Servings 20 scrolls

Ingredients
  

For the dough:

  • 3 1/2 tsp S&P dried yeast
  • 3 tsp caster sugar
  • 125 ml warm water
  • 100 ml whipping cream
  • 50 ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 80 g butter melted, cooled
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 600 g S&P French stick bread blend
  • 100 g S&P currant bread powder
  • 25 g S&P flour improver
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 110 g caster sugar extra

Egg glaze:

  • 1 tsp egg whisked with ½ tbsp water

Filling:

  • 250 g dried fruit mix
  • 120 ml apple juice
  • 2 tbsp speculaas spice
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 125 g butter melted & cooled

Vanilla icing:

  • 150 g icing sugar sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 g butter melted in ¼ cup boiling water

Instructions
 

  • Place the fruit in a small bowl with the apple juice, cover with cling film and microwave on medium power for 2 minutes. Stir and leave to absorb all the juice
  • For the dough, combine yeast, first measure of sugar and warm water in a small bowl. Cover and stand for 5 minutes or until frothy. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cream, milk, eggs, butter and oil. Sift flour into a large bowl with the currant bread powder and flour improver, then add 110g caster sugar and stir to combine. Make a well in the flour, then add yeast and egg mixtures, stirring to combine. Knead a few times until mixture comes together, then transfer dough to a clean, lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a clean tea towel and stand in a warm place for 1 hour until doubled in size. Knock the dough back and turn out onto a clean, lightly floured workbench, then knead for 10 minutes until you have a smooth dough. (Alternatively, place in an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook and knead for 6-8 minutes until smooth and elastic.)
  • Preheat the oven to 190°C. Grease and line the base and sides of 2 x 24cm springform cake tins with baking paper.
  • Combine sugar and speculaas spice in a bowl and set aside.
  • Divide the dough into 2 pieces and roll each piece into a 40cm x 20cm rectangle. Brush each piece with some melted butter, sprinkle with spiced sugar and scatter over the soaked fruit. Roll up each tightly from the long end to form a log. Cut each log into 10 slices or as many as you wish. Arrange in prepared cake tins, cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for 20 minutes.
  • Brush the tops with the egg glaze, then bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Cool slightly in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack.
  • Sift icing sugar into a bowl, then stir in vanilla extract and as much of the melted butter in water as required to form a smooth & shiny icing, runny enough to drizzle across scrolls. Drizzle icing over scrolls when they have cooled to just warm and serve.
