Christmas Star Twisted Bread
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + cooling
The video showing how to twist the break was super helpful to me. I used a little bit too much jam, so it was a bit messy, but this is delicious. I'm thinking it would be great to serve at a brunch. The whole family loved this!
so much easier than I thought, Video was a big help on how to twist it. Really turned out great. lovely and actually felt good to make it. Gave it as a gift so hope it tasted ok. thanks, loved it. great recipe. Ok update, the neighbors that got this lovely bread LOVED it, Said it was very tasty and great taste. I used Strawberry Jam, what I had on hand. Really great receips.
So I did a new thing yesterday.... I love to bake bread. And I love to try new recipes. When I saw this Twisted Christmas Star Bread on the front cover of the #TasteofHome magazine, I knew I had to make it! Wish I could share a photo here! I made it with blackberry preserves and it was delicious! Can’t wait to make it for Christmas Day! ????????
Susan, so glad you said you made this with a cinnamon sugar mixture as I was going to ask. I thinkI will try it that way. Thanks, Susan for saying to go easy on filling, will do.
I have made this bread many times and a little dusting of powdered (icing) sugar covers a lot of little mistakes. I have used raspberry jam for the filling as well as butter topped with cinnamon and sugar. Be sure not to go overboard with the filling or it gets a little sloppy to do the twists.
Reading that it's not overly flavorful, I was just thinking about incorporating cream cheese in with the jam. I do this with other bread recipes. So what do you think?
This recipe was so delicious! While it does look a little intimidating, it is pretty simple and the flavor is amazing! Seriously, it was the hit of our Christmas Brunch this year. I will definitely be making it again and testing different jam flavors!
Pretty, but not overly flavorful.
I reviewed this nearly a year ago and wanted to review again. This year I added cinnamon to the dough. Family loved it. Making the star design is fun to do. Seeing the video helped tremendously.
Be sure to read through the directions thoroughly before starting to form the star shape. The end result tastes great and is beautiful!
