DIRECTIONS

  • Heat milk, butter 1/3 cup sugar and salt; stir until the sugar dissolves. Set aside. Mix yeast, warm water and 1 teaspoon sugar; let stand 10 minutes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups flour, milk mixture, yeast and eggs; beat until smooth. Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Place dough in a greased bowl, turning one to grease top.
  • Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, prepare topping.
  • Combine sugars, flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut butter into dry ingredients; set aside.
  • Punch dough down; divide in half. Pat or roll each half to fit a greased 9-in. cake pan.
  • With a fork, pierce entire cake top.
  • Divide topping and sprinkle over each cake.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.
  • For filling, combine flour and milk in a saucepan; cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.
  • Cool.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream remaining ingredients until well-mixed. Add flour mixture and beat until fluffy.
  • Cut each cake in half horizontally; spread each with half the filling.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
