Swiss Butter Bread Braid...Trying saying that three times in a row and fast!!
This is an easy recipe, and as you know I am a bit mad on yeast. The satisfaction of a dough coming together and the homey smell of a baking loaf of bread is hard to beat. SO rise to the occasion and get mixing...
I hope you enjoy.

- 50 g butter
- 300 g milk
- 500 g bakers flour
- 30 g yeast or 2 sachets
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 egg, beaten with a drop of milk
Place butter and milk into Thermomix bowl and warm 2 min/50ºC/speed 2.
Add flour, yeast, sugar and salt and blend 10 sec/speed 6.
Knead 3 min/Interval.
Turn out onto Silpat mat and wrap. Allow to double.
Preheat oven to 220ºC on a bread baking setting if you have one…(this is not fan forced, but rather conventional).
Divide the dough into two and roll each piece into a long sausage. Join them at one end and twist them into a braid and then join them in a large ring shape. Allow to prove until looking nice and plump. Brush with egg wash and prove a little longer.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden and shiny. Cool before cutting.
