I was beginning to think my poor little host kitchen was not going to tempt any Bread Baking Buddies to try the Viennese Striesel…..
I was, hopefully for the last time this year, wrong.
First in was Zoë, of Rum and Reason Like many of us, she googled '4-strand' braiding or plaiting. See what we learn from baking?
Next to give it a try was Karin of Karin's Kitchen. Her braids were lovely, but I really liked her festive substitutions…. Check it out.
Google, bless their efficient little hearts, told me about this one. Apparently he just wanted to sneak one by, but I found him….. Andreas, of Delta Kitchen made this lovely loaf.
Correction: He didn't really try to sneak by…. Google, who told me about him, apparently was trying to make up for the fact that it was their spam filter that waylaid his email in the first place. He still made a lovely loaf ;-))
This morning I found an email from Soepkipje
You're going to have to go visit to look at her lovely bread… I have to admit to being too frazzled to figure out how to get her beautiful photos over…. Sorry.
The last email so sneak in under the faux deadline is Aparna, of My Diverse Kitchen
She made a very pretty loaf, although she said she struggle with the braid – looks perfect to me.
That's it for the Buddies this month.
Oh wait… There's one more – from Vienna! (I love Vienna)
From Paulchen's Food Blog we get this beautiful loaf…
That makes SIX Buddies this month….. Well Done!
Thank you all for baking with us….
And if I've missed anyone, oodles of apologies, let me know and I'll fix it immediately…..
As soon as I get back from my French Conversation Christmas party….
I think I'm supposed to bring something….. Ooops!
