Today's batch

Yesterday didn't get rid of the baking bug so today I rustled up a batch of Schiacciata con l'Uva and with the rest of the olive oil dough I put together something almost, but not quite, entirely unlike Chelsea buns.

At the end of working the dough, I added the end of a bag of flaked almonds and some snipped up soft dried apricots. After the rise, I rolled it out on the worktop, spread it with apricot jam, added some more snipped up apricots and a dusting of allspice, then rolled it up, cut it into 9 and placed in a square baking tin to prove. When I took it out of the oven I brushed the tops with an icing sugar wash.
