Serve this traditional Czech Christmas bread with butter. Some people toast it and eat it with jam or icing sugar depending upon local customs and family preference. It takes a while to make, but is well worth the effort.

I haven't made this version yet because I use my own family's recipe, but this is truly a great bread. The braided shape is quite pretty and I've always gotten compliments when I've shared loaves with others. I wouldn't reduce the size of the recipe either. It takes a good amount of time, you'll be happy to have made two loaves. - 14 Jul 2008
This is delicious! My husband, who does not care for cakes without cream, ate half of it. This cake would be one of my regular festive (and non-festive as well) cakes. - 14 Jul 2008
