Here is my recipe
1 large egg plus enough water to equal 1 cup 2 Tablespoons
1/4 cup butter at room temp.
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups Bread flour (add a little more if dough seems too wet)
3 tbsp. nonfat Dry milk
3-5 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. bread machine yeast
6 raw eggs, dyed and brought to room temperature (I have found if the eggs are cold, they will not cook completely during the baking time for the bread)
6 hard boiled, dyed eggs
Place dough ingredients in bread pan in order listed above
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
In addition, you may want to drizzle on a glaze made of 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, 1/2 tsp. melted butter, splash of almond extract and a few grains of salt stirred with a bit of milk, water or orange juice to desired consistency.
*For a larger opening in the center of the finished braided bread, I coated a Pyrex bowl (5-inch diameter) with PAM and placed the braided dough around it. But the bread looks just fine baked without the bowl too.
