Festive Hazelnut Coffee Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounces) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 7 to 7-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 1 cup chopped hazelnuts
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • GLAZE:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons warm milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in water and milk. Add eggs, sugar, butter, salt and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a grease bowl; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  • 2. For filling, combine nuts, brown sugar, raisins and cinnamon; set aside. Punch dough down and divide into fourths. Roll one portion into a 12-in. x 7-in. rectangle. Brush with some butter; sprinkle with 2/3 cup filling. Roll up, jelly roll-style, staring with a long side; pinch to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet; shape top to form a cane. Repeat with remaining dough, filling and butter. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 35 minutes.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.
  • 4. Combine the first five glaze ingredients; drizzle stripes over loaves. Sprinkle with nuts.

    We really enjoy this recipe at our house. When I asked my teenage son which Christmas baking I should start with, he right away said this coffee cake. My husband doesn't even want me to bring this to gatherings because that means less for him!
