I got the dough done in my bread maker, then braided it like a challah.
I put it in the oven, and after they came over, I proudly opened the oven and took it out. I do not know what i did wrong, but it came out looking like a huge Milk Bone! It still tasted good, however.
I have CZ blood - would you care to share that recipe?

Does she make kolaches?

I don't braid mine. I just make regular loafs in loaf pans. I will sometimes purchase a loaf from Market Basket and theirs is braided. But I find it hard to slice for French Toast. The braid likes to part when I dip it into the egg mixture. And that is the main purpose I like to make it in a loaf pan. Easier to slice for French Toast.
