The apricot roll wreath is made of a heavenly fluffy yeast dough. It tastes very soft and juicy at the same time. The filling of dried apricots, raisins and apricot jam is fruity and sweet. It combines perfectly with the barely sweetened dough.

Ideal pastry for Easter

A yeast wreath fits perfectly, especially, of course, at Easter. This pastry not only sweetens the taste of the holidays, but also visually decorates your Easter table. Because the bread wreath, shaped like many filled hearts, is simply an eye-catcher on the dining table and is guaranteed not to leave anyone cold.

Filling alternatives for the apricot roll wreath

I filled the sweet roll wreath with apricot jam, dried apricots and raisins. The three ingredients were pureed together to a fine mass for this. Alternatively, you can fill the Easter wreath only with jam. Instead of apricot jam, you can also use another jam, but it should have a firm consistency. Or fill the bread wreath with ground nuts, marzipan or poppy seeds. It also tastes delicious with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. If you use dry ingredients to fill the bread wreath, brush the rolled out yeast dough lightly with water or soft butter before spreading the filling on it, so that it adheres well to the dough.

  • It is important that milk is lukewarm and the rest of the ingredients are room-warm, so that the yeast dough can rise quickly.
  • You can replace kefir with natural yogurt.
  • Instead of dry yeast you can use fresh yeast. For the recipe below you will need 22 g of it.

  • Cut the wreath into strips about 3 cm wide from the outside, leaving a space of about 2 cm from the inside each time.
  • Turn each two adjacent strips of dough over to the outside with the cut facing up, creating a heart each time. (See the step-by-step pictures here above.)
