More Cooking From The Bread Bible - Raspberry-Cream Cheese Braid


Inspiration struck and I decided to try another recipe from Beth Hensperger's The Bread Bible.  Having not been disappointed as of yet, I decided to get gutsy and go with a dessert bread.  What I hadn't realized prior to starting {because I was so inspired I forgot to read through the recipe first} is that the dough must be refrigerated overnight prior to shaping and baking.  So, although I started it on Sunday, I actually baked it Monday night.  At 10p.m.  The house smelled good, but we didn't test it until the next day.


This recipe is very hearty and good.  I changed it from the original just a bit.  Beth has you add a fresh raspberry blend to the bread with a streusel on top.  I had leftover raspberry jam that I chose to use.........
