This recipe makes 4 loaves...they aren't really braids, not sure why I didn't change that title. They are rolled up jelly roll style and "scored" with a knife. They freeze so well, that there is no reason to not freeze them.
Above you will see how lumpy the dough is, you don't have to kneed it like most bread recipes, you just mix it up then plop in a bowl overnight. Below is the dough rolled out getting its filling spread on top.
Here they are as they are rising...
And here is a picture to show how I like to cut them for serving...just a one inch slice is perfect for serving. One loaf serves about 8- 10 if you do skinny slices. --Enjoy ..Carissa
Our Cookbook Blog
Our Cookbook ~ What We Cook, is a compilation of every recipe we (Janice and Carissa) cook - recipes from our cookbook collections, our recipe boxes, and our heads! We set up this blog for friends and family who have our cookbook to let them see pictures we post of the recipes in the book, and also for us to note any corrections, revisions, or additions to What We Cook. We encourage people who are cooking our recipes to let us know how the recipes turn out and any suggestions they might want to make.
In addition, we will be sharing some of our new recipes (along with pictures) that are not in our cookbook. We hope you will help us out and test recipes and give us your comments.
