Candied Orange Peel Sweet Bread

We get easily oranges during winter in every corner of the street, yep here its a peak season and we never fail to get them. I tried my hands in making candied orange peels recently at home and they came out extremely fabulous. Its quite easy to make homemade candied orange peels which i used them in making a sweet bread recently with it. With a wonderful orange flavour, this bread will definitely suits prefectly for a breakfast,brunch or else for a quick snack. My kids just enjoyed having this bread, with nutella spread or a simple fruit jam this bread will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.

If you dont have candied orange peel, you can go very well with freshly grated orange zest for making this bread. I used an egg in this sweet bread, you can skip them very well with silken tofu or with cream chesse as egg subsitute in this bread. Dont forget to make this bread,if you get easily and cheaply oranges. You can conserve very well candied orange peels in an air tightened box for more than three months even in room temperature.Do check ChampaSrivalliSumana Deepak,Veena,Jayasri and Preeti Deo wat they baked for the 13th day of bake-a-thon.


3cups All purpose flour
1no Egg (beaten)
1/4cup Melted Butter
1/3cup Sugar
1/4cup Luke warm water
1tsp Salt
1/4cup Candied orange peels (chopped)
1/4cup Orange juice
1tbsp Active dry yeast
Egg yolk or Milk for brushing before baking
Few sugar pearls

Mix the warm water,sugar, yeast together,keep aside until its turns frothy.

In a large bowl mix the beaten eggs,salt,melted butter,candied orange peels and flour together, add the foamy yeast mixture and knead along with orange juice as soft and smooth dough.

Arrange the dough in a greased bowl and keep in warm place for an hour until the dough gets doubled..

Punch down the doubled dough and knead well.

Divide the dough as 8-10 medium sized balls or else if you have loads of patience you can make your bread as i did.

Place them in a greased round pan,cover the pan with a towel and keep again in a warm place, let it double again atleast for an hour.

Once the dough doubled the volume, preheat the oven to 375F,brush the dough with egg yolk,springle the sugar pearls and bake for 15minutes.

Turn down the oven to 325F and bake for 10-12minutes until the crust turns golden brown and the bread sounds hollow when tapped in the bottom.

Keep aside and let them cool completely..

Enjoy for snacks or breakfast with any sort of spreads.

thats such a pretty looking bread. looks almost like a doily. did you chopped the candied peels that fine or grated them? guess these thin strips would take lesser time to cook than the thicker strips I generally do.
