    Barb Gertz's Note:

    This recipe is bound to please, great for a brunch. The recipe courtesy Note: Fresh yeast, sometimes called cake yeast, is the key to this dough, which rises overnight in the fridge. Because fresh yeast is already moistened and active, you don't have to dissolive it in warm water before using. You'll find paper-wrapped 0.6-ounce cubes in the refrigerator case at your grocery store. This recipe calls for a half a cube: wrap remainder in plastic wrap and chill up to 1 week. Time does not include overnight or rising time.
