1 pkg. dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
1 c. lukewarm water
2-2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. potato flakes
White cornmeal

Add yeast to water and mix well. Add rest of ingredients and enough flour to make a manageable but soft dough. Put in greased bowl and let rise until doubled. Dump out on floured surface and pat 3/4 inch thick (no thinner). Cut with tuna fish can and place on cookie sheet which has been sprinkled liberally with cornmeal. Let rise one hour. Sprinkle electric fry pan with cornmeal and heat to 350 degrees. Cook muffins 8 minutes on first side, turn and cook another 5-8 minutes on second side. Be careful not to crowd muffins in fry pan. These muffins keep best in the refregerator.

A recipe from my niece, Denise Frank.

2 pkg. compressed yeast
5 oz. butter
2 c. milk
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
5 to 6 tsp. ground cardamon
5 1/2 to 6 c. flour

In large bowl dissolve yeast in 1/4 to 1/3 c. warm (body temperature) milk and 1/4 tsp. sugar; cover with cloth, let bowl sit in warm water bath. (This helps the yeast to rise more quickly.) Melt butter in a saucepan, add milk, sugar and salt, allow mixture to reach body temperature. Mix cardamom and half the flour; add to butter – sugar – milk mixture. Add yeast mixture. Combine thoroughly.
Gradually add remaining flour and knead until dough becomes pliable and not sticky. Put in bowl, cover loosely with a cloth, allow to rise in warm, draft-free place until double (about 45 min.). Punch down dough. Divide into 4 sections. With each section, do the following: roll out to a rectangle, spread rectangle of dough with butter and sprinkle with sugar (white or brown) and raisins. Roll dough up lengthwise into a long roll and pinch edges together. Cut crosswise into buns about 1 inch apart. Set on greased cookie sheet, cut side up. Cover with cloth and let rise another 30 min. Baste with beaten egg and sprinkle with almond bits, pearl sugar, or whatever decoration you wish, if desired. Bake 7 to 8 minutes in 450 degree oven.
