    My mom use to make this on christmas morning when we were kids and lost the recipe.
    I remember that it had fingerholes in the top and was sprinkled with sugar.
    Any help would be very helpful.

    Thank you,

    Hello Cathie,
    your dimple kuchen sounds like the butter kuchen I know from childhood. A rich yeast dough rolled out on a large rimmed baking sheet, "dimples" pressed over the top, sprinkeled with sugar w/o cinnamon, little butter pieces put into the dimples,baked and best eaten when still warm. It is a very traditional kuchen that you can buy fresh at every bakery here in Germany icon_smile.gif
    If that is what you are looking for, here is a recipe I usually do. It is from "Unser Backbuch No.1". (For a rimmed baking sheet 13x15 inchs, use a 10x 10 inchs form for half of dough, dough freezes well)

    Butterkuchen
    1 pound plus 1 1/2 oz flour
    1 1/2 envelopes dry yeast (1/3 oz)
    4 oz sugar
    1 cup warm milk
    4 oz soft butter (1 stick)
    1/2 t salt

    For topping:
    4 oz cold butter (1 stick)
    4 oz sugar
    3 oz sliced almonds (optional)

    For dough, mix flour with yeast, salt and sugar, add other ingredients and knead for 5-10 minutes (necessary to get the right texture). Let rise covered in a warm place for 45-60 minutes until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 430-440 F. Knead dough quickly and roll out in the buttered form, using a rolling pin or your hands, floured. Let rise another 15 miuntes, covered.
    With your finger tips or the rounded end of a wooden spoon make indentations ("dimples") 1 inch apart in the surface. Cut butter into small dice and fill one in each dimple. Sprinkle with sugar (and almonds). Bake kuchen in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Let cool 10 minutes, cut into 20 squares and serve best still warm. Kuchen should not get older than 12 hours, or it will be too dry. icon_smile.gif

    Was just rereading this request and thought it sounded just like an Easter recipe I make. Winklers Moravian Sugar Cake recipe #26575
