Fruity Breakfast Buns


1 kilogram bread dough- buy from your local supermarket
cup port
cup butter
1 tablespoon big Verlaque Burnt Orange Seville Preserve- any other jam or marmalade will work
1 cup cream
1 egg for egg wash


Buy the bread dough and allow to rise in a warm spot(window sill)
Place cranberries and sultanas in a glass bowl and pour port over it, allow to soak for a couple of hours. I keep a jar full of this stuff in the fridge.
Place the butter, ground almonds and jam in a processor and blitz into a creamy spreadable almond butter. You can also make this in advance, it lasts for a very long time in the freezer and is delicious on scones, warm bread or you can even use it to pan fry some bananas or apples for a tart.
Once the dough has risen, punch it back and form into a round ball. If you have a big enough workspace, you can dust it with flour and start rolling out the dough in an oblong shape. If not, divide the dough in two batches and start rolling it out. If the dough is rolled out( about 1cm thick), spread lavishly with the almond butter, drain the fruit from the port and sprinkle the cranberries and sultanas over the almond butter. Do not spread right to the ends of the dough. Dip your finger in the egg wash and wet all around the edges of the dough. Start rolling up the dough from the long side. Keep rolling, rolling, until you have a roll, almost like a jam roll in front of you. Take a sharp knife and cut rings(discs), about 2cm
Brush the rolls with egg wash. Drizzle a little cream onto each roll and allow to stand for about 10-15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Bake for 25-30 minutes and enjoy piping hot with a cup of coffee for a delicious late lazy breakfast treat.




These fruity Breakfast buns are just perfect for a lazy breakfast or even for a lunchbox filler. They require a little prep work, but with a few easy do-able steps you can have these buns ready in no time!!
