Zopf is a type of Swiss, Austrian and German bread made from white flour, milk, eggs and yeast. We brush our zopf with egg before baking, lending it its golden crust. It is baked in the form of a plait and traditionally eaten on Sunday mornings since bakeries used to be closed on Sundays and thanks to the butter in Zopf, this bread would taste just as fresh when bought the day before. The German and French names are derived from the shape of the bread, meaning "braid". Swiss Zopf differs from other braid-shaped breads such as Challah or Hefekranz by way of being unsweetened.
