Recipe Tools


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine yeast, warm (not hot) milk, salt, butter, eggs and sugar.

2. Add about half the flour and using an electric mixer, beat until smooth. Slowly add the remaining flour to form a stiff dough.

3. Add additional flour until the dough is not sticky anymore. Knead on a floured board until smooth.

4. Place in a greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about an hour.

5. Punch dough down, divide into 12 pieces.

6. Roll each piece to form a 1 inch thick rope about 14 inches long and, taking two pieces, twist to form a "braid", pinching the ends, and loop into a circle.

7. Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until double, about an hour again.

8. Brush each bread with beaten egg wash. Put on the sprinkles.

9. Bake at 350 degrees until golden - about 20 - 25 minutes. Cool on rack.

It seems like there should be some flavoring added. The bread always has a distinct taste.
