Oh I love yeast, and I love sweet bread, yeast cakes, making them are just fun, and so many varieties!
Thanks again Ria from Ria's Collection and Jamie from Life's a Feast, this month's Daring Baker challenge is so much fun. The PDF recipe is here and I won't repeat, download the recipe, it's really good.
Yeasted cakes are great for breakfast, afternoon tea, morning tea whatever, and it's super easy when you need to bring something to share at work as well...
Our family loves fruit breads and fruit cakes, so we made a fruity version of this lovely cake:
Mixed fruits with peels and cherries
Golden syrup (or dark corn syrup)
All spice powder
1 tbsp of cherry liqueur,
Soak for 2-3 hours.
Make dough, proof, roll out to a square, make meringue and spread on.
Spread on fruits.
Roll up and make a ring.
Brush on egg wash after the second proofing.
Bake, and brush on a bit of cream, sprinkle on cinnamon sugar....
And cut and eat...
