Today I’m posting the recipe with step-by-step pictures to make a Braided Star Bread. You know I love homemade bread, and when I get this great resualts, both tastefully and visually speaking, I have double satisfaction!

Preparation Time: 30 min
Baking Time: 20 min
Total Time: 50 min + 2 h and 30 minutes for rising
Dissolve baker’s yeast in milk, then add sugar and tepid melted butter.
Mound flour in a bowl, make a well in the middle and pour yeast mixture inside.
Let’s start to knead, then add salt.
Knead to combine the ingredients.
Once you get a soft and even dough, cover the bowl with some plastic wrap.
Let rise for about 2 hours in the oven (turned off!)
Take back the dough and divide it into 11 equal small balls, of about 70 g each.
Out of 10 of them, make cords of about 50 cm.
Overlap the cords, horseshoe shaped, within each other: you’ll get a sort of sun with its rays.
Gather it 4 by 4 so that you can braid them to make 5 4-end braids.
Place the extra dough in the middle, and cross-cut it.
Let rise for 30 more minutes, then brush with a little milk and bake for about 20 minutes in oven preheated ate 180°C.
Let cool till tepid and serve your Braided Star Bread.
