I loved the recipe. I did not make any changes to it. It was light with wonderful flavor especially with the praline filling.
It did take the full 5 hours so plan ahead.
Also it needed to bake about 8 minutes longer to get the golden color.
I pre read the recipe a couple of times so that I could be organized.
I will definitely make this again.
This is my second year using this recipe for King Cake. It's really great! My only comment on the recipe itself is that it DEFINITELY takes a lot longer than 25 minutes to bake... At least for me, it took closer to 45 minutes, checking frequently after the 25 minute mark.
Thank you for sharing this recipe, though. My family and co-workers have really enjoyed this special once-a-year treat.
To reviewer Megan. A yeast bread with a filling is what a King Cake is! It is similar to a cinnamon roll dough. I’ve eaten king cake all over Louisiana.
This is a fool proof recipe I’ve made many times. Great filling and it makes 2. I’ve mixed lemon curd with cream cheese for a filling option and it’s great too.
I was hopeful for this recipe but it turned out to be essentially a loaf of bread with decent filling. I wouldn’t recommend it based on my experience with authentic king cake, this isnt it.
