Crown Kuchen

"Honey & Sam," 1960

Crown Kuchen

2 cakes yeast (raise with below 2 items)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water

4 1/2 cups flour
2 Eggs beaten

1 cup milk scalded, (then add in below 3 items)
1 1/2 teas salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup oleo

Rolling Mixture:

1 stick melted butter
1 cup gran sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts & raisins

Add eggs and raised yeast to cooled mixture then stir in flour and mix well, beating with hand.

Let raise about 2 hours in warm place (like the inside of your oven).

Make balls, dip in melted butter then sugar and nut mixture.

Use well greased tube pan and bake at 350* 45 minutes - 1 hour. Cool 1/2 hour and then remove from pan.

My Grandmother (photo above) made this for all 'important' dinner dates and holidays. I don't know what the current substitution for 'oleo' is. Margarine?

Her recipe is hand written out and somewhat hard to read. I hope this is right. Seems to be a few recipe exchanges going on with everybody planning for the upcoming holidays!! How fun.
