1 1/2 cups (375ml) reduced-fat milk, warmed
2 teaspoons (1 sachet/7g) dried yeast
2 teaspoons caster sugar
1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg, lightly whisked
4 cups (600g) plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
100g butter, softened
1/2 cup (110g) brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
100g marzipan icing
1/2 cup (160g) cherry jam
150g pitted cherries, finely chopped
2 teaspoons caster sugar, extra
1 cup (160g) icing sugar mixture

  • Combine milk, yeast and caster sugar in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 mins or until foamy. Whisk in egg.
  • Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre. Add the milk mixture and use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to stir until just combined. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 mins or until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 1 hour or until dough doubles in size.
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Grease and line a 10cm x 22cm loaf pan. Combine butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to a 30cm x 40cm rectangle. Spread half the butter mixture over two-thirds of the dough. Fold into thirds to enclose. Roll out to a 30cm x 40cm rectangle. Spread with remaining butter mixture. Fold into thirds to enclose.
  • Roll out dough to a 30cm x 40cm rectangle. Use your fingers to roll the marzipan into a 40cm log. Place on 1 long side of the dough. Spread jam evenly over dough. Sprinkle with two-thirds of the cherry.
  • Starting from the marzipan side, roll up into a log. Cut diagonally into 8 even slices. Arrange, cut-side up, randomly in the prepared pan. Cover and set aside in a warm, draught-free place for 20-30 mins to rise.
  • Bake for 10 mins. Reduce oven to 180C. Bake for 20 mins or until golden and cooked through. Set aside in the pan for 5 mins to cool. Turn onto a wire rack.
  • Combine remaining cherry and extra caster sugar in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until cherry softens. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing with the back of a spoon. Stir in icing sugar until a runny paste forms. Drizzle over loaf. Serve warm or at room temperature.
