Five-Topping Bread


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon each poppy seeds, sesame seeds and caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, butter, egg yolk, 1-1/2 teaspoons salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into two round loaves. Place each on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Beat egg white and water; brush over loaves.
  • 4. Combine the poppy seeds, sesame seeds, caraway seeds, onion and remaining salt; sprinkle over loaves. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 5. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into wedges; serve warm.

    I have made this multiple times for my family and 2 loaves don't last very long! Very delicious!

    I made this bread for a bake sale at church. A lady called and asked me if I made the bread or bought it because it was so good and looked so professionally done. Great recipe for bread.

    I have made this 3 times. the first 2 times I made the dough stiffer and the loaves were more dense. The last time I used less flour and the dough was softer and stickier and the bread spread out more but was a softer bread. Either way, it was delicious.
