2 cakes yeast or 2 packages dry yeast
1 Tablespoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup scalded and cooled milk
7 cups sifted flour
Melted butter
Sugar
Raisins
Cinnamon
Nuts
1 beaten egg

Dissolve yeast and one tablespoon sugar in water.

Cream butter, one-half cup sugar. Add eggs.

Stir in yeast mixture and salt. Alternate milk and flour until the dough is moderately soft.

Knead until smooth. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. Roll out in oblong strip one-fourth inch thick. Brush with melted butter.
