Project Dessert

Started going Through a 200 page dessert book 1-at-a-time daily until i got to #80 and the recipes were getting horrible so #100-#200 will be desserts i find that look interesting to make...enjoy!


Price to make: $5.85

Yield: 5 Loaves

Time: Prep – 45 minutes, Cook – 1 hour



5lbs flour (10 cups)

2lbs margarine (1lb / 16oz)

1 3/4 cup sugar

3 1/2 cups water (1 3/4)

4oz yeast (2oz fresh / 3 tsp dried)

1 tsp vanilla sugar (1/2 tsp)

5 eggs (3)

1 cup orange juice (3/4 cup)

1 1/2 tsp salt (1/2 tsp)



2 cups cocoa (1 cup)

6 cups sugar (3 cups)

1/2 cup flour (1/4 cup)

2 Tbsp vanilla sugar (1 Tbsp)



1/3 cup margarine (1/4 cup)

1/2 cup sugar (1/4 cup)

3/4 cup flour (1/3 cup)

1/2 Tbsp cinnamon (1 tsp)

  • Mix dough well.
  • Divide dough into 5 equal portions.
  • Roll each part into a rectangle.
  • Mix together filling ingredients, and then sprinkle each dough with filling and roll “jelly roll” style, starting from the wide end.
  • Mix together topping ingredients and sprinkle on top.
  • Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Tips: Ingredients in parentheses are the ones I used. By dough make the water lukewarm and dissolve the yeast inside. Once you roll into a rectangle pour the filling mixture over the whole thing and pat into dough, it would probably taste better if you spread margarine first. When rolling into “jelly roll” style make sure to roll the dough very small, meaning roll it as many times as possible. When mixing topping ingredients it should form a crumb mixture. When sprinkling also press into dough. Once dough is rolled bake the loaves in a loaf pan. In my opinion add more cinnamon to the topping mixture. Overall this was a pretty decent tasting cake.
