Braided Egg Bread

I had to redeem myself.

And I succeeded.

I made a perfectly (to me) braided bread. I knew I could do it, I just needed to step back and remember the basics. When I made the Challah, I didn’t have patience and rushed the process.

This time I was out to prove that I could still do it so I took my time and followed the steps.
Getting the strands of similar size and length.

I should talk about what went into making this bread but really and truly I picked this because it was a braided bread. Although it is called an egg bread it only has one egg and 4+ cups of flour, yet it was still a great texture, not as rich as a brioche or a challah but great in it’s own right. I got a very nice rise on the dough which I believe contributed to the wonderful braid.

I used regular canola oil to grease my bowl and baking sheet because I ran out of cooking spray but other than that I didn’t alter the recipe. It is a great simple recipe and will make a great loaf bread if you don’t want to braid it.

My next goal is to do a 6 braid and a circular braid, also some mini braids.

This is my submission for week 13 of 52 weeks of baking.
