   light and bubbly. Cream 1 cup sugar and butter together. Add eggs, salt,
   and milk. Add the sponge and beat well. Add flour, a little at a time,
   until a dough as soft as can be kneaded is formed.  Knead until smooth.
   Cover with a damp cloth.  Set in a warm place to rise. When double in bulk
   turn onto lightly floured board.  Shape into buns. Place on well-oiled
   baking sheet.  Cover and let rise until treble in bulk. With a knife
   handle, make a hole in the center of each bun. Fill with prune preserves or
   any sweetened fruit desired. Bake immediately in hot oven (450ø F) 15-20
   minutes.  When baked sprinkle with powdered sugar.  36 servings. Mrs.
