Love the braiding video, especially with the klezmer accompaniment.

Yaaaaas I loved the video too. I weeded out at least ten videos that spent the first two minutes cutting the dough into pieces and lacked this energetic music to get you excited for the challenge :slight_smile:

I baked this bread on the weekend after a yoghurt making disaster. I ended up with soft cheese and a lot of whey. Not one to throw things out, I decided to try this recipe. I am so glad I did. It has amazing flavour. The crumb is soft and the crust is still good after a few days. I didn’t braid it, just baked a boule. But the rise was perfect. I will surely bake this again. Thanks for the recipe, Melissa. :yum:

You’re welcome and I’m glad you had a good experience with the recipe. I hope your soft cheese is tasty : ) I’m relatively new to yogurt making. Do you know what happened to make it cross over from yogurt to cheese?

The cheese makes a wonderful spread in place of butter or margarine. I think it was partly my fault. I checked it after a few hours and found that the mixture was cold and didn’t thicken. I then heated it up again and noticed that it started to curdle. I covered it in a blanket and after a while it was curdled totally and separated. So I drained the whey and made this wonderful cheese. That’s when I remembered this recipe and decided to give it a try. So glad I did. :cheese:

Interesting is it like ricotta? I kinda feel like a cheater with my yogurt making because I use an Instant Pot…well “Ultra Pot” different brand that had a second glass lid and same functionality. Anyhow the only aspect of the process I have to deal with is stirring in a 1/4c of yogurt when the milk has cooled to 110-115F.

Yes, like ricotta. I just didn’t season it, so it’s a sweet cheese. I used to make yogurt with raw milk, then it is a really long process. Now I just heat the milk, add milk powder for a thicker yogurt, cool down and stir in also 1/4 cup yogurt. Works well for me.

Interesting - I may buy milk powder and try that. I don’t love how much strained whey I get
