    Easy to do using your bread machine to make the dough. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds before baking to add more flavor.

      Marie, a very good recipe. I made it exactly as written, making it into 2 smaller loaves. It browned very nicely. Just a little hint for beginners: when braiding, start in the middle, braid to the end, then turn loaf and continue braiding to the other end. That makes a nicer, more even loaf. Thanks for posting...Janet

      Fabulous recipe! I cant make enough of it. It never lasts long. I make two braided loaves and often give them away to neighbours and as hostess gifts. Everybody loves them! Thanks so much!
