Christmas Ribbon


  1. Place yeast, sugar, water and in a bowl, stir then set aside for 5 minutes (or until you see bubbles).
  2. Place flour, oil, milk, currants, zest and cinnamon in a bowl, make a well, add yeast mixture and mix to form dough.
  3. Dunk your hands in flour then pull dough together and knead for 5 minutes until it feels elastic (silky).
  4. Pat the top of your dough with flour.  Put in a bowl, cover with damp cloth and let it grow to the size of a giant beanstalk!! 

To make the Wreath

  1. Once dough has grown, knock out the air by squashing the dough - flour your clean surface, then roll out into the shape of a rectangle (55cm * 25cm). 
  2. Spread  jam over dough, cut in half down the middle, then roll-up each rectangle (lengthways) until you have 2 big logs!
  3. Join the tops of each log together.
  4. Twist the logs together, then form a circle and join ends together at the top.
  5. Brush with milk, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  6. When cool, tie a ribbon in the top centre of your wreath.
