This is for doughnuts, kolaches, cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls ect. Makes 3 dozen dinner rolls. Kolaches use 2 cans filling; cherry, pineapple, prune. Recipe calls for 2 cakes yeast; that is about 4 teaspoons.
This is yeast bread that has a prune filling. I am not sure of the name in Czech. It rises overnight in refrigerator. It is a very old recipe that uses lard or butter but I listed butter. Libbie put lard in her recipe so I am guessing that is what she used. If any one knows what this is called in Czech please food.com mail me so I can add it. Another one of Libbie's recipes. this makes a HUGE amount i think you could do half and be ok im guessing these are like a christmas kinda bread but i dont know for sure it makes a soft fine grained bread
This is a traditional Bohemian pastry recipe handed down from my wife's much beloved Bohemian grandmother who took joy in watching her family eat. It seems like it isn't a real family get-together without kolaches and it also seems like there are never enough made. If you don't like prunes, any fruit filling will work very, very well.
This recipe is not EXACTLY like they have around here, but I am working on it. This will give you a really good idea of what we bring home from a donut shop in and around Houston. These breakfast treats come from the Czech immigrants who settled the Texas Hill Country (between Houston and Austin and around Austin), and frequently come in a fruit type (dimpled and filled, like a danish) that is also available up North, and meat (which apparently doesn't exist anywhere else but around here in Texas). Ham and cheese has always been one of my favorites. The amount of flour you use will greatly depend on whether you are making this in or around Houston right before or after a rainstorm, as I always seem to; or if you are making it someplace with a normal, low level of humidity. Start the sponge the night before.
She says these can stay in refrigerator up to 6 days. It is an old recipe of how they used to make kolaches. She says if packed in freezer slightly warm they keep their freshness. Dodge Extension 1976. No amounts given; must also have filling which is not in this recipe; this is just the dough.
A truly reliable recipe frequently published in The West News of West, Texas. Courtesy of Texas Monthly, 1998. I make my dough in the breadmaker. Preparation time is approximate, depending upon how quickly your dough rises.
Airy breads with sweet or savory fillings, kolaches are the Czech’s best know contribution to Texas cooking. Many Texas Towns stage Czech Heritage celebrations. Two of the best occasions to get your fill of kolaches, sausage, strudel, and dancing are the West Fest on Labor Day weekend in West and, in the spring, the National Polka Festival in Ennis, which features four halls of rousing polka bands.
She called it "Kuchen", but, er, it isn't. She was Swedish and learned German dishes from her German MIL....maybe something got confused in the translation. Number of kolaches is just an estimate. Please read through the entire recipe before making.
Received this in an email - it is a BIG recipe with four wonderful fillings. I suspect each filling as listed would fill the MANY kolaches this recipe will make. The first go round I plan to halve the recipe probably quarter two of the fillings. BTW, Myrtle did not indicate whether the apricots were fresh or dried - I am going with dried when I make it. She didn't give a cook time either - so watch closely after 15 minutes. No yield either so I am guesstimating on 100+. Thanks, Myrtle Killian!
These are mouthwatering. Make plenty for a weekend breakfast. It's worth the effort! They freeze well, too, and can be heated in the oven at 350 for about 12 - 14 minutes, or in the microwave for a few seconds if thawed (about 1 1/2 minutes if frozen). Very convenient for a grab and go breakfast.
There is a town in Texas called West. If you are driving down I35 you will pass it and you just have to stop!! They are the very best ever!! OH MY GOD!!
This recipe makes enough for your family and friends too but exact amount depends on how big you make them....
These are really good! I found this recipe on recipesource, but wanted to move it here so I could find it if I lost it. This recipe is from a lady named Mary S. Veselka. My husband said that these are better than the kolaches sold at out local donut shop here in Central Texas. They take a bit of time, but are well worth the effort, and the dough is pleasing to work with.
I've recieved some dings for not having more detailed instructions. I simply moved this recipe over from another site, and left the instructions as Mary wrote them. I've edited them a bit so that they are easier to understand.
