1/2 cup warm milk (105°F to 115°F)
1/3 cup warm water (105° F to 115°F)
1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast
3 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
1 1/8 teapoons salt
2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam


3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest, if desired


Combine warm milk and water in bowl; add yeast. Stir to dissolve. Stir in 2 3/4 cups flour, sugar, butter, egg and 1 teaspoon salt until soft dough forms.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead dough, adding additional flour 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary, 5-10 minutes or until dough is smooth. Place dough into greased bowl; turn greased-side up. Cover; let rise 45-60 minutes or until double in size.

Knead dough 30 seconds on lightly floured surface. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Roll dough into 15x10-inch rectangle. Combine jam and 1/8 teaspoon salt in bowl. Spread dough with jam mixture to within 1/2 inch of edge. Roll up, beginning with 15-inch side. Place onto large greased baking sheet. Form into circle; pinch ends to seal. Cut 3/4 the way through dough every 1 1/2 inches on outside edge with kitchen shears or serrated knife. Twist each section of dough, turning it on side to form ring. Cover; let rise 30-45 minutes or until double in size.

Heat oven to 350°F.

Bake 20-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan; cool completely on cooling rack.

Combine powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon orange juice and orange zest, if desired, in bowl. Add enough additional orange juice for desired glazing consistency. Drizzle over cooled bread.

Bread Machine Directions: Omit 1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast. Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast, milk and water at room temperature. Use 3 cups all-purpose flour in place of 2 3/4 to 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. Read instruction manual of your bread machine. Prepare bread using dough cycle according to manual directions. Remove dough from bread machine; continue with shaping, rising and baking as directed above.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

We never get this for breakfast because I can't keep my family out of it! Great treat!
Very nice! Looks and tastes great! The bread is moist and soft. I can't wait to try different jams. Didn't use the salt in the jam either. This is going to make a wonderful breakfast treat tommorrow.
Made with all purpose flour and just regular jam (any flavor) for a moist, attractive and not overly sweet treat! We enjoy it for coffee break at our house.
