DIRECTIONS

  • Cream together sugar and butter. Then add eggs, milk, 1 package of yeast (2 tablespoons bulk yeast) dissolved in 3 tablespoons of warm water, flour, salt and vanilla. Beat all of these ingredients together. Then set dough aside and let it rise, until double in size.
  • When your coffee cake dough has risen to double the size (this may take about 2 hours) put it in a 9x13" greased pan and spread with topping.
  • To make the topping: Combine sugar, cinnamon, melted butter and nuts (you can use maraschino cherries or candied red and green cherries if you don't like nuts).
  • Place in a cold oven and leave it in there overnight to rise.
  • The next morning turn oven to 350 degrees and bake for 1/2 hour. Take out and serve warm.
