Braided Egg 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 recently have some time, I had been browsing on the web a few days ago. Looking for fresh, interesting ideas, inspiring dishes that I have never used before, to treat my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time but could not come across any interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this fabulous and simple treat simply by chance. The dessert seemed so delightful on its image, that called for prompt actions.

It had been not difficult to imagine the way it is created, its taste and just how much my hubby might want it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to delight the man when it comes to desserts. Anyway, I went to the blog: Suncakemom and simply used the comprehensive instuctions that were combined with nice graphics of the procedure. It just makes life quite easy. I could imagine that it is a bit of a effort to shoot photos in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may typically have gross hands and so i really appreciate the commitment she devote to make this blogpost and recipe easily followed.

With that said I am inspired to present my own recipes in a similar fashion. Appreciate your the idea.

I had been tweaking the main recipe create it for the taste of my loved ones. Need to tell you it was an awesome success. They enjoyed the flavor, the consistency and enjoyed having a sweet like this during a hectic week. They quite simply asked for lots more, more and more. Hence the next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I’m likely to double the volume .

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.

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.

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

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.
