Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

1/2 Cup(s) Warm Water
1 Teaspoon(s) Sugar
1 Dry active yeast
Combine these and let sit
for later use
Pinch(s) Saffron
3 Cup(s) Flour, up 2 4 cups
3 Eggs, or subs.
1/3 Cup(s) Veg. oil
3 Tablespoon(s) Honey
2 Tablespoon(s) OJ
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Beaten egg, set aside
Combine these 2 ingredients and let sit in warm place until it
bubbles and foams. "proofing the yeast" Sift 2 1/2 cups of the flour
into a glass bowl. Make a well in the center and add the yeast, 3
eggs, veg. oil, honey, OJ, salt, and saffron. Beat either with dough
hooks, or by hand until well mixed and a soft dough is formed. Start
to add more flour and knead it in until you get a non-sticky dough
ball. Turn out onto floured surface and knead it for ten mins. until
very elastic. 3-5 mins. Oil a bowl and place the dough ball in it and
coat well. Cover and let rise in warm place for 1 1/2 hrs. Punch down.
Let stand covered for 1 hour. Punch down. Remove to floured board and
shape into a round by rolling on the board until it is a rope about
18-22"'s long. Curl it up and place on oiled sheet and cover and let
stand for 1 hour or until double. Brush with beaten egg and bake at
375 for 15 mins. lower to 350 and bake for 25 mins. more or until
golden and hollow sounding when thumped on botton. Now if you want you
can sprinkle on seeds of your choice before baking and after brushing
with the egg. Or you can add rasins to the bread, by flattening it,
and patting on rasins and then rolling it up jelly roll style and then
forming it into the round. You can also bake it in a braid by
splitting the dough into three pieces, and rolling each 20 "'s long
pinch one end together and "braid" the ropes. Pinch the other end.
Then follow the directions for baking. I hope you all try this bread
as it is relly great. It can also be used as Easter bread and have
candied fruit added to it and then glazed with a powder sugar glaze
and sprinkle on collored jimmies. If anyone bakes this bread please
let me know how it goes:) TTYL From Gemini's MASSIVE MealMaster
