Type of bread for braiding?
I've been seeing ibor's braids and think they are wonderful. However I think the recipe for Blueberry Cream Cheese braid on here looks yummy too. What type of bread is best for both of those? I was thinking braiding would be a challah and the blueberry cream cheese one might be a pastry dough?
I have been flicking though a No-Knead book and have started the challah tonight for tomorrow. Is there such a thing as a filled challah or would I need a different dough for that?
Also, could I just use the dough for the Blueberry Cream Cheese Braid on here to make a regular braided dough? Rolling it into logs to braid instead of a rectangle? I asked a few questions on that recipe here on TFL so I won't post those here.
One last question. I've gotten a request from a friend to try to make Mallorca bread. I've seen a few recipes, does someone have a link to one they like best?
