Sweet christmasbread

Another christmasrecipe: sweet christmasbread! With a bit of orange through the dough! The recipe I've found on the blog of  Levine.


  • 560 grams flour;
  • 7 grams yeast;
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder;
  • 10 grams salt;
  • grated peel of 1 orange;
  • 2 eggs;
  • 65 grams sugar;
  • 90 mL vegetable oil;
  • 240 grams milk.
  • egg (to brush the bread);
  • pearl sugar (to sprinkle on top).

  • Bread baking machine or a mixer with dough hooks;
  • Baking plate;
  • Baking paper;
  • Brush.
This time I used my bread baking machine. I've added the ingredients as told in the description of the manufacturer and choose the dough program. This made sure the kneading and first rise were done by the machine.
You can, off course, knead all the ingredients by hand or in a bowl with a mixer. Afterwards you put the dough in a greased bowl. Lay a towel on top and let it rise for 1 hour room temperature.

After the first rise divide the dough in 7 pieces. Make a bun of them and let them rest for 20 minutes. Place a baking paper on the plate. Form the buns afterwards again and put them on the baking paper in a Christmas tree shape. Let the dough rise for 1 hour under a kitchen towel. At half time preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. After the one hour rise brush the bread with the egg. Sprinkle the pearl sugar on top. Place the bread in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. 

Tips and tricks:
  • If you don't have pearl sugar you can use candied sugar;
  • You can use plastic foil instead of a towel.
