Here is an easy, delicious, attractive make ahead breakfast bread. You assemble and refrigerate it the day before. Bake it while you do something else like during your morning shower:) The hardest thing is finding refrigerator space to store it overnight. It is a very popular staff treat.
- 1⁄2 cup warm water
- 1 (1/4 ounce) package yeast
- 2 1⁄2 cups biscuit mix
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup raspberry jelly
- In a small mixing bowl dissolve yeast in the warm water.
- Stir in biscuit mix. Add beaten egg and sugar. Mix well.
- Turn onto floured surface. Knead. Place dough on the center of greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Roll to 14x9-inch rectangle.
- In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice. Spread this mixture down the center third of rectangle.
- Make 3" long cuts at 1" intervals on both sides of bread dough. To make braided effect, fold sides at an angle over the cream cheese filling.
- Cover. Chill in refrigerator overnight.
- Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
- Spoon 1/4 cup of raspberry jelly down the center of the loaf. Bake 5 minutes longer.
Very good and very unique but felt it could use more jam either incorporated or as just added on the side. A nice brunch item.
This is very simple to make although I forgot to cover it when I placed it in the fridge which may account for it not rising, but it's delicious none-the-less. Made exactly as directed. A scrumptious brunch item. Thanks for posting. :)
