A braided yeast bread is a German Easter classic! It is a slightly sweet bread, which tastes best with butter and homemade jam.
After a lot of trial and error I became quite decent at baking bread. This recipe is so great because the dough does not have to rest for hours. So the bread is quickly ready.
The yoghurt makes the bread taste light and fluffy. I added sesame and pumpkin seeds for a nutty flavour. The bread goes very well with cheese. I think this is my favourite homemade bread so far!
As you might have noticed I became crazy about baking recently. I am starting to create own recipes. Just like this savoury raisin bread with almonds. It is massive so I think we have to eat only bread for the next days. But I really like it. Usually raisin breads are of the soft and sweet type so this is a great alternative and it is very good with cheese.
I discovered this new type of cheese called “Gorgonzola al vino”. At the market they stuck a bottle of red wine headfirst into a big gorgonzola cheese for a couple of weeks, changing the position of the bottle every now and then until the cheese has fully absorbed the wine. It tastes fantastic!
I love the rustic look of the bread. It looks like one of those breads that knights would have in a green pouch and then cut it with a sword…
