Candy Cane Coffee Bread

You will need:

  • 1/2 cup apricot jam
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 packages deep pan pizza mix
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons Mayfield milk

Candy Cane Coffee Bread

Combine jam, walnuts, raisins and allspice in a small bowl and set aside. Prepare pizza mix according to package directions. Shape into a 16-inch long roll. Press a channel down the center, flattening dough to 4-inch width. Fill channel with apricot filling. Pinch top and bottom of dough together over filling. Press ends to seal.

Transfer seam side down to a large greased baking sheet. Form into a candy cane shape. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove to a wire rack to cool. Meanwhile, whisk confectioners' sugar, milk and salt in a medium bowl until smooth and a good spreading consistency. When bread is completely cooled, drizzle with frosting and attach walnut halves and candied cherries.

Yields 12 servings.
