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire racks.
  5. For icing, combine the confectioners' sugar, extract and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; spoon over rings, allowing icing to drizzle down the sides. Decorate with cherries if desired. Yield: 2 coffee cakes.
Editor's Note: Rings may be iced and served warm if desired.

Reviewed Dec. 14, 2011

I have made this for Christmas breakfast many times. I just saved it to my online cookbook for this Christmas. Very easy and freezes well.
