Coca de Sant Joan (bun with caramelized fruit)

Which area of Spain is it typical?




Ingredients: 1 kg of flour 55 g of sugar 50 g of lard 3 eggs 10 g of salt 50 g of baker's yeast lemon rind milk or water (as preferred) caramelized fruit (cherries, orange, melon ...)


Place the flour on the table in the shape of a flat-topped cone, break the eggs into the middle and add the sugar, salt, yeast (slightly diluted), lemon rind and butter. Mix well and gradually add the milk or water until you obtain an even dough which does not stick to your hands. Leave to stand for 20 minutes. Then roll the dough with a rolling pin until it is 1 mm thick and oval in shape. Lay out on a greased baking tray, place the sliced caramelized fruit on top and leave to rise at room temperature. Sprinkle with sugar and place in the oven at 160ºC until the dough is spongy and the surface golden.
