Everything Bread

Prep : 45 minutes + rising         Bake : 25 minutes
Yield: 25 Servings

1               package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
3/4            cup warm waster (110*to 115*)
1               cup warm milk (110* to 115*)
1/4            cup butter softened
2               tablespoons sugar
1               egg yolk
1-1/2         teaspoons salt
4-1/2         cups all-purpose flour
1               egg white
2               tablespoons water
1               teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt
1               teaspoon dried minced onion
1               teaspoon each sesame, caraway and poppy seeds

1 .       In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, butter, sugar, egg yolk, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
2 .      Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
3 .       Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough into thirds. Shape each into a 20-in. rope. Place ropes on a large greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
4 .    Preheat oven to 375°. Combine egg white and water; brush over dough. Combine salt, onion and seeds; sprinkle over bread. Bake 22-28 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf (25 slices).


  1. Your bread reminds me of the Everything Bagels I use to be able to get down in New York. Oh how I miss them:(

    I don't know if I have ever told you but I have what I call "yeastaphobia"

    I don't bake bread, ever! I hope to change that one day but until then I will just have to dream I'm noshing on your heavenly looking loaf.

    Thanks for sharing, Nee...
