Today I want to share something super swiss with you: Zopf. A bread that is a must-have for every Sunday morning breakfast. It’s not the healthiest kind of bread, to be honest. But therefore it is even more delicious. And it’s so cool to gather some kids around you and bake the bread together since it’s super easy to do.<3

  • 500g Zopf flour or white flour
  • 1/2 TBSP Salt
  • 1/2 Cube of Yeast
  • 70g Butter
  • 3dl Milk (room temperature)
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 TBSP Milk

Mix everything except for the egg yolk and the one Tablespoon of milk into a dough. Knead the dough for 10min. Put the tough in a bowl and hang a humind towel over it, soaked in hot water. Let the dought rise to its doupple size for about 1 hour and 30min. Form two strings in the same size and shape (about 70cm long). Braid the dough. Start braiding it on a baking paper on the baking sheet. There are many different ways to braid it. That’s the usual way to do it. Mix the egg yolk and one tablespoon of milk together and spread it on the Zopf. Let it rise again for about 30min. Spread it again with the eggmilk. Bake it for 35min at 200 degrees Celcius. If you are not sure if it’s ready you can knock against the ground of the Zopf. If it sounds hollow the Zopf is finished. Take it out and let it cool down. Actually it’s super delicous to eat it while it’s still warm. And everything tastes good on it: Nutella, honey, butter, jam, salamon and bacon. And my favorite: Butter with some herb salt and a lot of chives.<3 Enjoy!!!<3
