"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Ingredients:  
4 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. warm water
2 sticks of butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 Quickrise yeast packets
12 c. flour

Directions:
Directions:
Partially melt butter in microwave, also warm milk in microwave. Mix milk, butter and eggs in a medium sized bowl. Mix yeast, cup sugar and warm water in small bowl and set aside. Put 1 cup sugar and big pinch of salt in very large bowl. To this add the milk, butter and egg mixture and mix well. Then stir in yeast mixture. Mix in 4 cups of flour. Mix in 4 additional cups of flour, then finally the remaining 4 cups of flour. Cover bowl with cloth and let raise until double in size. (Note the dough will be very sticky.) After the dough has risen it is ready to make into rolls or kuchen. Pull out a portion of dough and put on a floured surface.
If making kuchen (breakfast) shape dough into a round flat shape to fit the pan (round cake pan) you will bake it in. Grease the pan you will be using and put the dough into the pan. Top the kuchen with melted butter and then sprinkle on sugar cinnamon mixture. Cover with cloth and let rise
gain until doubled. If making rolls use a rolling pin to roll out a rectangle. This will be very sticky dough so you will need to use flour generously to roll it out. Use a wide mouth canning jar ring to cut the rolls from the rectangle. Place rolls on a greased cookie sheet. Cover with cloth and let rise again until doubled. Bake in 350 oven. Kuchen about 15 minutes; rolls about 10 minutes.

Personal Notes:
When Zita asked what recipe do you associate with Grandma, all said Kuchen. This is a basic bread recipe from which she made breakfast kuchen and rolls. Problem was she did not have a recipe. So one day she came down and we made the recipe together so we could measure the ingredients as we made the recipe.
