This 4-strang braided milk bread made with fresh yeast is the ideal breakfast for Sunday but you will find it in most households over the Easter period called Osterstriezel = Easterstriezel – well there is no translation for Striezel which sort of entered into the English language by now.
You can either mix the dough late evening and put it overnight in the fridge for cold prove or if you are an early riser than in the morning hours before everyone else gets up. It should only take you under two hours from start to finish.
You can make two large braided loaves or three smaller ones and suggest to put them in the freezer for that quick Sunday breakfast or when guest arriving for afternoon tea. If you are not a super braider there is always to option to put them in a tin.
