Zupfa Bread

This is always a hit. The recipe makes 6 loaves.

3/4 C Butter
2 C Milk (melt butter w/ milk on low in the microwave)
1 TBS Salt
3/4 C Sugar
5 eggs hand whipped
3 TBS yeast in 1 C warm water (an additional 3TBS of the sugar in)
11 C (approx) White Flour (until dough becomes sticky and satiny)

Raise covered, punch down and divide into 6 equal balls
Divide each ball into 4 equal parts, roll into strands and braid left to right (over under over under), repeat.

Bake 350 for about 25-30 minutes

My kids are dying for me to make this because they know how good Karen's bread it... The whole braiding thing is making me nervous!
