After watching the sweet dough episode of the Great British Bake Off and seeing this delicious couronne again, I decided to give this recipe a try and changed it into a Cinnamon Date Couronne.
A buttery, rich dough – filled with sweet medjool dates, raisins & walnuts – is then rolled, split and twisted to make this gorgeous crown shaped bread.
I substitute the apricots from the original recipe with dates. Because of their natural sweetness I used less sugar for the filling. The dates and the butter in the filling melt together into a gorgeous caramel.
