yeast, active dry
beaten, divided in half
candied orange peel
butter melted for brush
In a mixing bowl combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix 1 minute. Next add water and half of the beaten egg. Mix. Add butter and mix until combined. Knead by hand until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
Cover the dough and let rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. After that, punch the dough down and make 6 round balls and allow them to rise for 10 minutes .
Now take out each ball and roll the dough out into an oval shape using a rolling pin (dough thickness should be about ¼ inch).
Next use a sharp knife or dough scraper to make 5 slits in the dough rounds. Do not cut all the way through to the edges – cut from the center of the disk both ways out toward the edge of the disk but not all the way to the edge. Now brush the surface of the dough with melted butter.
After that cut the candied orange peels into small pieces. Sprinkle some candied orange peel on the top of the dough. I used homemade candied orange peel – there are several recipes here on TastyKitchen – or you can purchase it. Roll the dough up into a log. Thin out both ends of the log. After that coil the log up into a snail shape and tuck the end under to to seal it.
Place on a greased baking tray and allow to rise for 10 minutes. Next brush the remaining beaten egg over the top of the bread.
Bake at 200 cup for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
