Description

More like a sweet bread than a typical soft-crumb cake, this Italian-style treat is made from a yeast dough that’s rolled out, sprinkled with chocolate chips and candied orange peel, and then rolled up into a log, which is then halved and woven into a braid. After baking it’s drizzled with a simple powdered-sugar icing and decorated with colored sprinkles (if desired). Serve it at brunch or as a sweet to go with coffee or tea.
