This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is Finnish Pulla, which is located on page 106 in Baking With Julia. This recipe is being host by Erin of The Daily Morsel.

I made this recipe this past weekend and took it over to dinner at my in-laws. We actually had WAY too much good food at dinner and no one had room for the Pulla. I left them half of the loaf because there was no way that the two of us could finish an entire loaf.

The recipe for the bread actually came together pretty easy. I decided to make a braided loaf instead of wreath because I knew I could make it look pretty as a loaf and I wasn’t so sure about making a wreath look pretty. For the pearl sugar and almond topping, I ended up using decorating sugar and slivered almonds. Granted, I actually did have pearl sugar just not enough for the loaf and cookies that Mike wanted me to make.

The loaf turned out very pretty and expanded A LOT in the oven. I was impressed by how big it became. I enjoyed this loaf the next morning toasted with butter and tea. The recipe compares this bread to a brioche or challah bread which is scented with cardamon.
