Saffron Star Bread

Here’s a bright shining star to get us all through the darkest week of the year.

I saw an incredibly beautiful star bread that @barbarafrenchvegan made, and I just had to make one too. I made the same saffron yeast dough as for my saffron wreath a few posts back. It’s by far the best I’ve tried, with silken tofu from I filled it with vegan butter, sugar, almond paste and crushed almonds. Below you can see step by step how to make the star. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Step by Step

Step 1

Use the yeast dough.

8-9 dl flour makes one Star Bread.

Step 2

Divide the dough into 4 pieces.

Roll one of the pieces out into a circle.

Cover the circle with the filling.

Step 3

Repeat this until you have 4 layers of dough with filling in between them.

Step 4

Place a cup in the middle of your dough.

Use a sharp knife to cut your dough into 16 wedges.

Step 5

Take 2 of the wedges and twist them twice in opposite directions of eachother and combine the remaining parts at the ends.

Step 6

Repeat Step 5 until you’ve made a star and connected all the ends.

Bake at 225 C for 15 minutes.

Brush with dissolved sugar.

Step 7

Enjoy your Star Bread with a nice cup of tea.
