Braided Bread

Bread braided with a buttery chocolate filling. Soft, airy bread with a charming shape and joyful chocolatey flavor to impress after the first bite.

As I lately have some time, I was searching on the web a few days ago. Trying to get new, exciting tips, inspiring meals that We have never tried before, to impress my family with. Searching for quite some time yet could not find too many interesting things. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this tempting and simple treat by chance. It looked so scrumptious on its photos, that required fast action.

It had been easy to imagine how it is made, its taste and just how much my hubby will probably want it. Mind you, it is extremely simple to please the man when it comes to puddings. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I visited the page: Suncakemom and followed the detailed instuctions that have been coupled with wonderful pictures of the process. It really makes life much easier. I can imagine that it’s a bit of a hassle to shoot photographs down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you normally have gross hands and so i seriously appreciate the time and effort she placed in for making this post and recipe easily implemented.

With that said I am empowered to present my own, personal recipes in a similar fashion. Appreciate your the concept.

I was tweaking the main recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must mention it absolutely was a terrific success. They loved the flavor, the thickness and loved having a delicacy like this in the middle of a hectic week. They quite simply asked for lots more, many more. Thus next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I’m likely to double the amount .

The origanal Braided Bread Recipe is from SunCakeMom


Dissolve fresh yeast in lukewarm milk.

In a medium size mixing bowl add flour, butter, vanilla extract, honey and the eggs.

Pour yeasty milk on top of the flour mixture.

Knead it until it’s even and the dough is off the side of the mixing bowl.

Cover the bowl and leave it in a warm place for an hour to raise.

After an hour take the dough out of the bowl onto a floured surface.

Divide it into 6 equal pieces.

Make dough balls out of them.

Find a warm place aside to place them not too close to each other, and cover them with a kitchen towel for another half an hour to raise more.


Put dice butter and put it in a mixing bowl with the cocoa powder and the honey.

Whisk them together until butter gets a creamy, easy to spread texture.


Then start working with the first dough-ball. Place it on a well-floured surface and strew it in the size of the baking tray with a help of a rolling pin.

Spread 1/6 of the chocolate cream evenly on top.

Roll the dough into a log.

Repeat the same process with the other dough-balls as well.

Braid three logs together and place the braided bread on one side of the tray.

Repeat it with the other three logs as well.

When both bread is in the tray cover them with a kitchen towel and leave it in a warm place for another 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C.

Break an egg and mix it with a drop of honey and vanilla extract.

Brush egg on top of the bread before putting it into the preheated oven.

Leave it in the oven for half an hour or until the top is golden brown.
