Step 1: Gather the ingredients
Step 2: Add wet ingredients to the bread maker pan
Step 3: Add the dry ingredients (minus the yeast) on top of the wet.
Step 4: Add the yest on top of the dry ingredients.
Step 5: Turn the bread maker to the dough setting for a 1.5 pound loaf
Step 6: Once the bread maker is finished turning raw ingredients into dough, turn out onto a non-stick surface. I LOVE my roulpat.
Step 7: Divdie dough into 3 (somewhat) equal portions.
Step 8: Roll each portion into equal length ropes.
Step 9: Start braiding. I start from the middle and braid to one end, flip the dough around and braid to the other. Thanks to Ari from Baking and Books for that idea.
Step 10: Place the braid into a greased 1.5 pound loaf pan and let rise for 30-45 minutes.
Step 11: Bake!
