Recipe Ingredient

  • 5 green glace cherries, chopped finely
  • 5 red glace cherries, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp mixed peel
  • 50g raisins
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • (A):
  • 300g plain flour
  • 75g sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tbsp instant dry yeast
  • 1/8 tsp bread improver
  • 1 egg
  • 90g butter
  • 100ml chilled UHT milk
  • Combine to make cinnamon sugar:
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • Topping:
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp orange juice, warmed
  • 50g roasted, chopped walnuts


  1. Combine ingredients (A) in a mixing bowl at low speed for one minute. Add 3/4 of the milk to combine the mixture. Knead on low speed for one to two minutes; continue to knead for seven to eight minutes on medium speed.
  2. Feel the texture of the dough. If it is dry, add the rest of the milk. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Place dough in a basin that has been greased lightly with corn oil. Cover with a damp tea-towel. Leave aside to prove for 30 to 35 minutes or until double its size.
  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Flatten with a rolling pin and roll out into a rectangle (approximately 30cm x 20cm).
  5. Brush the surface with the egg and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon sugar, cherries, raisins and mixed peel. Roll up like a swiss roll from the longer side. Tighten the roll when you come to the end.
  6. Place roll on a greased tray. Join the ends to form a ring. Using a sharp pair of scissors, snip through to two-thirds of the ring.
  7. Turn each section on its side and arrange like a flower.
  8. Cover with a dry tea-towel and leave to rise again for 30 minutes.
  9. Brush the dough with beaten egg glaze and bake in a preheated oven at 190°C for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
  10. Pour warm topping over and leave on a wire rack to cool and allow the icing to harden.
  11. To make topping: Mix icing sugar and warm orange juice to a dropping consistency. Drizzle over the baked ring while still warm. Sprinkle with walnuts.
