BRAIDED WHITE LOAF - from Mumsfilibaba

There is nothing better than the smell of a fresh loaf of bread.
I have to bookmark this recipe. I love to bake bread. This is the next recipe I want to try.

OK I made it and now you can see my braided bread. Gorgeous :-) 
I didn't want a sweet one, so I used half of the sugar listed. After I braided the dough I let it rise for another hour. I put it in a preheated oven, at 350F for 45 minutes.
The only problem with the fresh baked bread is that half of it is gone before it cools.
It was heavenly.

My first braided bread
