Get tired of searching for just the right glaze when baking breads and rolls for those special occasions - keeping a list of glazes close at hand solved it for me.To give your breads a professional finish apply glaze of choice with a soft brush.
GLAZE ONE: Mix egg and water ( or choose milk or cream) and mix together. Apply this ten minutes before baking time is finished.
GLAZE TWO: Mix egg yolk and cream ( or choose milk or water) This glaze gives bread a rich brown look if applied either before baking or ten minutes before baking is done.
GLAZE THREE: Beat egg white with the cold water - gives a shiny look. Apply five minutes before baking is finished.
GLAZE FOUR - SWEET GLAZE: Combine the sifted icing sugar with milk, adding vanilla to taste. Drizzle over loaves after they have been baked - apply twice -- half as soon as taken from oven and then again when bread has cooled a bit.
