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 add 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 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.
This is a Very large recipe I normally split it in half. but it is great bread!
the only problem with this recipie for people like me who dont bake bread very often is when are you supposed to add the sugar?
My Greatgrand mother made this bread and I have been making it for many years.
