To make without a bread machine: Put yeast and warm water in mixer like Bosch or Kitchenaid, let sit 5 minutes or until frothy. Add brown sugar, butter softened, onion, onion powder, dried milk, salt, poppy seed, and pepper in order. Lightly mix for 15 seconds. Add flour until it pulls away from the sides of the mixer and the walls of the bowl are clean from any dough or flour. (about 2 1/2- 3 1/2 cups) Let knead for 10-12 minutes. Put in a lightly greased bowl and turn to coat all of the ball of bread. Cover and let rise for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size. Punch down and form into loaves (or braid and place on greased baking sheet) and let rise again for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes at 350.
The bread is AWESOME! I add extra poppy because we love poppy. The recipe as written is a 5 star recipe!
