1 hour before taking the butter and egg out of the fridge and make the poolish.
Mix 50 g of flour, 50 ml of water, and yeast. Cover tightly and let stand for 45 minutes at 1 hour at room temperature. It has to triple in volume and make lots of bubbles.

Remove the zest from the lemon and orange with a thin grater.



Put 250 g of flour, sugar, and butter in a container. Crush with your fingertips to obtain a sandy mixture.
Make a well, add poolish, lemon zest, egg, olive oil, and orange blossom water. Mix and knead for about 10 minutes, until the dough becomes smooth and elastic.
Form a ball. Put it in a container. Cover and let stand for 1 hour to 1 hour and a third at room temperature. The dough should double in size.
Cut the candied bark into very small pieces.
Add them to the dough. Form a ball. Leave to rest for 10 minutes. At this point, you can either continue or put the dough in the fridge one night and resume the next day, letting the dough sit for 30 minutes at room temperature before continuing.
Make a hole in the center of the ball and gently widen it to obtain a crown about 22 cm in diameter. Hide the subject and the bean.
Cover and let stand for 1 hour.
About 15 minutes before the end of the lift, preheat the oven to 180oC, with a small container filled with water, to moisten the oven.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. If she gilds too fast, she covers it with this paper.

Heat the jam in a small saucepan. Brush the bun with a brush. Sprinkle with pearl sugar and garnish with candied citrus pieces or wedges.
