Filling recipe Steps
Put all ingredients together except eggs
stir over low heat until bubbling
remove from stove
add well-beaten eggs & stir
set aside until dough is ready
DOUGH MIXTUE STEPS:
Scald the milk
disolve yeast in warm water (110 F)
add dash of sugar to hasten yeast action
After scalding milk, add sugar, butter and salt
set aside to cool
gradually add flour until thick
add eggs and yeast to mixture
gradually add more flour until dough is soft and elastic...work it thoroughly until it is a soft and pliable
Place in greased bowl and turn once.
Place in warm plate and let rise until double in size.
Now we have to spread the dough on a table which is 3.5 feet by 6 feet.
Lay a cloth on the table or work area
Lay the dough in the center of the cloth and use your fingers to pull the dough outward to the ends of the table....the dough must be paper thin with no holes.
Now, take WALNUT FILLING MIXTURE and spread evenly on the entire surface.
With a knife, cut around all edges to the end of the filling.
Start at the long end of the table and roll the dough up.
Put in a well-greased pan about 12x18. I prefer to cut in loaves and seal the ends but you can twist it aroung the pan.
Let rise, one-half to 3/4 of an hour.
Bake at 350 deg for about 40 min.
Watch that it does not get too brown..
If it looks too brown, turn heat down.
Take out of oven and let it set for about 15 min.
With a spatula, loosen it thoroughly so that it is not sticking.
Turn pan upside down on a cloth and revert it back to upright and butter the top..
Cover with cloth and let cool.
Don't expect perfection the first time, but you will do better each time.
Comments: "Bebe has since passed away and we thank her for leaving us with this recipe!" - John "Guba" Gobats "All the recipeos of pizza need yeast or bankig powder for the rising action of the dough. However, you can substitute for bankig powder by the following method:For each 1 teaspoon bankig powder called for in a recipe, use:1/4 teaspoon bankig soda" - Vinod
