Extraordinary Bread – Braided Lemon Bread

This bread tastes amazing!!

I woke up early today to make this bread before leaving for work. When I thought about making this bread, I had read that the recipe made two very large loaves. To avoid having too much bread, I had originally planned to make a half recipe. Unfortunately, I wasn’t thinking clearly at 6am this morning and completely forgot that I was going to cut the recipe in half until I got to adding the flour into the mix. So, I just went ahead and made the full recipe.

With so much dough, and not wanting really large loaves, I split the dough into three portions instead of two. My homemade curd and jams came in handy this morning.

Loaf #1 – 1/2 cup lemon curd

Loaf #2 – 1/2 cup Triple Berry Jam with freeze dried raspberries

Loaf #3: 1/2 cup orange marmalade

I brought the lemon loaf to work today and it disappeared in about three hours. This is a recipe that I will definitely make again!
