Yeast Cakes
« on: March 28, 2004, 12:09:21 PM »
My grandma makes these great yeast cakes every Easter morning. They are addicting. I found out that they are really nothing more than your basic pizza dough.

This works great with that extra dough you have in the fridge the morning after or for dessert.

Let dough come to room temp.
Roll out into ovals about 5 inches long and 3 inches wide.
Cut in half shortways so you have two little 'pockets'.
Let rise for 20-30 min.
Lightly flour and pan fry till puffy and golden brown ~1min.
Drain oil and let cool.

Cut them open along top of pocket, the straight edge and fill with your favorite ingredients. Some of my favorites are butter, honey, jam, eggs and bacon, potatoes.

Just another way to enjoy your dough. Good luck!

I made these earlier today for lunch and oh wow they were amazing.  I filled one with honey, one with a honey and butter mixture, one with fried eggs (runny yolk) and bacon (very peppery bacon) and just a little syrup, and one with (slightly) scrambled eggs and mild italian sausage.  I have 2 left over.  Migh tuse some grape or strawberry jam wiht em.  These are definatly up there with pizza.  I'll be makin them again.
