Merry Christmas everyone!

This pulla raised with both sweet and YW levains is a Christmas present for my friends who are having this 'orphan' for dinner tonight.

 I used Ibor's 3 strand octopus braid for the first time after watching his very skilled hands work several times on the excellent videos her has posted here:

Well this braiding produced a much different loaf of pulla than I have ever baked and should make a fine Christmas gift!

Well it is time to go for dinner, so the crumb shot will have to wait.

Merry Christmas everyone!  Brian
