Tuesdays with Dorie: Danish bread

At the TWD group we made Danish bread. I knew Danish bread, but only in 1 person loaves. This was  a loaf that was made for a dozen of people. We made our dough, which contained multiple layers butter with flour. And our cream. There was also a recipe in the book for the fruit jam. That's the one I didn't make as Dorie prescribed it. As you could see on my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/4pure), I made a lot of jams this fall. And I also made a plum vanilla version. That's what I used in my Danish Bread.

As for the end result. The dough was tasty as was the filling. A nice bread, when it's eaten warm. Cold its also nice, but it's better when it's warm..
And that is a small minor. It was a large bread and so we couldn't eat it warm all the way.
So when I make them again, I make half and one person portions. So we can eat all of them warm.

If you want to know what the other think of it, look at: http://tuesdayswithdorie.wordpress.com/2013/10/14/lyl-danish-braid/

I thought it looked fabulous with the folding and sugar on top:
