Course Dessert


  • 2 packages yeast
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten


  • Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Add enough flour to mix to heavy batter. Add salt, oil and all but 2 teaspoons of beaten eggs. Add enough flour to make a firm dough. Knead for 5 minutes.
  • Cut dough in half, and each half into thirds. Make 3 long ropes and braid.
  • Let dough rise for 45 minutes. Use remaining 2 teaspoons of egg to brush on dough.
  • To decorate your bread, you can turn your braided rope into a ring and gently press five colored eggs (pastel, or red, if you want to go “Greek”!) into your braid.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.
