Cracked Pepper Parmesan Braid Recipe
Homemade bread that smells and tastes so good you may have to lock your doors to keep the neighbors out. :-)
1 1/4 cups warm water
2 packages active dry yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 to 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg + 1 yolk
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons chervil
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Black peppercorns, cracked
Finely grated parmesan
Place 1/2 cup warm water in large warm bowl.
Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Add remaining water, sugar, pepper, salt, and 1 cup flour; blend well.
Stir in egg and egg yolk, chervil, parmesan cheese, and enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
Knead on lightly floured board until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes.
Place in greased bowl, turn.
Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm area until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.
Remove dough to lightly floured board and divide into 3 equal pieces.
Gently roll each piece to 12-inch rope, then braid ropes.
Place on greased baking sheet.
Pinch each end to seal.
Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 30 to 40 minutes.
Brush loaf with egg white.
Sprinkle with cracked pepper and paprika, if desired.
Bake at 375F for 25 to 30 minutes or until done.
If desired, sprinkle with more parmesan cheese immediately after removing from the oven. Remove from sheet; let cool on wire rack.
