DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
