Azuca CBD King Cake

Azuca Sugar


King Cake Recipe

Source: Taste of Home

Makes 12 servings, 25 mg Azuca CBD each


For the Cake: 

2 Tbsp Azuca CBD sugar 

2 packets active dry yeast (½ oz total) 

½ cup warm water 

½ cup + 2 tbsp sugar, divided 

½ cup butter, softened 

½ cup warm milk 

2 large egg yolks, room temperature 

1¼ tsp salt 

1 tsp lemon zest 

½ tsp ground or grated nutmeg 

3½ cups all-purpose flour 

1 tsp cinnamon 

1 large egg, beaten 

For the frosting: 

1½ cup powdered sugar 

2 tsp lemon juice 

2-3 tbsp water 

Green, purple, and yellow decorating sugars 


  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or a large bowl with egg beaters), combine yeast and warm water. Whisk with a fork briefly until the yeast dissolves.
  2. Pour in Azuca CBD sugar and ½ cup granulated sugar, milk, egg yolks, lemon zest, nutmeg, salt, and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth, then gently stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft, sticky dough.
  3. Turn out your dough onto a floured work surface and knead until smooth and stretchy–about 7 minutes.
  4. Grease a medium bowl and place the kneaded dough inside. Turn the dough over once to lightly coat in oil. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size (a slightly preheated, then turned off oven works).  
  5. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining granulated sugar.  
  6. Once doubled, punch down the dough. Then, on your floured surface, roll the dough into a 16” x 10” rectangle. Sprinkle with prepared cinnamon-sugar mixture.  
  7. Starting with the long side, roll the dough up like a scroll. Gently pinch the seam and place on a greased baking sheet, seam side down. Pinch the ends together to form a ring. Cover with a clean dish towel and let rise again until doubled. Brush with beaten egg. 
  8. Bake until golden brown (25-30 minutes) in 375°F oven. Allow it to cool completely. 
  9. Make the glaze: with a fork, stir together powdered sugar, lemon juice, and just enough water to have a pourable, but not runny consistency. Spread over the cake and then sprinkle colored sugar on top.  
  10. Cut into 12 slices and serve. Make sure to hide a small plastic baby in one slice for good luck!
