“This recipe came from a friend and it is fantastic. I was in Poland in August and enjoyed the bread there so I was glad when I received this recipe. Everyone asks me for the recipe.” - by BOBBIELLEN1
Original recipe yields 6 loaves
- Dissolve yeast packages in 1 cup of warm water. Rinse and dry a small saucepan to prevent milk from scorching and sticking when scalded. Bring milk to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, and add remaining 1 cup warm water, butter, and salt; stir to blend. Once cooled to lukewarm, stir in dissolved yeast.
- In a separate bowl, beat eggs until light and fluffy. Gradually stir eggs into milk mixture. Once blended, add flour gradually until few or no lumps remain. Divide dough in half, and let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Once risen, turn dough out onto a well-floured surface and divide into 6 equal portions. (Dough will be very sticky and soft at this point.) Divide each portion into 3 pieces; braid together, and place on a baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until hollow-sounding when tapped on top. Let cool, and enjoy!

"I have been wanting to try this recipe for several years. Theother day someone gave us a dozen farm fresh eggs and I needed to use them. I gave it 4 stars because 1. the directions don't say when to a..." See moredd the sugar (I did in the first step when prepping the yeast) and 2. It is a LARGE recipe, and when I say large, I mean industrial sized. I halved the recipe and thought the dough was taking over. But it made a very nice and tasty bread. My advice would be to halve the recipe and to it in two stages as I did. I am giving away as Christmas gifts and I kept a loaf for myself...beautiful presentation (I braided the bread as suggested in the recipe) and tastes great."
"My husband lived in poland for a couple years and said they have the best bread he has ever tasted and even at polish restraunts here it cannot be duplicated. I thought I would give this a try anyhow..." See more because I love making fresh bread and it looked delish! I followed the recipe exactly (the dough is really monsterous in size) The results were wonderful. It makes 6 large braided loaves and luckily we had a lot of company that night and it all got eaten. My husband said it didn't taste like the polish bread he remembered but it was really good. It makes a lightly sweet bread. I loved it. "
