The Daring Baker’s Take on The Danish Braid….

It’s great to be back with the Daring Baker’s this month. Kelly from Sass and Veracity and Ben from What’s Cooking, were the hosts this month and they chose the beautiful Danish Bread. The recipe is Sherry Yard’s from The Secrets of Baking and what a beauty this was.

I had all the ingredients at home to half the recipe on a random day, so I made one braid and I filled it with a peanut butter and jelly filling, which I always have on hand, then I sprinkled it with coarse sugar and boy was it good! I couldn’t resist a little sweet drizzle over top either. Can’t wait to experiment with the little danish’s next time and try the apple filling.

Here’s a peek at some of my finished product.

Love the jelly peeking through the braid, mmm!

Ah, here’s my favorite way to enjoy the braid, with a little sweet drizzle! It’s just powdered sugar and milk whisked together.

Thanks for a great challenge this month Daring Bakers. Be sure to check out other Danish Breads at The Daring Bakers Blogroll. Have a great day everyone!

    Peanut butter & jelly is a cool idea. I have picky kids, though, who don’t like peanut butter. =) I agree, gotta have the icing!
