    Julesong's Note:

    An old fashioned sweet dough recipe for coffee cakes, coffee bread, babka, buns, kolacky, rolls, and so on. Prepare 24 hours ahead of time. This rich dough needs the chilling and long rest period to produce a wonderful versatile dough. You may halve the recipe if you wish.
