French bread Braids....

I made a braid (following pictures from the Bistro Chicken Twist recipe on pg 55 of ALL the Best) but filled it with Spinach & Artichoke from the wreath/ring section on pg 81. Even though the top was nicely browned, the dough at the center still partially uncooked. I had to put it back in a few times ~ when it was finally done it was quite yummy.

Does anyone have any tips for how to know when it is done in the center?

This was soooooo much easier to make than I had thought ~ I waited until the show to try it (note to self: try at home first). :) But everyone, including myself, was impressed!

Hi
Yes you need to keep the bread in till it gets really Brown. I make the peperoni pizza twist alot at partys and some time I did have to cut it the put it back in for a few mins. but If the bread is really brown you shoud be ok.

hi susan
I'm glad that you tried it again cause I make any of these breads and yes they really are a show stopper . You can make it as a dessert on too , with cinn ,nuts rasions or cranberrys and and even cut up an apple when its done :eek: make a powered sugar mix with milk and lemon juice , drip on top the put colorful gimmies on tp that looks great too
have fun with them all of the breads then you can tell people that they can really put in them what ever they like and it looks great to have at a party.

I like the french bread for the stuffed bread recieps and also if you have the dough that come frozen ( they come in a log frozen in the a bag of 4or 5 ) they need to be very soft ) but for partys I use the french breads I only use the cresent rolls for any of the rings and I like to do those too.
