1860 Raisin Coffee Cake

Yield one 9-inch coffee cake


  • 2 3/4 to 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons candied orange peel, finely chopped
  • Powdered Sugar Glaze

How to Make It

  1. Combine 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, salt, and yeast in large mixing bowl. Heat water and oil to very warm (120° to 130°); add to flour mixture. Blend mixture at low speed of electric mixer until moistened. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

  3. Punch dough down; stir in butter, egg, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and orange peel. Mix well. Spoon into a well-greased 6 1/2- cup ring mold. Cover and repeat rising procedure 45 minutes. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from mold; drizzle glaze over warm cake.
