two 9-inch coffee cakes

How to Make It

Step 1

Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm water, stirring well. Let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly.

Step 2

Cream butter; gradually add remaining sugar and salt, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, milk, lemon juice, and nutmeg; beat well. Stir in yeast mixture. Add flour; beat until smooth.

Step 3
