This was the first time I made bread without using my breadmaker....and it was very good. It looked very "fresh from the bakery"...my whole family loved it. I didn't bake it nearly as long as suggested...it turned golden brown very quickly
GREAT recipe! Most excellent flavor. Looks too pretty to slice into!
I brushed 2 tablespoons of soft butter all over the top(s) as soon as the loaf(s) came out of the oven. Since the basics of kneading, rising and braiding are not included; I would suggest the novice baker do a little research on these three fundamental elements of baking bread, before tackling this recipe. I know the rest of us will include this delicious bread in our favorites file. Thanks so much for sharing.
P.S. Don't forget to lightly grease your
cookie sheet before placing your braided dough on it for the last "rise".
Anyone that's stumped trying to braid a four strand, see my Profile for my email address. I'll send step-by-step instructions.
This was a fantastic recipe - yielding a very yummy bread. I added vanilla to give it more flavor and liberally sprinkled on poppy seeds as my family loves them. The bread was a bit doner than I like at 30 minutes I would suggest checking after 25.
I made this only without the poppy seeds. It was a very nice looking loaf and turned out to be much much larger than I had expected (this makes a good sized loaf). If I made this again I would defnitely half the recipe. This was good right out of the oven but the leftovers did not fare so well; it took on a very chewy tough texture the next day and I had to throw it out.
This is the first time I ever tried to make bread. I chose something of my ancestry and it came out perfectly! It was delicious and looked like a pro had made it! Ha ha! Easy and great tasting. No editing at all- followed the recipe exactly!
