This is an old Hoosier Amish recipe for a tasty treat.

1 cake yeast
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 cup milk, scalded
1/3 cup sugar
5 Tbs. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
3 eggs, well beaten
3 3/4 cups flour
Melted butter
3/4 cup gran. sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts

Dissolve yeast in the 1/4 cup water. Set aside. To scalded milk and sugar, butter and salt. Let cool. Add eggs and dissolved yeast and enough flour to make batter stiff. Cover and let rise until mixture doubles in size. Punch down and let rise again until doubled in size. Make small dough balls about 3/4 inch in diameter and dip in the melted butter. Then roll balls in a mixture of sugar, nuts and cinnamon. Pile the dough balls loosely in an ungreased angel food cake pan and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake in 400 degree F oven for 40 minutes. After first 10 minutes of baking, decrease oven heat to 350 degrees F. Will be golden brown when done. Turn pan upside down and buns will come unstuck in a cluster of rolls stuck fast to each other. Everyone "plucks" from the hot cluster.

Note: Remember these old fashion recipes read exactly as given to me. Questions? I don't often have the answers.
