Named for the braided hair this sweet bread resembles, this recipe is leavened with brewer's yeast. After it's left to rise, it's rolled out and spread with a sugar and butter filling; then, it's braided, baked and garnished with cocoa or powdered sugar. Cinnamon sugar is another common filling. Once you make them, let us know what you liked about the recipe and if there's anything you did differently in the comment thread below.

If you do not have prosciutto on hand, or you don't want to pay the price tag it carries, I found black forest ham tastes just as good. Be sure to salt both sides of the spiral though if you do not use prosciutto so you substitute that salty flavor. I even added a little pepper and brushed on some extra light olive oil to both sides as well.
