Directions

  • 1 Dissolve yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes. Mix yeast with eggs, egg yolks, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter and orange water in mixer. Using dough hook, gradually add dried fruit, salt and flour; knead dough 5 minutes.
  • 2 Heat oven to 100°F, then turn oven off. Place dough in greased glass bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap. Place bowl in warm place. Let dough rise 45 minutes or until double in size. Punch down dough (stir in flour if dough is sticky).
  • 3 Grease cookie sheet. Form dough into 20-inch log; close ends, forming doughnut shape. Place on cookie sheet. Grease or spray outside of 6-oz glass custard cup. Place upside down in center of dough so ring keeps its shape while baking. Brush egg yolk on dough; top with dried figs and sprinkle with sugar. Cover loosely, let rise about 1 hour.
