Damn Good Danish

Following the success of our 'Mega Massive Mars', we decided to embark upon another pimping challenge, but this time with a snack that didn't contain chocolate. After carefully looking through a bread machine cookbook we found a recipe for Danish pastries and this seemed perfect.

The ingredients required were:

1 egg
1 tbsp water
8oz bread flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tbsp caster sugar
6oz butter
1/2 tsp salt
11/2 tsp dried yeast
3oz dried apricots and raisins
2oz pecan nuts
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp icing sugar
1 tbsp orange juice

This recipe said it makes 12 normal danishes, so we reckoned if we just made 1 out of this mixture it would be pimped to the right proportions. Next we shoved the water and egg into the bread machine pan, this was covered in the flour, sugar cinnamon, butter, salt and yeast.

1 and a half hours later the pastry dough was done but it looked a little odd, retracing our steps we discovered that only an ounce of butter should have been added so with the deft use of kitchen roll we attempted to soak up some of the grease. Unexpectedly this didnt really work but we didnt let it bother us and carried on anyway!

We then let the mixture chill in the fridge while we prepared the filling. In a bowl we creamed some butter, sugar and cinnamon, and separately also finely chopped the apricots and pecans.
