How to make it

  • In a bowl combine the water, egg yolks, honey and oil together.
  • Whisk till all the liquid ingredients are well mixed.
  • Add in about two cups of the bread flour and the yeast and salt.
  • Beat together till smooth and very well mixed.
  • Allow to rest for 15 minutes uncovered.
  • After 15 minutes have passed continue to add the rest of the flour, half a cup at a time.
  • Once the dough becomes firm enough to work with your hands. Pour out onto a flat surface and knead for 10 minute till the dough becomes soft and elastic. You may need more flour, add it in 1tbsp at a time.
  • Place the dough in an oiled bowl, and leave to rise for 1 - 1 1/2 hours.
  • After the dough has doubled in size, cut it into 3 even sections.
  • Roll each piece out in to 15 inch sections.
  • Connect all 3 rolled out pieces at one end and start to braid from the right side, tuck the ends of the braid underneath for a nice neat braid.
  • Place the braid on a baking sheet, cover, and let rise again until it has doubled in size.
  • Whisk your leftover egg whites until frothy, and brush lightly over braid.
  • Place the bread in a 400 degree oven and cook for 10 - 15 minutes (watch for browning) turn the oven down to 350, rotate the bread and bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack!
