Actually, the name provided here is incorrect. This is really called SIMIT. and it's got nothing to do with coffee cake. It's actually a kind of bread that is sold openly in the streets to people as a snack.

We enjoyed this with our afternoon tea, and then with breakfast the next day! Fantastic!

Unfortunately, I had some problems with this from the start - quite possibly user error. The dough did not come together at all, I had to add a good half cup of additional flour. The first rise was fine, but the second rise didn't rise nearly as much as expected, even after extra time in the nice warm spot I use for all my breads. The rings smelled absolutely divine while baking, but the flavor came across quite bland to us... Like I said, I must have done something wrong, but it just didn't quite work out.

Delicious! Nice and sweet, but not overly so. The cloves add an interesting balance, and the sesame adds a nice crunch. We had this with dinner last night, and I sliced up a bit for myself for breakfast this morning. Made for the 08 Photo Swap, and will CERTAINLY be making again. Thanks for a great recipe SusieCat!
