From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser. I found
this recipe in a 2001 Taste of Home magazine. I
adapted it for the bread machine. This is a
wonderful soft bread to serve with soup, salad, or
pasta. I have used slices of this to make garlic
In bread machine:
1 1/4 c water, warmed
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp honey
1 egg YOLK (save egg white for brushing on loaf)
4 1/2 c bread flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 Tbsp salt
2 1/4 tsp yeast
Put on dough setting, minus 10 minutes.
Braid/ shape on floured baking stone.
Raise* 20 minutes.
Whisk reserved egg white with 1 tsp cold water
Brush over loaf/ loaves.
OPTIONAL: sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds
Bake @ 375, 20 minutes OR until lightly browned.
*How I raise bread*
Place oven proof dish of water in bottom of oven. Set oven on lowest
temp. and place bread in oven to raise.
Bake with water dish in oven.
