The idea comes from this magazine:
2.5 c flour
salt to taste
1pkg (7g) dried yeast
ab. 50g butter, softened
135 ml (lukewarm) milk
1 egg, whisked
In a bowl, mix flour, salt and yeast, add the rest of the ingredients, mix till the soft dough forms and then knead it on a floured surface for +/- 7 min. Put into a greased bowl, turning once to grease top.Cover and let rise until double (+/- 2 hrs), in the meanwhile prepare the filling.
For the filling, you will need:
1/2 pkg dried mixed fruit (ab. 150g) soaked in water (start soaking the night before)
1 1/2 tbsp butter, softened
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tbsp flour
Drain the fruit, add butter creamed with sugar and flour, mix. On the floured surface, roll the dough out into a rectangle and spread the filling, roll it up, seal the seam and cut it in two, leaving one of the ends uncut, like a pair of legs. Twist them together and form a ring. Place on a greased baking sheet, cover and let rise for ab. 1 hour.
Bake at 200*C for +/- 25 min. Glaze with powder sugar + milk icing. Dried fruit ring tastes nice with a cup of coffie after dinner. Enjoy:
