Easter Tea Ring

  • Put the milk and egg into the bread machine bin.
    Add in flour, salt, caster sugar and softened butter.
    Make a shallow hole in the center and put in the dry yeast.
    Set the machine to the "dough" setting.
    When the cycle is done, remove dough from bread bin and onto a floured surface.
    Knock the dough back, then roll it out to a rectangle measuring about 30 X 45 cm.
    Brush dough with melted butter and spread the copped fruits evenly over it.
    Mix together the brown sugar and spices, and sprinkle evenly over the fruits.
    Starting from the longer edge, roll up the dough as you would a swiss roll. Place rolled dough cut side down.
    Turn the 2 ends around to meet and seal by brushing with a little milk, pinching the ends together. Place on a prepared baking sheet.
    Using a sharp knife / scissors, cut through about 2/3 into the circle.
    Twist the sections so that they lie sideways (I did that but somehow it straightened out all by itself ... wooo).
    Cover the ring with plastic wrap and allow to rise for about an hour in a warm place or until almost doubled in size and puffy.
    Bake in a preheated oven at 200ºC for about 20 mins. After about 15 mins into baking, cover with foil to prevent over browning.
    Cool on wire rack.
    While the bread is cooling and still warm, prepare the icing.
    Mix together the icing sugar and orange juice or liquer until a drizzly consistency. If too watery, add more icing sugar, if too dry ... you figure it out.
    Drizzle mixture over the bread ring. Leave to cool.
    * If you're using almond flakes to decorate, sprinkle over before the icing sets.

    Happy Easter!
