When on April, 16th Elle of "Feeding my Enthusiasm" revealed the Bread Baking Babes recipe, I was super-mega-happy about her choice as we all love sweet filled bread.
Although the filling is not very "Romanian" its taste is absolutely delicious.
I let it proof for 50 minutes instead of the 30 stated in the recipe as I hoped the braid would not have a huge oven spring. But alas, it had and it tore in the middle (or I could say that I've done it on purpose, so that friends do believe I've been baking it and not buying it at the bakery...LOL).
Furthermore I've substitute the wheat flour with organic spelt flour (Germany nr. 630) and the sugar with homemade sugar & vanilla.
Dear friends, hope you'll bake along: it's easy and delicious!
