This Russian Braided Bread is just a gorgeous yeast bread filled up with savory pesto. Braiding produces a show-stopping loaf that appears impressive it is fairly simple to build!

Braided bread meals are available all kinds of tastes and colors. They’re usually Eastern European, you could find meals with flavors from all over the world. Although some loaves are directly and long, like Challah, other people, similar to this recipe, are rolled in to a circle that is neat.

I filled this loaf that is braided classic basil pesto. When braided to the flakey levels of dough, pesto offers a stunning color and delicious cheesy and herby flavor to our Russian Braided Bread.

I received lots of positive feedback from all of you since I originally posted this braided pesto bread recipe! I’ve updated the post and recipe to resolve your many questions that are common.
