Braided sweet bread with heavenly delicious filling for a perfect breakfast.
This bread is super moist, fluffy and has amazing filling. We usually enjoy it while it’s still a bit warm with a cup of coffee or cocoa.
The filling is made with tofu and tarragon, which gives the bread refreshing touch. If you are not a tarragon lover, or you can’t get your hands on it, you can just skip it and it will still taste amazing! It would also taste great if you substitute it with raisins or dried cranberries (soaked in rum or juice).
If you’re intimidated by braiding the bread, don’t be! It’s really easy and less complicated than it looks. Down below you’ll find a video tuturial showing how to braid it. This recipe is for two breads, because one won’t be enough once you taste it! It’s refreshing, super tasty, moist and really fluffy. All this in just one bread, sounds so good, right?! And it also looks really beautiful. We’re sure you’ll impress everyone with this bread.
We love making different kinds of yeast dough recipes. They are great for desserts, breakfast or even dinner (you can also make savoury ones). The dough is so easy and quick to prepare and it comes out perfect every time. I’m sure it will become your new favourite. If you have a sweet tooth like we do, you should definitely check out our other yeast dough recipes. The dough recipe is the same as this one, but the fillings and shapes are different.
- Walnut roll-potica: it’s traditional Slovenian dessert, that we bake for Easter.
- Cinnamon rolls: you can’t get wrong with some of these, right?!
- Carob rolls: these are our all time favourite.
Braided sweet bread with jam
However, instead of tofu and tarragon filling, you can coat the dough with jam and wrap it according to the same procedure. We coated the dough with apricot and strawberry jam, but you can also use other flavors (plum, blueberry, cherry …) or coat it with a vegan chocolate spread.
Watch the video to see just how fluffy the bread is and how to braid it!
