  1. Combine warm water and yeast in a large bowl; stir to dissolve. Add warm milk, egg, marmalade, and butter. Stir to combine.
  2. Mix flour, oats, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add to yeast mixture and stir until moistened. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat both sides. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine cranberries, brown sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until cranberries begin to soften, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in walnuts, butter, and lemon juice. Let cool.
  4. Punch dough down. Roll dough into a 10x20-inch rectangle on a floured surface.
  5. Whisk egg white and water together. Brush lightly over the dough. Spread cranberry filling over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Roll up tightly, starting from a long edge. Seal edges and cut off any tapered sides with no filling.
  6. Transfer roll to a large square baking sheet. Join ends together to form a ring. Use sharp kitchen shears to make cuts at 1-inch intervals, cutting 2/3 of the way through the dough. Twist each slice gently to expose the swirled filling. Gently shape dough into a perfect ring. Cover and let rise until doubled, 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 20 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Let cool completely.
  9. Stir powdered sugar and orange juice concentrate together in a small bowl. Add enough water to reach a glaze-like consistency. Drizzle glaze over tea ring. Allow glaze to set before slicing.

Delicious, followed the recipe except did add a little orange marmalade to the cranberry mixture as well. Took a little longer to bake than called for.

No changes, and yes, will make again!

Excellent recipe!! I had to cook it about 15 minutes longer than what was stated but it was no bother. Very fresh taste with the whole cranberries and a lot easier to make than what the directio...

Added some orange marmalade to the dough. It was wonderful

I followed the recipe and am definitely going to be keeping this one, might have to try it with peaches next time. Yummy
