Ingredients Nutrition

  • GLAZE ONE
  • 1 egg (whole egg)
  • 1 teaspoon water (may use milk or cream instead of water)
  • GLAZE TWO
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon cream (may use milk or water)
  • GLAZE THREE
  • 1 egg white (beaten)
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • GLAZE FOUR SWEET GLAZE
  • 1 cup icing sugar (sifted)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 18 teaspoon vanilla extract (or to taste)

Directions

  1. GLAZE ONE: Mix egg and water ( or choose milk or cream) and mix together. Apply this ten minutes before baking time is finished.
  2. GLAZE TWO: Mix egg yolk and cream ( or choose milk or water) This glaze gives bread a rich brown look if applied either before baking or ten minutes before baking is done.
  3. GLAZE THREE: Beat egg white with the cold water - gives a shiny look. Apply five minutes before baking is finished.
  4. GLAZE FOUR - SWEET GLAZE: Combine the sifted icing sugar with milk, adding vanilla to taste. Drizzle over loaves after they have been baked - apply twice -- half as soon as taken from oven and then again when bread has cooled a bit.
