Pumpkin Cheese Braid

Absolutely the best breakfast bread I've made in a long time! You must make a batch for the holidays. Your family will thank me! Really! (This cheese braid is so delicious you will want to frame it and hang it in your yummy gallery!)
I have been promising to get this recipe written out & published for some peeps.  Those of you who were not fortunate enough to receive a loaf of this (ok - I was stingy & only shared with two other households. . .) must be wondering if it can possibly be as good as the hype. It is. I have three families to serve as references! (Unfortunately, the evidence disappears within a day or two. . .)
(just click to enlarge to a readable size)
Here are some pics I took along the process:
yes -- that IS a #10 of pumpkin...

pudding's all mixed up!

all baked!

seriously need to work on my "glaze artistry"

oooooooh -- glazed while too warm

simply dusted with powdered sugar

hmmmmm -- enjoy with a cup of coffee!


  1. Okay, NOW I'm hungry!! It looks delicious. I will have to give it a try! I'm a sucker for good bread. By the way, today the doctor told Richard to take Mucinex DM too. Good call.

  2. That looks beautiful.

    I am taking over the Improv Challenge since Sheryl left blogging so suddenly. If you would like to continue with us (I am assuming that this braid was going to be your entry for November, so you can join again in December), please send me an email: frugalantics(at)yahoo(dot)com. I will be sending out more information at the end of this week. Hope to hear from you.
