A classic, sweet yeast braid with nuts and cinnamon which in the south of Germany is often enjoyed with a cup of coffee for breakfast or in the afternoon. In my family it is also part of any birthday as we like to invite friends and family for Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake) on birthday afternoons. You make a fancy cake, an apple pie, serve some Brezeln and a Schwäbischer Zopf. Something for every taste. And even if there is no afternoon birthday party I still end up making at least one of these on Brian’s birthday for him to take to work - which is another very German thing to do. But truly I make one of these for just about any Sunday and if I don't, I really should. It is one of my all time favorites.
