Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, mix together first four ingredients. Keep aside.
  2. Add sugar to warm water, Mix stir in yeast, cover and keep for 10 minutes. It should turn frothy.
  3. Add orange juice and vanilla extract to the yeast mixture.
  4. Add to the flour mix. Knead for 5-7 minutes to get a very smooth, slightly sticky and satiny dough.
  5. Transfer to an oiled bowl. Turn around once to coat evenly with oil. Cover and keep for 1 ½ hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
  6. Prepare filling while the dough is rising.
  7. Mix sugar, cinnamon and ginger powder. Add candied orange peels.
  8. Grease one 8 x 4 inches (preferably nonstick) bread pan. Line the bottom with a parchment paper. This helps the bread to come out clean.
  9. Remove dough from the bowl to a floured counter. Roll out dough into 20 x 12 inches rectangle. If the dough is very sticky while rolling, dust with flour and keep rolling.
  10. Brush the rolled dough with oil. Sprinkle the mixture evenly on rolled dough.
  11. Starting with the long end, cut the dough into 5 strips from top to bottom. Stack these strips on top of one another and then cut the stack of strips into 6 equal squares.
  12. Place all the stacks of dough squares together end to end in the greased loaf pan. Cover and allow to rise for another hour.
  13. Bake in a preheated oven at 360°F for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  14. Remove from the oven after 10 minutes. Remove from the pan.
  15. Cool on the rack. Serve warm.
