    • 3 eggs
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 185g butter, softened
    • 3 1/3 cups (400g) plain flour
    • 1/4 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
    • 1 egg white
    • 2 tablespoons water

    1. Place the first seven ingredients in bread machine in order suggested by your manufacturer. Select dough cycle.
    2. Turn finished dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead 5 to 10 times. Separate into 2 or 3 pieces. Roll with hands into strips. Braid or twist strips together. Place onto a baking paper lined baking tray. Set aside to rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
    3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Whisk together 1 egg white and the water. Brush onto the top of the loaf.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until deep golden brown, about 20 minutes.
