    Chickee's Note:

    Zopf is a soft milk bread and is a family tradition with us; it is usually served with butter and jam, although can also be served with soft cheeses and cold meats. It is a breakfast or dinner bread. If you need to know how to do the plait, let me know and I'll send you a diagram! Based on a Betty Bossi recipe.

    Yield:

    loaves

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix together all ingredients except egg yolk to make a soft dough. Knead 10 minutes or so.
    2. 2
      Divide into 4 and make long sausages with the dough.
    3. 3
      Form the sausages into 2 square crosses.
    4. 4
      Plait each cross, using a 4 strand plait, so that you end up with two loaves of plaited bread.
    5. 5
      Put in the fridge until ready to bake- overnight, for example.
    6. 6
      Paint the loaves with a little of the egg yolk.
    7. 7
      Place a water bath under the oven shelf. Bake in the bottom half of a 220 degree Celcius preheated oven for 10 minutes, then turn the temperature down and bake at 200 degrees for 40 minutes.
