Serve this traditional Czech Christmas bread with butter. Some people toast it, eat it with jam or icing sugar, depending upon local customs and family preference. It takes a while to make, but is well worth the effort.

I haven't made this version yet because I use my own family's recipe, but this is truly a great bread. The braided shape is quite pretty and I've always gotten compliments when I've shared loaves with others. I wouldn't reduce the size of the recipe either. It takes a good amount of time, you'll be happy to have made two loaves. - 29 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
it took a long time to make this bread. No joke when they say an all day affair, but it was worth EVERY minute. Not only was it amazingly delicious, it was beautiful! Of course I adjusted the spices to suit my family's tastes, but other than that...PERFECT!!! - 21 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
