About this recipe

This cake alone is responsible for half my weight problem. Chum is awesome; it goes great with coffee and a couple hundred relatives. P.S. You’ll never find this recipe anywhere else.


Into a bowl, break:

Then whisk in:


Stir everything together with a spatula or wooden spoon, and then add:

Turn onto a flour board and knead lightly until dough no longer sticks to your fingers (just push it around a little). Add more flour as necessary (approx. 1 more cup).

Cut in two halves. Roll each into a long loaf and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam.

Lightly whisk reserved egg yolk (maybe add a little water to make it thinner). Using fingers or a brush, spread yolk on top of loaves. Then make a couple of “Xs” with a knife and sprinkle ½ cup sugar over top. Bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a rack.
