Episode 503: Orange You Glad?
Orange Cranberry Ring
A citrus delight...

In the 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
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup margarine
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup fresh orange
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries, chopped
  • egg yolk
  • water
  • 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.

Present on 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?
