My husband and I and our three children are missionaries in northern Spain. Special treats like this flavorful swirled bread are truly a taste of home for us. With a creamy,fruity filling and sweet glaze, it's hard to eat just one slice. -Mary Bergman, Navarra, Spain

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat sour cream and butter to 120°-130°; add to dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes longer. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 20 times or until smooth. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, egg, sugar, vanilla and salt until smooth; set aside. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half.
  4. Roll each piece into a 12x8-in. rectangle. Spread filling to within 1/2 in. of edges. Spoon jam lengthwise over half of the filling. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with the long side with the jam. Pinch seams to seal; tuck ends under.
  5. Place loaves seam side down on a greased baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut shallow slashes across the top of each. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  6. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm coffee cakes.
