I WAS SO EXCITED WHEN I FOUND THE RECIPE OF BUBBYS BULKAS. THE

LIST OF INGREDIENTS WERE IN HER OWN HANDWRITING. THE

INSTRUCTIONS ARE IN YOUR MOTHERS HANDWRITING. IF YOU WANT TO

BAKE IN YOUR HOUSE THAT'S FINE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME THERE WITH

YOU I WOULD BE GLAD TO HELP AS I HAVE WATCHED HER DO IT SO MANY

TIMES THAT I KNOW SOME OF THE PROCEDURES SHE WENT THROUGH.

 

BUT HERE IS THE RECIPE:

4 1/2 CUPS FLOUR

2 PKG. YEAST IN 1'2 CUP WARM WATER

1/2 CUP SUGAR (FULL MEASURE)

1 STICK MARGARINE

1/2 CUP WARM MILK

I TSP. SALT

2 EGGS

 

DIRECTIONS: YOUR MOTHER HAS THE EGGS LISTED AS 2 YOLKS AND 3

WHITES, AS THE THIRD YOLK MIXED WITH A LITTLE WATER IS TO BRUSH

ON TOP OF THE BOULKAS BEFORE BAKING THEM.

 

STIR 1 STICK MARGARINE, 1 TSP SALT, AND 1/2 CUP SUGAR UNTIL CREAMY

ADD 2 YOLKS AND THREE WHITES

LAST ADD 2 YEAST PACKAGES THAT HAVE BEEN FOAMING IN 1/2 CUP

WARM WATER WITH A PINCH OF SUGAR IN IT

ADD 1/2 CUP WARM (NOT BOILED) MILK

ADD ONE CUP FLOUR AND ADD 2ND CUP AFTER THE FIRST CUP IS MIXED

IN WELL.

THEN ADD 2 MORE CUPS FLOUR KNEAD WITH KNUCKLES, IF DOUGH IS

STICKYADD FLOUR AND KNEAD ON A BOARD UNTIL SILKY

WARM UP POT AND COAT IT WITH OIL, PUT IN OVEN WITH A PAN OF HOT

WATER UNDER IT (THE WATER ON THE SHELF UNDER THE POT, NOT THE

POT SITTING IN THE WATER)

AND A TOWEL (AND BUBBYS SWEATER, IF I CAN FIND IT) OVER THE TOP

OF THE POT

LEAVE FOR AN HOUR, PUSH DOWN AND RETURN TO POT TO RAISE

ANOTHER HOUR

WHEN RAISED, TAKE OUT OF POT AND KNEAD CUT INTO TWO PIECES AND

KNEAD.

ROLL OUT AND CUT EACH PIECE INTO 8 PIECES, (16 PIECES ALL

TOGETHER) KNEAD EACH PIECE AND LAY ON TOWEL.

ROLL OUT EACH PIECE AND DOT THE MIDDLE OF EACH WITH OIL. THEN

FILL WITH JELLY, CINNAMON AND SUGAR, NUTS OR WHATEVER YOU

WISH, LIKE APPLES AND RAISINS..PUT IN GREASED PAN AND LET RAISE,

THEN BAKE UNTIL BROWN (20 MINUTES OR SO)

 

WELL , HERE IT IS, GOOD LUCK..... SHIRLEY
