Zopf & Öpfel Chüechli

We love Swiss bread.  Especially the dark crusty loaves full of seeds and wholegrains.  The boys love getting a ‘bun’ from Migro and often choose the dark healthy ones over the white.  So great.

I have decided it is time for me to do some bread baking. I am going to try a Zopf today, a white bread, not the healthiest but oh, so good!  I found this Betty Bossi Zopf recipe in English.  I love the translation – check it out – Before baking, sweep with the yellow of an egg. I think they mean, before baking, brush with an egg yolk.

Anyway, I will let you know how it goes.  My previous bread baking efforts haven’t been too successful.

My favourite Swiss food at the moment are Öpfel Chüechli (apple cakes), traditionally served in autumn.  They are to die for.  Mostly they are fried but Betty Bossi sell a tray to bake them in.  Mum, I will have to get one and bring it home!

    How did the Zopf-baking go? Migros sells a special Zopf-Mehl with which it turns out really well…
    I’m into the home-baking mode again too, after being inspired by the Swiss making everything themselves. – Oh yes, that Apfel-Kuechlein tray looks great, definitely a must-have one day!
    Give my little boys a hug from me. Missing you…
