- 1 cup warm water shopping list
- 3 tablespoons honey shopping list
- 1 cup all bread flour shopping list
- For the dough shopping list
- 2 large eggs shopping list

- 2 1/2 cups bread flour shopping list

How to make it
- Make the sponge first:
- his dough is made in two stages: a sponge and then the final dough.
- The sponge is merely a very wet dough that the yeast can percolate in.
- After the yeast grows, the rest of the flour is added for a dough of conventional consistency.
- Make the dough:
- Whisk the eggs, egg yolk, oil and salt together.
- Add the flour and dough conditioner to the sponge mixture.
- Add the egg mixture.
- Mix well until the eggs are mixed in.
- Knead the dough until it forms a smooth ball.
- Place dough in an oiled bowl and turn to cover top with oil.
- Cover with plastic film and let it rise at room temp for one more hour or until doubled.
- Turn the dough onto a lightly oiled or floured surface.
- Divide dough into four balls.
- Divide each ball into three balls and roll into ropes about six inches long.
- Braid the ropes, pinching the ends together.
- Place in greased loaf pans (four 3 x 5 1/2-inch pans).
- Cover and let the bread rise in the pans until doubled in size and soft and puffy.
- Whisk an egg, an egg yolk, and one tablespoon warm water together to make an egg wash and brush it over the loaves gently.
- Immediately bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until done.
- The internal temperature of the bread should reach 190 degrees.
- Baker’s notes: The braid does not need to be perfect, it will all even out as it rises and bakes
- 4 small loaves
