Braided Bread Recipe

Braided Bread Recipe

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 recently have some time, I had been searching on the internet last week. Trying to get new, challenging ideas, inspirational meals that We have never tried before, to treat my loved ones with. Looking for a long time unfortunately could not discover lots of interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I came across this yummy and easy dessert by luck on Suncakemom. It seemed so fabulous on its image, it called for rapid actions.

It was simple enough to imagine the way it is made, how it tastes and just how much my husband might want it. Actually, it is rather easy to impress the guy in terms of puddings. Anyway, I visited the webpage and then used the detailed instuctions that had been coupled with great snap shots of the process. It just makes life quite easy. I can suppose it is a slight hassle to take pics down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you ordinarily have gross hands therefore i pretty appreciate the time and effort she devote for making this post .

With that said I’m inspired presenting my very own recipes in a similar fashion. Thanks for the idea.

I was fine tuning the initial mixture to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to tell you it turned out a great success. They loved the flavour, the thickness and loved getting a treat such as this in the middle of a lively week. They ultimately demanded lots more, many more. So the next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m likely to double the quantity .

The origanal Braided Egg Bread 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.
