Kakosh (Hungarian Chocolate Roll) II (D)
Source: "The Haimishe Kitchen," Volume I
Yield: 6 cake rolls

5 lbs. flour
2 cups sugar
6 sticks margarine
4 whole extra large eggs
2 cups water
4 egg yolks
3 to 4 tsp. salt
4 oz. fresh yeast dissolved in 1 cup warm water

1/2 cup cocoa and/or 1/2 cup ground walnuts
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 package vanilla sugar

Mix all the ingredients for filling.

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Set aside.

Sift flour into bowl. Put in rest of ingredients. Add dissolved yeast. Knead until smooth. Put into greased bowl and allow to rise until double in bulk.

Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Roll out each part on floured board to approximately 1/4" thickness. Brush the spread dough with oil. Spread filling on each portion of rolled out dough. Roll up jelly-roll fashion.

Using cookie baking sheets, place two rolls on each and bake at 350°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Poster's Notes:
This recipe is one of many in a cookbook put out by the ladies auxiliary of the Nitra Yeshiva in Mt. Kisco, NY. Most of the recipes are "old time" European favorites and very good. I also have their second volume which is also very good. They also have a Pesach cookbook that is excellent. The books can be bought in any major Judaica bookstore. Living in Brooklyn, there was no problem finding them.
