Method

Add all ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix until a smooth dough.
Add in butter, continue to knead till smooth and elastic.  Let it proof till double in size.
Mix the filling ingredients smooth. Set aside.
Roll the dough into a rectangular shape 8”x12”. Slice into four equal portions.
Using a silicone brush, brush the filling on top of a dough and stack another dough on top, brush the filling on the dough and repeat till all stack up.
Cut the dough with filling into 8 equal portions.
Arrange the dough into a greased chiffon tube pan, keep it in warm place to rise till double.
Egg wash and sprinkle almond flakes or your choice of dried fruits. (I did not do the egg wash as I apply the balance of the filling on top of the bread.)
Bake at a pre-heated oven at 170C for 25mins at middle rack (with fan forced).
Remove bread from the chiffon pan once cooled, sprinkle with icing sugar.
