  • 1/2 lb Loaf:
  • 2 lrg Large eggs
  • 5/8 c. water tepid
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil corn Or possibly other bland oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 3 c. bread flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp Yeast Rapid-Rise


  1. I have a Hibachi 1.5 lb machine and the specified order for ingredients is wet then dry. When I am there, I add in the yeast about 30 sec. after it starts mixing. Otherwise just put it on top of the dry ingredients. I use the dough setting and then braid and bake it by hand.
  2. Add in to machine in the manufacturers prefered order (Hitachi is wet first, but dry first works fine in other machines). Select dough mode. Remove when first rise is finished and punch down on a floured surface (dough is slightly sticky and very puffy). After resting for a few min, divide intothirds, roll into ropes and braid. Let rise till almost doubled in a hot place, about 45 min. I braid the loaf and place on a slightly oiled cookie baking sheet to rise. Bake in a pre-heated 350 deg. F oven for 25 min (approx). You can give it an egg wash, but I find the loaves get nicely brown without it.
