INGREDIENTS :

  • 3/4 stick (75 g) butter
  • 1 1/4 cup (3 dl) milk
  • 1/2 cup (1 dl) sugar
  • 3 tbsp triple sec (orange liqueur), plus more for soaking
  • 3 tbsp grated orange/citrus zest
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 – 4 cups (8.5 – 10 dl) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp instant yeast, or 25 g fresh yeast
  • 1 cup (2.5 dl) chopped dried fruit

INSTRUCTIONS :

  • Melt butter, then stir in milk, sugar, liqueur, citrus zest and egg.
  • Mix flour and instant yeast (fresh yeast should be dissolved in the milk), then add wet ingredients and knead for at least 10 minutes.
  • Cover and rise until double the size, 1-2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, soak the dried fruit in triple sec.
  • Knead fruit into the dough and shape into a ball.
  • Place in a lined tin (I use a 7 inches (18 cm) wide, 4 inches (10 cm) tall pan) and prove until the dough reaches the rim, about 1 hour.
  • Brush with egg wash and bake at 350°F (175°C) for 45-60 minutes. Inner temperature should be 190-200°F (88-93°C) when done.
  • Cool in the pan covered by a towel.
