  1. Add orange juice, egg, margarine or butter, salt, bread flour, sugar, and yeast to the bread machine pan according to manufacturer's directions. Select dough cycle. When dough cycle is complete, remove dough from machine. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 24x8-inch rectangle. In a small mixing bowl stir together almond filling, almonds, and orange peel. Spread filling over dough to within 1/2 inch of the edges.
  3. Fold dough loosely from a short side, making about eight 3-inch-wide folds. (This is similar to rolling a jelly roll, except you fold the dough instead of rolling it.) Transfer to a lightly greased cookie sheet. On one of the long sides, make eleven 2-1/2-inch cuts from the edge toward the center at about 3/4-inch intervals. Flip every other strip of dough over to the alternate side. Slightly twist each strip, exposing the filling. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double (about 30 minutes).
  4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. If necessary, cover loosely with foil during the last 5 to 10 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Lightly brush the bread surface with orange juice; sprinkle with sugar. Serve warm.

  • If you have an insulated baking sheet, use it so the loaf bakes through without overbrowning on the bottom.

The flavor of this was outstanding, but the instructions on slicing through the dough and folding back layers, twisting, whaterver - was a little confusing. Eitherway, my sons LOVED it. Yummy combo of orange with almonds.
