“This is an easy yeast coffee braid. Takes a little time as the dough has to chill overnight, but it has great versatility. Makes 3 braids, so you can make all apple or make 3 different flavors easily! After shaping, the dough may be refrigerated for baking another day. Cooking time includes chill and rise time.”
