DB Danish Redux


I made my second danish braid today and it DID come out better than the first. I wasn't so anxious this time I guess. I took the dough from the freezer last night , and when thawed I formed my braid and filled it with this cream cheese filling -
12 oz cream cheese
1/3 cups sugar
1 egg
plus a little raspberry jelly down the middle. I let it rise in the fridge overnight and baked this morning. Much better the second time around!

Lovely, i´m thinking about joining the daring bakers and seeing all these lovely breads just makes me want it harder. Maybe when i have more time i´ll do it.

It's really curious why it turned out better the second time. I like the filling you used for sure. I wonder if freezing the dough does something...hmmm....verrrry interesting

Good for you, trying again! Well done.

Thanks, everyone! Giz- I'm pretty sure the second one worked better because I kinda rushed proofing the first one. The 1st one I let rise in a warmed oven (turned off) for 90 min., the 2nd I let rise overnight in the fridge.
