- 15 ml (1 tbsp.) maple sugar
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) warm water
- Flour, as needed
- 60 ml (1/4 cup) golden raisins
- 190 ml (3/4 cup) mixed candied fruit
- 810 ml (3 ¼ cup) all-purpose flour
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 85 ml (1/3 cup) maple sugar
- 2 ml (1/2 tsp.) salt
- 5 ml (1 tsp.) vanilla extract
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) maple butter
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) ground almonds
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) butter, softened
- 10 ml (2 tsp.) orange zest
- 10 ml (2 tsp.) lemon zest
- 45 ml (3 tbsp.) maple sugar
- 45 ml (3 tbsp.) powdered sugar
- In a glass, dissolve yeast and maple sugar in a warm water. Leave to foam for 5 minutes.
- In a bowl, dust raisins and dried fruit in a little flour. Set aside.
- In another bowl, mix flour, eggs, maple sugar, salt, dissolved yeast and vanilla extract. Beat for 5 minutes. Cover the dough with a clean kitchen cloth and let rise for about 1 hour (or until the dough has doubled in volume).
- In another bowl, combine maple butter and powdered almonds. Set aside.
- Add the softened butter, floured raisins and fruit, and citrus zests into the risen dough; knead to mix well. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out into a rectangle.
- Spread the maple butter and almond mixture in the middle of the dough, leaving the edges free of mixture. Roll up the dough along the long edge.
- Place the roll on a cookie sheet, cover and let rise for about 1 hour (or until the roll has doubled in volume).
- Preheat the oven to 180˚C (350˚F). Uncover the roll and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
- In a bowl, mix maple sugar and powdered sugar and sprinkle on top of baked roll.
Lisa’s advice: sprinkle the top of fresh baked rolls with La Ferme Martinette’s Côté Jardin pure maple sugar with fruits; a delicious new way to discover our great fruity maple products!
Variation: Replace the raisins by dried cranberries or dried blueberries. Add pure maple sugar nuggets.
