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.

How to Make Braided bread with Sugar and Milk

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix yeast and warm water, and let sit so that the yeast can react. The yeast should begin to foam.
  • 2Mix dry ingredients together.
  • 3In 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).
  • 4Mix yeast/water with dry ingredients. When thoroughly incorporated, mix in milk/egg mixture until a dough is formed.
  • 5Knead dough, then cover, and let rise about an hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • 6Punch down the dough and form into the desired shape (one or two braided loaves, rolls, etc.). Again, cover and let double in size.
  • 7Bake bread at 350 for about 20 minutes. (If making rolls, you may need to adjust the time.)
  • 8Liberally butter top of loaf.
