I've never made bread before and chose to try it out. I chose this recipe and am so happy I did! My husband loves it and says it was the best bread he has ever had. Thats pretty good since he is a bread connoisseur! I am going to make this recipe a tradition in my family!

I added some red food coloring and made it into 2 heart shaped breads for valentine's day, then drizzled them with a light strawberry glaze. They turned out lovely and was a big hit with my daughter! Used my bread machine to make the dough, so it was really simple and fun to make.

Wonderful and easy recipe. I have made this three times now and each time I get better at braiding! I do a four strand braid (I think it looks prettier). Though, this tastes so good out of the oven that the taste pales when it's been out of the oven for more than a couple of hours.

I thought this bread was amazing! I have been looking for a recipe that taste like a steakhouse yeasted bread, and this is it!!! I changed the sugar though, to 1/2 cup honey. I wouldn't stack the bread as is done in the picture. It won't bake all the way through but, brown too fast because of the egg wash. Inside was perfectly tender and sweet, and the outside was a perfect shiny golden brown.

In the 1960's my grandmother would bring us Parker House rolls from Horn and Hardnet in NYC. I have tried to make these and they never tasted anything like the ones she would bring. When I tasted this bread it bought back many memories and I'll make this often. I'll even recreate the rolls I loved so much using this dough. I brushed melted butter along with the eggs to keep the top a bit softer. Next time I will reduce the temperature to 325 as the bottom of the bread was too brown, almost burnt. yumm...

I have made this multiple times and every time people RAVE about it! It is best served fresh & warm, otherwise it dries out quickly. I've also made them in 9x9 pans as dinner rolls (good for portion-conscious people)...they're great with meals, as toast with jelly, or just plain! It has the perfect amount of sugar (I've also sub. honey)- this will become a family recipe!

What a nice bread...i upped the sugar a wee bit and added some cardamom and nutmeg as well as another 3/4 cup of flour - otherwise it was just to sticky to work with. Rather than form braided loaves, i fashioned it into smaller sticks, brushed w/melted butter and doused w/cinnamon sugar. after baking (which, oh my - what an aroma!) i drizzled them with a cream cheese frosting glaze. they are quite delicious - especially w/coffee!! thank you for the recipe.

This was VERY good, but this just wasn't IT for me. I"m still looking for something even chewier and sweeter. But so far this is my favorite recipe. Easy, clear and accurate directions, a delicately sweet bread. I used half whole wheat and half white. Turned out just fluffy and fine and lovely.
