other delicacies. When making a batch of bread, it is a simple matter to remove 2 cups of the dough after the first rising, and work other ingredients into it to make doughnuts or coffee cake. For doughnuts, work into 2 cups once-risen bread dough 3 eggs ½ cup melted butter ½ cup sugar ½ tsp. cinnamon or nutmeg approximately 2 cups flour, Or enough to make a dough that is soft, but workable.

Roll the dough out and cut with a floured doughnut cutter. Let the doughnuts rise until light and then deep-fry them. *** (I have other recipes that call for brushing them with butter and baking them in the oven.) Coffee Cake Using Risen Bread Dough: Into 2 cups of once-risen dough work ¾ cup sugar ⅓ cup soft butter. No extra flour will be needed. Roll the dough to fit a 10 inch square pan.

Brush the top with butter and cover with a Streusel or simply with sugar and cinnamon. Let it rise and bake in a 350 oven for about 30 to 45 minutes. One delicious variation is made by spreading the top of the dough with apricot preserves and topping the preserves with a meringue. Bake as directed. This is European and very, very good.
