This is a delicious bread! I expected a same old same old, but it was tasty and easy. I wish that I hadn't made the three strands so thin and long, the finished pieces weren't very big. I didn't glaze it either, but the crust was almost flaky! Thank you so much!

Directions

  1. Combine the yeast, honey, milk, and butter, stir, and leave for 15 mintues to dissolve.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture and egg. With a wooden spoon, stir from the center, incorporating flour with each turn, to obtain a rough dough.
  3. Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a clean bowl, cover, and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Grease a baking sheet. Punch down the dough and divide into three equal pieces. Roll to shape each piece into a long thin strip.
  5. Begin braiding from the center strip, tucking in the ends. Cover loosely and leave to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375*F. Place the bread in a cool place while oven heaats. Brush with the glaze and bake until golden, 40 to 45 minutes. Set on a rack to cool completely.
