For the dough:

  • 500g all-purpose flour
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the filling and decoration:

  • 100g candied fruits (such as figs, oranges, cherries), chopped
  • 50g blanched almonds, chopped
  • 50g honey
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Sugar crystals for sprinkling
  • Whole almonds for garnish


1- In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm milk and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.

2- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, lemon zest, and orange zest. Add the softened butter and eggs, then pour in the yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms.

3- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.

4- Once the dough has risen, punch it down and knead it briefly to release any air bubbles. Divide the dough into two equal portions.

5- Roll each portion of dough into a long rope, about 18-20 inches in length. Twist the two ropes together to form a braided ring, pinching the ends together to seal.

6- Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Place the braided dough ring on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

7- In a small bowl, mix together the chopped candied fruits, chopped almonds, and honey. Spread this mixture evenly over the top of the dough ring.

8- Brush the dough with beaten egg, then sprinkle sugar crystals over the top. Place whole almonds on top for decoration.

9- Bake the Rosca de Reyes in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

10- Once baked, remove the Rosca de Reyes from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Enjoy this traditional Galician treat with friends and family during the Epiphany season!
