For the filling:


  • Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk, add to the rest of the bread ingredients in a large bowl, and knead for a few minutes.
  • You will end up with quite a firm dough. Cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes.
  • Roll the dough out in a large rectangle on a floured board.
  • Rub the softened butter onto the dough. Sprinkle the filling mixture on top, leaving a border around the edges.
  • Roll the dough up into a roll, starting on one of the short sides.
  • Get a sharp knife and cut lengthways along the roll, to make two pieces.
  • Carefully twist the two pieces around each other, keeping the cut sides upwards, as this creates the nice braid effect.
  • Let the braided dough rise for another 45 mins.
  • Bake at 180 degrees for about 25 mins, or until lightly brown.
