  • Scald milk.

  • Cool to lukewarm.
  • Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon sugar in warm water.
  • Sprinkle yeast over warm water.
  • Let stand in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  • In large mixing bowl, combine lukewarm milk mixture and eggs.
  • Stir in dissolved yeast.
  • Add half the flour and beat well for 10 minutes.
  • With a wooden spoon, gradually add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead until smooth and elastic, adding additional flour as needed.
  • Place in well greased bowl and roll dough over to grease the top.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
  • Punch down and turn out on lightly floured surface.

  • Sprinkle filling on dough.
  • Roll dough up, starting from the long side.
  • Cut into 2-inch slices.
  • Place remaining melted margarine in bottom of pan. (I use two pyrex pans: one is 13 X 9, the other 8 x 8).
  • Arrange slices in pan and cover loosely with greased waxed paper.
