Stuffed Braided Bread for Blog Hop Wednesday

Stuffed Braided Bread for Blog Hop Wednesday

Spinach-Mozzarella stuffing

This week has been a scramble – Loved the blogging marathon I did for the past two weeks, esp because of the themes I’d chosen – Cooking with fruits; salad & soups the second week. But after posting just a recipe or 2 for weeks now, it was a challenge to get my butt in gear to blog everyday – I am SO hard pressed for time that I feel guilty that I am not blog hopping to see the wonderful things my colleagues have prepared -I keep thinking, today I will sit and do nothing but blog hop, but with a very active and demanding 3 yr old, i peek into my computer every half hour, FB usually to check comments or share a post! I am loving every minute of hanging out with my little girl and would regret seeing her all grown up soon enough and not having spent the quality time I spent with my older two children – So please excuse me if I am not coming around to your blogs as often as I used to – This weeks agenda – cupcakes & cookies for my daughter’s drama club, Mad Hatter’s Tea Party – taking my toddler to it, but have to work hard for it :) this evening is a concert for the same daughter – she is the busy one! My son pursues activities too but not everyday like my daughter does! So for the most part, it is my toddler and me in the house and she tells me every once in a while – Ma, shut off your computer
But today besides playing bingo with my little one, i was also baking from Sangee Vijay’s blog, Spicy Treats for the wonderfully, synchronized and tabulated blog hop wednesday event initiated by Radhika of Tickling Palates. When I first commented on this Stuffed Braided bread on Sangee’s blog, I thought to myself that I should make it – and this seemed the perfect opportunity to do it –

I followed her recipe to the last detail and it turned out beautifully- Thank you Sangee – you have a wonderful blog and many wonderful recipes :)

FIngredients 
1.5 cups All Purpose flour  1 cup whole wheat flour1/2tsp Instant   yeast   2tbsp Olive Oil    1/2 tsp Salt  1/2 Warm Milk  +1tbsp for basting before baking1/2 cup +1-2 tbsp of water

Here are the few things that I need to note down for those making this
1. I made a spinach & Mozzarella Stuffing
2. I used 3/4 cup of water along with the half cup of warm milk for the proportions called for (this is a measurement that Sangee has omitted -I do often not mention things I think are understood by all
3. In my Oven, it took me about 25-27 minutes at 375 degrees –

Stuffing -Used frozen chopped spinach, cooked with some red chillies – added pine nuts and chopped up fresh mozzarella cubes. See pictures
