Baking Challenge

Eight-Strand Plaited Loaf

Give your bread a name and tell us about your recipe.

Delicious fail. I’ve made braided breads before with four or five strands so I knew eight would be a challenge. I was right. My recipe yielded too much dough for what I had room for and it kept sticking. It tastes great though!

Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?

I had to add a bit more flour since the dough was too sticky but other than that I followed the recipe.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your bread creation.

I used a local honey!

How did you do?

Totally failed … and still laughing.
