   Cover loosely with plastic wrap and towel and let rise until doubled.
      The coffee cake may be formed in two different shapes; free form round
   loaves or molded rings.  Punch down the dough and divide in half. Knead the
   bean or beans (which will bring good luck to the person or persons who
   receive the slice) into one or both halves. Round into loaves and place on
   a buttered baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled about 1 hour.
   Preheat the oven to 375~ bake the loaves 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350~
   and bake 30 minutes. Let loaves cool on wire racks and frost with

   24-26 inches long.  Place in 2 buttered 5 1/2-cup ring or savarin molds,
   pinching ends together. Cover and let rise until double, about 1 hour.
   Preheat the oven to 350~; bake rings 40 minutes. Remove and let cool on
   wire racks.
