Hot croissant ring cake is easy to make using ready-to-roll pastry and warm spices in a ring tin. The warm pastry is soft and doughy, bejeweled with dried fruit and coated with a sweet glaze.

Ingredients

  • For this Easter recipeyou will need:
  • 10g softened butter
  • 3 x (6x42g) Jus-Roll ready-made croissant dough
  • 3tbsp apricot jam
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1tsp ground mixed spice
  • 175g mixed dried fruit

Method

  • Heat oven to 220C/gas mark 7. Grease a ring or Bundt tin with butter.

  • Unroll each pack of croissant dough and lay together on your work surface. Pinch together the dough.

  • In a small pan, melt the apricot jam with the spices and 1tbsp water. Brush the mix over the pastry and scatter over the dried fruits. Roll up the dough to create a long roll and cut into 4cm pieces. Place each roll into the greased tin and pack in tightly to create a ring.

  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 mins until puffed up and golden. Allow to cool for 5 mins in the tin and turn out onto a lipped plate to catch any sauce.

  • In a small bowl, whisk the icing sugar and 1tbsp water to create a thick glaze. Roughly chop the Mini Eggs and set aside.

  • To decorate, drizzle over the icing and scatter with the chopped Mini Eggs.
