This bread is absolutely beautiful, with a golden crust and a tender even crumb. I'd have to say is is one of the prettiest loaves I've ever made. I mixed and kneaded the dough in my KA, then baked as directed. 20 minutes was perfect baking time in my oven. As with the previous reviewer, my only problem was the lack of salt. I added 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt, but would add more next time. I should also note that I use unsalted butter, so I might add more salt than others would. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
I was surprised, on reading the recipe, to discover that there was not salt in it. I added 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and I think a little more would have been appropriate. I wish it would have risen a little higher, but it makes a good rustic loaf, and excellent crisp toast. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT Witchin Kitchen.
This turned out so pretty and taste awesome, it was almost to easy so I was worried about how it would be. I had no problem with no salt, but then I made a salted seed mix for the topping and that might have added to it. I also put it in a bread pan after braiding instead of just a baking sheet as I wanted it a little more compact. I did goof a little and left it in the oven to long so it's to dark - but it still taste great with a lovely shiny crust and soft center crumb - it taste awesome, bet it'll be great on sandwiches.
