Something magic happens to a filling of whipped egg whites, sugar, dates and orange when it's baked inside a yeast coffeecake. It's even better when it leaks out and makes a candylike crust on the baking sheet. I bet you could use refrigerated bread dough or crescent roll dough rather than make your own.
