The bread machine takes the guesswork out of making the bread dough, and you get to shape this rich, traditional loaf.

Ingredients

3/4
cup plus 1 tablespoon water
1
egg
2
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
3 1/4
cups Gold Medal™ Better for Bread™ flour
2
tablespoons sugar
1 1/2
teaspoons salt
1 1/2
teaspoons bread machine yeast
1
egg yolk
2
tablespoons cold water
1
tablespoon poppy seed

Directions

  • 1 Measure carefully, placing all ingredients except egg yolk, cold water and poppy seed in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
  • 2 Select Dough/Manual cycle. Do not use Delay cycle.
  • 3 Remove dough from pan, using lightly floured hands. Cover and let rest 10 minutes on lightly floured surface.
  • 4 Grease large cookie sheet. Divide dough into thirds. Roll each third into 13-inch rope. Place ropes side by side; braid ropes gently and loosely, starting at the middle. Pinch ends to seal; tuck ends under braid. Place on cookie sheet. Cover and let rise in warm place about 45 minutes or until double. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.)
  • 5 Heat oven to 375ºF. Mix egg yolk and cold water; brush over loaf. Sprinkle with poppy seed. Bake about 25 minutes or until golden brown.
