This bread made as a braid is very typical for Easter in Germany, also a braid formed to a circle sprinkled with coarse sugar.
1 tsp. yeast
1/4-1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup warm milk
mix together, add
100g soft butter
450-500g flour (sometimes I change a part of it to whole wheat)
knead well, cover, let grow for 1- 1 1/2 h
knead again, form 3 long rolls, braid them together, place on sprayed pan
let grow for 45 min. again.
spread with milk/whipping cream right before baking at 180-200°C for appr. 40 min.
take out of the oven, let cool for a few minutes and take a bite :D
