MainRecipesBread | Grandma Wade's Coffee Cake

   Grandma Wade's Coffee Cake submitted by karen waterbury
This is a recipe that my Grandma made for her family, then my mom made for us. I now enjoy making these for my family. I'm not sure where my grandma got this recipe. This is the best coffee cake we've ever had. Enjoy! (This is a recipe of Karen Waterbury-Karen Johnson's sister-in-law.)

Combine scalded milk shortening, sugar, and salt; cool to lukewarm.

Soften yeast in lukewarm water; stir and combine with cooled milk mixture; add about half the flour; add the beaten eggs; beat well. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough; mix thoroughly.

Turn out on a lightly floured board and knead about 10 minutes or until smooth and satiny.

Place dough in a warm greased bowl; brush surface very lightly with melted shortening; cover and let rise in a warm place (80- 85 degrees F) about 2 hours or until doubled in bulk.

Turn out on a board and shape into cakes or rolls. Put in pans and cover and let rise to hour or until doubled in bulk. Put on topping and bake in 375 degree oven.
