A Unique and Delicious Braided Bread


Prep Time:2 hours
Cook Time:2 hours
Servings: 1 Loaf


    1 teaspoon Sue Bee Honey
    1 (1/4 ounce) package active dry yeast
    1 cup lukewarm milk
    4 tablespoons butter
    3 cups flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 egg
    1 egg yolk
    1 teaspoon milk


    1. Combine the yeast, honey, milk, and butter, stir, and leave for 15 mintues to dissolve.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture and egg. With a wooden spoon, stir from the center, incorporating flour with each turn, to obtain a rough dough.
    3. Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a clean bowl, cover, and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.
    4. Grease a baking sheet. Punch down the dough and divide into three equal pieces. Roll to shape each piece into a long thin strip.
    5. Begin braiding from the center strip, tucking in the ends. Cover loosely and leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
    6. Preheat the oven to 375*F. Place the bread in a cool place while oven heaats. Brush with the glaze and bake until golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Set on a rack to cool completely.
