I love how easy this Easter Bread is to make. And what a spectacular piece for your Easter table! Everyone will be so impressed that you made it yourself. You can also top this braided Easter bread with non parils if you care to.
Add the milk to the melted butter.
Pour into the yeast.
Add in the sugar, eggs, and salt.
Add in the flour one cup at a time, until a soft dough has formed. Knead until it becomes elastic.
Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a towel and let rise until double in size.
Punch down the dough. Divide it into 3 parts.
Roll the parts into strands and braid from the middle out.
Form the braid into a wreath shape and tuck the ends under.
Put the eggs into the dough.
Cover and let rise for an hour.
Brush with egg wash
Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 25 minutes.
