Wonderful recipe! I use the dough cycle on my bread machine to make this super easy. I have a hard time with presentation of my food normally but this makes me looks like I am a pro.
I’ve used this recipe a lot before and it’s always turned out gorgeous and delicious!
My first successful homemade bread! I love how easy it is to make, and it tastes so good. I use my kitchenaid mixer to knead the dough (8 mins on medium speed, per another user suggestion). To save time, I usually prepare the dough the night before the day I intend to bake it, and I let the dough do its first rise in the refrigerator overnight. Then when I'm ready to bake, I braid the dough per instructions, and allow it to rise for the second time. It usually takes about 45-50 minutes to double in size on the second rise, on account of the dough being cold. Then I brush with the egg wash and bake oer recipie instructions. Comes out perfectly every time, and I've made it 4 times already. Fantastic recipe.

Looks great! But is rather tasteless. I will add more salt and possibly sugar next time.
Very easy and tastes great. I think it turned out well for my first try.
This recipe is so easy and came out great. I let my Kitchen Aid mixer do the kneading (8 min. on medium speed). Everything was spot on except for the fact that the top braid was a little off center after baking. Is there any way to remedy that? Input appreciated as I will be making another loaf again very soon. Thanks!
This recipe was a bit of an experiment for me because I was using a kneading mixer; in consequence, my dough had an odd, flaky-looking texture. When I tried to knead it together, it came out exceptionally dense and tough, and I was worried I had ruined it. I wet my hands and kneaded the dough briefly - this repeatedly until I had kneaded in just a bit of moisture that made it look a little more smooth but not really any more promising. But you know what? It worked. It came out great anyway and the braids look fabulous.
Tastes absolutely delicious - any tips though on how to not have the top braid bake off center? Is there a way to adhere the top braid to the base braid? Help!
This was so easy to make and so delicious! I'll be adding it to my cold-weather bread rotation.
