Serves: 22 person(s)
Preparation Time: 30 mins
1 cup nonfat milk, warm
1 tsp sugar
3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp sugar substitute
1 tsp mixed spice
1/3 cup mixed peel
1/2 cup currants
2 Tbsp reduced-fat margarine or buttery spread, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 egg, extra
1 Tbsp nonfat milk, extra
1 Tbsp flaked almonds
2 tsp mixed peel, extra
Sift remaining flour, sugar substitute and spice into a large bowl. Stir in 1/3 cup peel and currants.
Combine margarine and 2 lightly beaten eggs with yeast mixture and pour into flour. Mix to soft dough. Transfer to floured board and knead for 5 to 10 minutes or until smooth and the dough springs back when pressed.
Spray a bowl with cooking spray, place the dough inside and cover with a damp tea towel and rest in a warm place for 45 minutes.
Punch down dough and knead until smooth. Divide mixture into three pieces and roll each into a long strand. Braid strands together and bring ends together to form a ring. Spray a baking tray with cooking spray and place loaf on the tray.
Lightly beat the extra egg and mix with 1 tablespoon milk. Brush this glaze over the top of loaf. Sprinkle with almonds and the extra peel. Bake in a moderate 350ºF oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
