Braided Egg Bread

This loaf doesn’t need much more than the sweet-and-toasty crunch of sugar and slivered almonds to showcase its lovely texture and egg-wash shine. A newbie to braided breads? Don’t worry; the dough is deceptively easy to work with. If you’ve ever plaited a friendship bracelet—or hair, let’s be honest—you’re more than qualified to pull off this springtime baking project.
