Easy Twisted Strawberry Red Bean Bread

Easy Twisted Strawberry Red Bean Bread
This Twisted Strawberry Red Bean Bread is a twist on classic Jewish Babka. It’s a shortcut recipe with premade Pillsbury crescent dough.

This recipe for Easy Twisted Strawberry Red Bean Bread is inspired by traditional Jewish babka, but with an Asian twist. If you liked my Red Bean and Strawberry Pinwheel Cookies, you’ll love this bread.There’s really nothing like fresh, homemade bread. If you haven’t had homemade bread, you’re missing out. The only problem is that making bread takes time and sometimes I don’t have time to make bread from scratch. Back in the day, that would have been a crying shame. Thankfully, we’ve got pre-made dough in our lives.

The red bean and strawberry filling is folded perfectly into every square inch of the bread, making it perfectly delicious and drop dead gorgeous. My favorite part about making this bread is brushing the syrup over the bread and sprinkling sesame seeds over the top. Those last two finishing steps are like the icing on a cake. I mean, just look at  how gorgeous this bread is! The Fiance loves bread so we’re both thrilled about this shortcut recipe. Between the gorgeous swirls and The Fiance’s stamp of approval, how can you say no to a slice of this Twisted Strawberry Red Bean Bread? You can’t–that was a trick question.

Ingredients

    Bread
  • 2 8oz. cans Pillsbury Crescent Dough Roll
  • Strawberry Red Bean Filling
  • 3/4 cup Strawberry Jam
  • 1/3 cup Red Bean Paste
  • Syrup and Topping
  • 3 tablespoons Water
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Sesame Seeds

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven 375 F.
  2. Line a 4x8 loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the strawberry jam and red bean paste with a fork until fully combined. Set aside.
  4. Open up and roll out each roll of dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough so it's about 6x12.
  5. Split the filling in half for each roll of dough. Spread the filling evenly over the dough leaving a 1/4" of space around the edges.
  6. Roll each sheet of dough long side up and pinch the edges to seal in the filling.
  7. Use a sharp knife and slice lengthwise into each roll of dough about 3/4 of the way through.
  8. Twist each roll around each other in a braiding motion and pinch the ends to seal the dough pieces together.
  9. Place the braided dough into the parchment lined loaf pan and bake in the middle of the oven for 40-45 minutes.
  10. While the bread is baking, mix the water and sugar to create a syrup. Set aside.
  11. Spread the syrup over the top of the bread with a pastry brush and sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top.
  12. Cool the bread in the pan for 1 hour until room temperature and then pull out of the pan to serve.

In other news, I got a Sunday 1-day pass for Lollapalooza! Am I going to see you there? Are you excited? I am. Oh Wonder is just one of many bands and artists that I’m dying to see. I’m kind of hoping they’ll cover Beyonce’s Crazy In Love during their set.
