Well, I finally found it....

Here it is, its a little complicated to make in todays' standards but for those not faint of heart.......GO FOR IT !!

4 cakes yeast
2 cups lukewarm milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 large egg
1 cup cake flour
5 cups bread flour
3/4 to 1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
Cake Crumb Filling...  (recipe below)
Powdered Sugar Glaze..  (recipe below)

Dissolve yeast cakes in lukewarm milk.  Combine sugar, salt, shortening and egg in mixing bowl and mix 1 minute at low speed.  Add milk mixture and mix 1 minute.  Add cake and bread flours and nutmeg and mix only enough for flour to be incorporated, not more than 5 minutes.

Roll out to rectangle shape. Brush with butter and sprinkle with Cake Crumb Filling.  Roll up jellyroll fashion.  Slice into 1 1/2 inch slices.  Place on greased baking sheets, cut-side down , and pat out fairly flat.  Let rise until doubled.  Bake at 400 degrees 15 minutes.  When partially cooled, brush with powdered sugar glaze.  Makes about 18 rolls.

Cake Crumb Filling:
1 cup plain cake crumbs
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Mix together and use as directed above....  ( note !! )  If cake crumbs can't be located,  I suggest buying a small pound cake or cup cakes or even plain muffins and place in a blender or food processor and process until one cup is reached......

Powder Sugar Glaze:
1- 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
3 tbls warm milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Stir milk into sugar and add vanilla, stir until sugar is dissolved.
Add sugar to thicken or milk to thin glaze if needed
Use as directed above

Good Luck, and enjoy

Just a little PS:  I neglected to mention the following:  each serving contains:

361 calories, 322 mg. sodium, 24 mg cholesterol, 10 grams fat, 61 grams carbohydrates, 7 grams protein, 0.13 grams fiber.

The way I look at it is, it has protein, so it must be good for me.

And you have to take into consideration that if all of this unhealthy stuff wasn't in them, they would probably taste like cardboard.
