No Knead Refrigerator Rich Sweet Dough

I make it the night before, or you can use the basic sweet dough or bread dough.

This is the No Knead Refrigerator Dough.

¾ cup milk
½ cup sugar
2 tsp salt
½ cup margarine
½ cup warm water
2 pkg or cakes yeast
1 egg
4 cups unsifted flour

Scald milk; stir in sugar, salt, margarine; cool to lukewarm. Measure warm water into large warm bowl, sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved; stir in cooled milk mixture, egg and half the flour; beat till smooth; stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover tightly with waxed paper or foil; refrigerate at least 2 hours. This is easy to roll out thin.

Filling:
2 eggs
¾ lb walnuts, ground
½ cup honey or brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla or ½ tsp vanilla and ½ tsp lemon extract

If too thick spread thin with milk.

Roll out dough and spread with filling and roll up like a jelly roll. Place on greased cookie sheet or cut in loaf size and put in bread pans; cover and let rise until double in bulk, about 1 hour.

Bake 350 degrees F 40 to 50 minutes or until it sounds hollow when rapped with knuckle.

Hushpuppies

Hushpuppies

Hushpuppies

1 ¾ cups white cornmeal
1 ¾ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp salt
¾ cup milk
1 egg
¾ cup onions or peppers, finely chopped
Oil for deep frying

Sift together dry ingredients. Stir in milk, beaten egg and chopped onion or peppers. Beat for 3 minutes with a wooden spoon. Add water or cornmeal if batter is not stiff enough to drop from the spoon in small amounts.

Place oil in a deep fryer and heat to 375 degrees F. Drop spoonfuls of batter into hot fat a few at a time. Fry until brown on all sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.

Fry hushpuppies and serve them with any steaming hot fish, stew, or soup.
