Busia's Bread

Busia used to make a bread that I beat myself up everyday for not writing down or remembering the recipe. It was a white bread with raisens. The bread was very large and round and she baked it on a stone in the regular oven. It had a topping of farmer's cheese and I think it was mixed with eggs that wasn't sweet but the whole thing was just too good for words. I'm sure it was a variation on a popular recipe but I can't find a starting point anywhere. We always called it "kowats" (that's how it sounded - certainly I'm sure that's not how it's spelled). Can anyone give me a place to start? A link or anything would be so very much appreciated.

Kołac recipe,

OK, now that I've gotten this to work here is the recipe I just received from my mom.....

Place a loaf of sweet dough in 9x13 pan

Filling: 4 cups cottage or ricatta cheese and 1/2 cup melted butter mixed until smooth. Add one cup sugar, three eggs, 1/2 cup cream, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla and salt/pepper to taste. Mix filling throughly and pour on top of sweet dough.

Topping: 1 egg, 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/8 cup milk. Mix throughly and pour over cheese mixture. Sprinkle with cinnamon, coconut or raisins.

Bake about one hour in 350 degree oven
