Good Friday Bread

For something unusual, try this caraway bread, a Good Friday tradition in southwest England.

1/2 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105-115)
4-4 1/2 cups flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons caraway seeds

1. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Set aside for 5 minutes. Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, butter, and caraway seeds in mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly.
2. Add yeast mixture, and gradually add remaining flour to form a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth - about 10 minutes.

3. Place in greased bowl, turning to coat top. Cover; let rise in warm place until double - about 1 hour.

4. Punch down dough. Shape into large round loaf. Place on greased baking sheet. Brush top of dough with milk.

5. Cover; let rise in warm place until double - about 45 minutes or until done.

6. Bake in a preheated 400 oven 40-50 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
