Cabinkat's Sweet Kolaché Nut Roll

Recipe by CabinKat
READY IN: 1hr 55mins




  • In very large bowl, dissolve yeast in water and let set until foamy, about 10 minutes.
  • Add melted butter, salt, egg yolks, and 2 tablespoons sugar. Mix well.
  • Add flour to mix slowly until it forms nice dough. Should not be tacky. Add a bit more flour if needed.
  • Cover bowl and let raise in warm place 1 hour.
  • In mean time, beat egg whites with mixer until frothy or foamy. Add 1 cup sugar, slowly until stiff peak forms. Fold in vanilla, cinnamon, and walnuts. You can use Black walnuts if preferred.
  • When dough has risen, cut into 2 equal parts. Roll out on floured surface until you get a 12 X 18 (give or take) sheet. Spread nut mixture onto surface and leave 1 inch space all around. Roll like you would a jellyroll or pinwheel. Use water at last open area to seal, fold or tuck under slightly left to right sides. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet length-wise and repeat with second one.
  • Preheat oven 375º degrees.
  • Once both are placed on cookie sheet, poke with fork in about 5 areas on each to let dough breath. Cover with light towel and let rise about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove towel, place in center rack in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Should be golden brown.
  • Brush with melted butter if preferred.
  • When completely cooled, cut into 1" slices and pat with butter, serve with coffee (if preferred).
