This recipe was passed on to me by my aunt; we used to beg for her to make this as children. The pepper is slight in comparison to the overall taste. The brushed egg yolk mixture gives the bread a crunchier outside and soft inside.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a tube pan.
  2. Stir together 3 cups of flour, the sugar, pepper, yeast, and salt together in a large bowl.
  3. Heat water and margarine to 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) in a saucepan over low heat. Pour the hot water-margarine mixture into the flour; quickly stir a few strokes to combine. Stir in 1 egg, beat the mixture to form a loose batter, and stir in 1 1/2 cups of flour. Knead the dough on a floured work surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 minutes.
  4. Divide the dough into 12 equal-sized pieces, form them into rolls, and place them into the bottom of the prepared pan. Set the pan into a sink of hot water (about 115 degrees F/46 degrees C) until the rolls have doubled in size, about 15 minutes. Beat egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of water until thoroughly combined; brush the dough with the beaten egg yolk mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Great taste! I made this with whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and honey instead of sugar. I love the light airy texture!

the bread bakes as one. Think of this recipe like that of a monkey bread. Once the individual pieces rise, it will bake as a whole loaf. Hope that helps you.
