Braided sweet bread – long fermentation

Braided sweet bread called ‘Striezel’ in Austria is usually on a Sunday’s breakfast table or any other shape but it’s got to be a sweet yeasted bread like brioche.

This recipe is the healthier version – little yeast and long fermentation over night in the fridge. Healthier because all grain consists of plant defense substances that is hard to digest for our gut but if there is a long fermentation those are getting broken down completely. Partly the reason why we are less bloated.
