This is a great recipe to serve at any meal and we like it sliced with a little butter on top and heated up for breakfast or given as a Christmas gift as it was given to us.

How to Make Holiday coffee cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Scald milk and cool until just warm. Sprinkle yeast over warm water in large mixing bowl. Add milk, butter, sugar, eggs, salt and extract. Add 3 cups flour and potato granules; beat until smooth. Add enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff dough.
  2. Knead on floured surface 8-10 min, until smooth and satiny. Place in greased bowl, turning dough to grease all sides. Cover and let rise in warm place until light and double in size, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch down, divide in half. Makes enough dough for 2 coffee cakes
    Prepare your filling by adding it all together and setting aside.
  4. Roll out dough for 1 cake on a floured surface to 15x9 rectangle; spread with 1/2 of the apricot mixture to within 1/2 in" of edges. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, starting with the 15" side. Place on greased baking sheet forming a ring and pinching edges together to seal. Make cuts in ring 1" apart, cutting 3/4 of the way toward center; Let rise again about and hour. Prepare your second cake the same way
  5. Bake in 350* oven 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool and Brush with a glaze of 2 cups sifted confectioners sugar, 2-4 Tble milk and 1 tsp almond extract. Place candied cherries on top
