⅞cup/ 200ml Milk
½oz/ 15g Fresh yeast
4cup/ 500g Flour
14tablespoon/ 200g Buttersoftened
1tablespoonHoney or sweetener of choiceoptional
⅓cup/ 40g Cinnamon
1tablespoonHoney or sweetener of choice
7oz/ 200g Dried fruit mixture
½cup/ 100ml Milk
4tablespoon/ 50g Butter
2oz/ 50g Dried fruit mixture
Ø12" / Ø30cm baking tray or equivalent square one
In a cup, combine the warm (not hot!) milk and the yeast. Stir to blend. Let it stand for 5 minutes. If it gets foamy don't worry it's normal.
In a large bowl, mix the 4 cups of flour, 2 eggs, yeast and milk mixture, softened butter, the pinch of salt and the honey very well until the dough gathers into a ball. If the dough is too sticky, add some additional flour until it separates from the edge of the bowl, a little at a time if needed to form a soft dough.
Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for about 45 minutes to rise.
Meanwhile cut dried fruit and prepare cinnamon and honey for the filling.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until it's smooth and elastic, leave it out for about 10 minutes, covered with a kitchen towel.
Cover the flat dough with the cinnamon and optionally honey.
When it's done sprinkle the dried fruit evenly on it.
Roll it up.
Shape it into a ring, sealing the ends together. Do this on a baking pan or on a baking paper so we can slide the whole thing easily into a baking tray.
Carefully transfer the dough ring to the prepared baking pan.
Make 1″ / 2.5cm long cuts on the outside of the ring. In this case 17.
If the ring seems too tight we can always take a couple of pieces out and rearrange the ring. This will allow the dough more space to raise.
Optionally brush the top with egg yolks.
Put it into the 350°F / 180°C preheated oven and bake it for half an hour. Check if it's baked with a tooth pick or needle. Put it back if needed.
Prepare icing in a cup combine flour, vanilla, honey and some milk. Mix them until smooth. Put butter and the rest of the milk into a small pan and heat it.
Pour the content of the cup into the pan, mix them together evenly. Then pour the mixture on top of the cake.
Sprinkle dried fruit on top to decorate.
It's a lovely dessert whenever we feel like spoiling the family our looking something to nibble with our coffee.
