Orange cranberry star bread by @sean_laics 🎄
For bread: 3 tsp yeast. 1 cup warm water. 2 cups all purpose flour. 1/8 cup cane sugar. 1/2 tsp salt. 3 tbsp coconut oil.
For cranberry jam: 220 grams fresh cranberries. 1/2 cup orange juice. 1 cup sugar.
To make cranberry jam, put all ingredients in a saucepan, bring it to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down and cover it with a lit. Let it simmer for 5 min or until desired consistency.
Pour yeast in 1/2 cup warm water, sprinkle some sugar. Stir to combine and set it aside. Whisk flour, sugar and salt in a bowl until well combined. Add in oil and yeast mixture.
Mix it with a wooden spoon then knead it on a floured surface for a couple of minutes or until you form a smooth ball. Keep the dough in an oiled bowl to let it rise to double in size (around an hour).
Once the dough has risen, divide it into four equal balls, then roll out each ball into a circle with a rolling pin. Use an 9” dinner plate as a guide.
Spread the cranberry jam on the first piece of dough, leaving half an inch around the edges empty. Lay the second circled dough on top, spread the jam. Lay the third layer and spread the jam. Lastly, lay the final piece of dough on top.
Place the dinner plate in the center and cut out the extra edges. Place a small circular object (like a glass) in the center. Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces, follow by clock wise.
Then divide each triangle into an equal half. Now you should have 8 equal triangles. Divide each triangle into half again, to a total of 16 triangle.
Now, hold the edges of 2 triangles, gently twist them out to opposite direction, twice. Pinch the end together. Repeat the same process for the other 7 pairs of triangles.
Once done, set aside and let it rise for another 20 min. Bake at preheated 175 C in oven for 15 min.
