However you spell it, it's a rolled coffee cake made from a raised dough that has a walnut/chocolate swirl inside. This recipe was given to me by both my Aunt (in-law) and Mother-in-law. The family always enjoy it during every holiday/family gathering and since I've been successful at making it, that job seems to have been past on to me- The tradition shall continue. Yay!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup bread flour
- 1 3/4 cups unsalted butter
- 1/8 cup lemon rind (grated from 1 lemon)
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package dry active yeast
- 1 cup skim milk
- 4 egg yolks
- 1Into a food processor, place flours, lemon rinds, 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar and butter. Process until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
- 2In small bowl, warm milk to about 115°F stir in remaining tablespoon of powdered sugar and package of yeast. Let sit until bubbly (about 10 minutes).
- 3Separate 4 eggs - beat yolks and refrigerate whites, to save for filling.
- 4Add yolks to the yeast mixture.
- 5In large bowl place flour/butter crumbles and pour eggs/yeast over top.
- 6Keeping it inside the bowl, mix and knead the dough one handed (use both hands if necessary) until smooth - IMPORTANT: dough will be very gooey and sticky- DO NOT add more flour, just work the bumps out.
- 7Once dough is smooth - cover bowl tightly with plastic and refrigerate overnight (or at least 4 hours).
- 8Now work on your filling:.
- 9Place walnuts, powdered sugar and cocoa into food processor. Chop until walnuts are finally grounded.
- 10Transfer to a bowl and let sit inside refrigerator until dough is ready.
- 11When dough is ready: Heavily flour your work surface. (I like to spread out a large cheese cloth on my surface and flour it.).
- 12Remove dough from bowl and roll out into a large rectangle.
- 13Once that is formed, remove egg whites and whip them in a bowl until stiff peaks form.
- 14Fold in the grounded nut mixture.
- 15Spread this filling over the dough rectangle and starting at one side, roll it up like a jelly roll. (this is when it helps to have the cheese cloth under it.).
- 16Seal the finishing edge with a bit of water.
- 17Now lift it carefully and place it into a well greased and floured bundt pan. (this task can be done alone, but helps if you have someone to help you lift the roll.).
- 18Set pan in a cold oven to continue to rise for 2 1/2 hours or until dough is near the rim of the pan.
- 19Now bake at 325°F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. If during that time the top begins to get too dark before it's ready, lay a piece of foil over the top.
- 20Allow it cool, then turn out carefully.
- 21Serve plain or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- 22Refrigerate uneaten portions to maintain freshness. Slices are good cold or warmed in the microwave.
