Yeast bakes are always welcome in our family when it comes to breakfast. For as long as I can remember, we’ve had delicious sweet braided loaves for breakfast (not only) at Easter. My mom rarely made them herself though – she preferred getting them from the bakery close by. My brother, on the other hand, liked to get into the kitchen and baking them from time to time. At some point, as a teenager, I also started to work with yeast… and I still like to do it today ;) I think there is nothing better than a freshly baked Spelt Sweet Braided Loaf with a little butter on top. Simply terrific!
Easter is the time for yeast bakes. Easter would be impossible without a Sweet Braided Loaf or a Classic German Easter Bread like this one here. At least in our family. Those bakes are necessary for Easter like Christmas cookies are for Christmas ;) Our Easter breakfast/brunch would not be perfect without it. To make things easier you can prepare the dough in advance and bake the braided loaf or bread the next morning. Preparing the dough does not take long – it needs quite some time to rise… that’s all. Same for all yeast bakes ;P
I love bread. I eat it every day ;) These Turkish Bread Rings are very high on my all-time favorites list of bread. So soft and fluffy! We used to pick them up quite regularly at a Turkish supermarket when we stocked up on dips and olives – another thing I eat almost every day ;P For a long time I had no clue that this type of bread is called “Açma”. I also did not know how easy you can make it at home. Well… whenever we have some time now, these bread rings are baked at home instead of buying them at the supermarket. Really, who does not love fresh homemade bread?! ;)
Can there be anything better than brioche and chocolate combined? I don’t think so. Chocolate Babka is an absolutely brilliant treat. Unfortunately, we do not make it very often. This bake needs a lot of attention and time when preparing it but the time and effort you put in is definitely worth it. A fluffy and chocolaty inside combined with a crisp and crunchy exterior… so good! Not only for Easter ;)
Easter and yeast bakes go together like Christmas and Christmas cookies. None of these holidays would work without its special bakes. Fortunately (for you), I got quite a collection of recipes for these types of bakes. So in case, you need some inspiration for the upcoming Easter holidays I might have something for you. This little “top 10” is just the tip of the iceberg. But also the best of the best. So get some fresh yeast and enough flour for all of these bakes. Are you ready? ;)
Easter is coming up soon. This calls for delicious sweet yeasted bread and braids for today’s “Bake Together”. We Germans love to bake with yeast for Easter so this is the perfect topic for Andrea and me this week. Since I am baking quite often with yeast the decision of what to make at the end was a bit difficult because I’ve baked so much already… but as you can see I found something: a delicious Easter Bread Wreath with Marzipan Filling. Sounds good? ;)
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
