INGREDIENTS

  • ¾ cup milk (180ml)
  • 1 large egg
  • cups unbleached white bread flour (375g)
  • ¼ cup golden flaxseed meal (25g)
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 3 tbsp butter (52g)
  • ½ tsp salt

  • tsp active dry yeast

Filling

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Pour milk into bread machine pan. Add egg. Sprinkle flour and flaxmeal over. Add allspice, butter, salt, and sugar in separate corners of bread pan. Make a shallow indentation in the middle of flour and add yeast. Snap bread pan into bread machine and close lid. Set bread machine to dough setting. Press the start button.
  • Mix all filling ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • When dough cycle has completed, remove dough from machine and place it on a lightly floured surface. Punch down gently and roll into a 12-inch x 16-inch rectangle.
  • Spread the filling mixture lengthwise over the middle third of the rolled out dough, leaving a 1 inch border on either end.
  • Cut diagonal strips of ¾ inch thick angled towards you on either side of filling.
  • Working from the far end, fold the end piece of dough, then braid dough strips over filling. Tuck in the end to seal.
  • Place on a baking sheet. Cover with oiled plastic wrap and leave in a warm place to rise for approximately 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C). Brush egg wash over braid.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
