This is an enriched bread with standard dough and commercial yeast.

Start with:
3 cups of flour(I used KA bread flower)
3 tablespoons of sugar
3/4 teaspoon of salt
2 packs of instant yeast
A couple of good dashes of lemon extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup of buttermilk
2 pats of butter
Around 1/4 cup of water(but you may need more during mixing, not much though)
About 1/2 bag of dried cranberries
About 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts

Mix all the dry ingredients in a mixer then add the wet stuff except for the water.
Slowly add the water while mixing until you get a soft pliable dough.
Mix together for about 5 minutes on low

Let it sit in the bowl for 2 hours until it doubles in size

Dump it out on a flowered counter. Divide the dough up into 6 pieces. 3 of them larger than the other 3. You just roll them out into logs so you end up with 3 of them longer than the smaller 3. My large ones were about 9" long and the smaller ones were about 6" long

Braid the large pieces together and then the braid the smaller ones and place on top of the larger ones

Let it sit for another hour or so and it should look like this

This is a low temp bread and I cooked it at just over 300 for about 45 minutes after coating it with an egg wash.

Toward the end of the cook it looked like it may get too dark so I draped foil over it to help reduce the browning and still cook.

You can hurt yourself served up like this!!


Is it burnt??

Looks great Ron.  As you say I would hammer that.  Very impressive.  I felt good that I was at least able to tie with you for vote total.

See post 18

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.

Great looking and I bet even better tasting bread. Nice Job.
