  • Glaze:
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm milk (110 degrees F)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cardamom
  • 7 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

Servings 2


Step 1

Dissolve yeast in milk in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, sugar, cardamom, and 2-1/2 cups of the flour. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Beat in butter and salt. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled. Punch down and form into 6 long strands. Braid together 3 strands for each loaf. Cover loosely and let rise again until puffy but not doubled. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle on the almonds and sugar. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden.
