Grandma's Swiss New Year's Bread (Zuepfe)
Using a large stand mixer saves on stirring. This recipe makes one braid (zuepfe) and four doves or three braids.
My Grandma made four strand braids. Check out YouTube for demonstrations on how to braid four strand challah. If you'd like smaller loaves, make strands into knots to form "doves."
Grandma would use scissors to snip feathers and put in whole cloves for eyes.
