midst of doing her Doctoral Thesis, my sister Milisa still finds
time to send me an orange recipe that rings true. Here's her recipe
for a Cranberry Orange Ring.
- 1 ½
cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 package
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
cup brown sugar
cup fresh orange
- 1 cup fresh
- egg yolk
- icing sugar
*This is a
double recipe. You can divide the dough into two portions, and
repeat the recipe within three days.
Into a bowl, add 1 ½ cups flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.
Into a large pot, add milk, water, and margarine. Melt, then pour
into the dry mixture. Stir, then beat with a mixer. Add egg, and
¾ cup flour. Beat again with the mixer.
Continue to add flour, using a spoon to mix the dough into a thick
consistency. Transfer into fridge for 2 hours.
Place a sauce pan on stove, turn to high, and add brown sugar,
orange, and cranberries (if you can't find fresh cranberries,
you can use frozen).
Stir, bring to a boil, reduce, and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove dough from fridge, and transfer to a floured cutting board.
Roll the dough into a rectangle using a floured rolling pin.
Apply a heaping helping of filling onto the dough.
Roll dough into a long, tight roll.
Transfer onto a non-stick baking sheet, pulling the two sides
of the dough in towards each other to form a ring.
Using a sharp knife, create tiny slits in the centre of each portion
of the dough.
Brush with egg yolk and water.
Bake in a 375º oven for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven, and dust with icing sugar.
an orange plate. Without a doubt, this recipe always works out
and you will have people coming back to your table over and over
again. Orange you glad I have a sister like Milisa?
