Raspberry Swirl Do-It-All Dough

Raspberry Swirl Bread from Do-It-All Dough

This recipe is for raspberry swirl bread that starts with Bake From Scratch magazine's Do-It-All dough. The dough is so versatile—you can use it for everything from deep dish pizza to cinnamon rolls.




  • 2/3 cup raspberry preserves any flavor preserves, jam or Nutella will work great!


  • 2 tbsp sugar


  • Start with Do-it-all Dough from Bake from Scratch. I made it with Bob's Red Mill Unbleached All-Purpose Flour. Add 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom and the zest of 1/2 orange or whole clementine to the mixture with the butter.

  • If your kitchen is chilly, like mine is in January, cover the bowl and set it in the oven with nothing but the light on and it will act as a proofing box.

  • Once the dough is doubled in size, turn it out onto the work surface and roll it to a 20x15-inch rectangle. Spread the preserves evenly over the whole surface.

  • Roll the dough into a log, starting at the long end.

  • Curl the twisted dough into a spiral, then place it into a parchment-lined 8-inch baking pan. Allow the dough to rise for 90 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in the bottom 1/3. Just before baking, sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 45-50 minutes. The top will be golden brown and the center will feel set when you poke with your fingers.
