In the morning dissolve ½ yeast cake, 1 tbsp. sugar in 1 ½ c. potato water. Let it stand in a warm place till evening. Then add 4 cups flour, 1 ½ cups sugar and enough warm water to mixture to make a smooth batter. Next morning add about ¾ c. butter and some salt. Knead out into a soft dough. Roll out very thin and spread with fruit filling. Roll up as for jelly roll, place on greased pan and let rise one hour. Bake in a moderate oven 350 for ½ hour.
For fruit filling: Stew dried apples, add a little sugar and cinnamon to taste.
