Flour, 3 1/2 cup
Yeast, 1 package (1/4 oz)
Milk, 1 cup
Granulated Sugar, 1/3 cup
Apple Sauce, 1/3 cup
Salt, 1/2 tsp
Almond Paste, crumbled, 2 oz (more or less)
Butter, 1/4 cup
Sugar, 1/2 cup
Almond Paste, 1 oz (more or less)
almond extract, 1/2 teaspoon (or more to taste)
Turn onto floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn on a lightly floured surface; roll into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle. In a small mixing bowl, beat filling ingredients until smooth (I prefer to double the extract because I LOVE the almond taste). Spread over dough to within 1 in. of edges.
Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Place on a greased baking sheet, sealing ends to form a ring. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375Â° for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.
There is a glaze you can top it with which is not included in the nutritional information:
Milk, 2 to 3 tablespoons
almond extract, 1 teaspoon
confectioners' sugar, 1 3/4 cup
sliced almonds, optional
In a small mixing bowl, combine milk and almond extract; whisk in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Drizzle over coffee cake. Sprinkle with almonds if desired. Yield: 12 servings.
Number of Servings: 12
