Braided bread with Sugar and Milk

I made this for a medieval Halloween dinner for the first time and loved it. Also after it was refridgerated it seemed to become more of a dense bread then the light almost "fluffy" bread soon after it was made.

Prep:

2 Hr 30 Min

Cook:

2 Hr

Ingredients

3 1/3 c
sifted flour
1/2 c
sugar
2 tsp
yeast
1/2 c
milk
3
egg yolks
3 Tbsp
rose water
1/2 c
warm water (110 degrees f)
1 Tbsp
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix yeast and warm water, and let sit so that the yeast can react. The yeast should begin to foam.
2
Mix dry ingredients together.
3
In a small saucepan, heat milk, rosewater, butter, and egg yolks. Be careful not to let the eggs cook and become solid. (I used regular water as i was out of rose water).
4
Mix yeast/water with dry ingredients. When thoroughly incorporated, mix in milk/egg mixture until a dough is formed.
5
Knead dough, then cover, and let rise about an hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
6
Punch down the dough and form into the desired shape (one or two braided loaves, rolls, etc.). Again, cover and let double in size.
7
Bake bread at 350 for about 20 minutes. (If making rolls, you may need to adjust the time.)
8
Liberally butter top of loaf.
