So good. My grandchildren where there the day I made it and before I knew it, it was gone.
Absolutely delicious!! Made one for my family and 1 for a friend. Will definitely make again.
I made this traditionally and thought it was easy and tasty. My entire house smelled divine. I went a step further and added some cinnamon to the dough which gave the bread a comforting taste!
It was rather easy, tasted average but it looked pretty! I may make it again because it was easy and pretty.
@MissCarol44...yes, you can add the egg and water measured into the measuring cup together as this recipe does not give a water amount separately. It should work fine for you. Looks like you have to add the water as the only other liquid ingredient besides the egg is the 1/4 c. butter...somewhere you need to add liquid or it will be dry and not work at all. Since using yeast, if you are not using a bread machine be sure your water is warm, between 110 and 120 degrees for your yeast to activate. Also, do not add your salt and yeast together. Mix your salt into your bread flour and then add your yeast, as salt will kill the yeast and it will not activate to rise. Good luck and have fun.
I can not write a review yet as I have a question for all cooks out there. I don't have a bread machine, so do I still put the egg in the measuring cup and add the water? Or do I just add the egg and water separately? I don't make bread often, but willing to try. Bless you.
I fix this bread at least twice a month. My husband loves it. The aroma in the house is so sweet and gives you warm feeling, I do not use a bread machine, I do it the old fashion way. I pass along slices to our friend Chef Jim, this is one of his favorites too.
This bread is wonderful! I don't have a bread machine, so I made it the old-fashioned way. It smelled, looked, and tasted divine. I took it to a family afternoon gathering, just braided and still rising. We had it with coffee about 20 minutes after it was baked and glazed. Soooo good. I had multiple requests for the recipe. You just can't beat a good yeast bread! Thank you for sharing your recipe. :)
