Warm Bread and Honey Cake – Home Baking From Around The World by Gaitri-Pagrach Chandra, a food historian who is a Guyanese Hindu of Indian ancestry. Educated in North America and Europe and married into a European Jewish family, her book abounds with anecdotes and recipes from several parts of the world. If you are a home baker looking for something different and like to bake authentic recipes from other countries, this book is for you. I baked a couple of other breads and cakes, and hopefully will post them some time soon.
I followed the recipe and made no changes. The recipe can be accessed here.
I baked this bread for Christmas and it was a huge success....there were no leftover crumbs! Everyone loved the aniseeds that imparted a characteristic flavor to the braid. Here is my braid yeasting away....
I hope you bake this beautiful bread. I am sending it off to Yeastspotting @ Wild Yeast.
