Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl with a paddle and mix until
incorporated. Scrape frequently.

Step 1 add all the wet, then the dry ingredients, then the yeast to a mixing bowl and mix
on slow speed, using dough hook for 4 minutes.
Step 2 Increase speed to high and mix for another 2-3 minutes. There should be
strength or tension in the dough when you pull on it.
Step 3 Add soft butter a bit at a time and mix on slow speed for another 4 minutes or
until the butter is incorporated.
Step 3 Increase speed & mix on high for another 6 minutes or until the dough comes
together and starts to slap around the bowl. The dough should be very elastic, shiny,
and not sticking to the bottom of the bowl. Don’t over mix; an overmixed dough will feel
hot to the touch.
Step 4 Add the fruit & orange blossom water and mix at a slow speed until the fruit is
combined. Be careful not to over mix.
Step 5 Cover dough & Let rest for an hour.
Step 6 While the dough is resting, prepare a loaf pan with oil and parchment.
Step 7 After an hour, turn the dough onto your floured countertop and carefully shape it
into a loaf.
Step 8 place the shaped dough in your loaf pan cover and let rise until your loaf is just
above the rim of your pan.
Step 9 once your dough has risen, place the loaf in the fridge to cold ferment overnight.
Step 10 after 2 hours place the baking sheet in the fridge overnight.

Step 1 preheat oven to 340 degrees.
Step 2 while the dough is still cold, spread the glaze over top, reaching the edges. And
place a generous amount of whole almonds into the glaze.
Step 3 bake at 340 for 40 minutes
Step 4 Let cool 30 minutes then serve
