How to make it

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir and let sit for 3 minutes.
  • Add the melted butter(warm, not hot), milk, egg yolks, sugar, salt and flour. Beat until smooth. Do not knead the dough. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
  • In a small bowl beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, a little at a time, until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  • Stir in vanilla. Fold in ground nuts, set aside.
  • Place dough onto a lightly floured surface. Let it relax for 10 minutes. Divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a thin rectangle.
  • Spread nut filling over rectangles to within 1/2 inch from the edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side and tucking in the edges. Brush the seams with water to help seal. Pat the bread loaves gently, flattening them slightly.
  • Place seam side down on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, for about 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 350F for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from pans and let cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, for the glaze, combine confectioners' sugar, vanilla and milk. Spread the glaze over the nut bread, or drizzle in a desirable pattern.
  • This recipe makes 2 nut loaves. Delicious warm, or cold. Makes great dessert or breakfast food.

    Could I ask you is this a recipe handed down and made before?
    The recipe I made this holiday was from budapest and not sure about conversions I made and the dough was hard and crumbly and when I jellyrolled up they cracked. Any clues?

    This looks wonderful, Juels! And I like the fact that it's not too sweet. Glazes like this, allow you to experiment with different flavorings in place of the vanilla. I believe I may give it a try. Thanks for sharing, my friend :) ^5 + flagged as beautiful!

    Hey Jules we do have alot in common, I make a roll much like this during the holidays, pasted down from my slovackian Grandmother. Never put in fridg, I make it with the nuts and also some of the rolls with canned poppyseed. I like to work with yeast dough, will definatly try this and compare. Sounds wonderful!
