similar recipe on lauren's website, it has raisins and is a six strand braided loaf while the loaf we prepared omits the raisins and is a three strand braided loaf.
the bakers manual, has diagrams for making braids with 3,4,5 and 6 strands and i want to try them all!
this one on the baking bites website. the post also has 4 and 5 strand photo tutorials. my best advice to you if you want to try this, lay your strands on the baking sheet close together. start in the middle and work the braid from the side to the ends, tuck them under and then turn the pan around to the other side to complete the braid. it is easier than trying to move the half finished braid.
