Swedish coffee bread

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 teaspoon Cardamom; crushed;(1 to 1 1/2)
2 tablespoons Crisco
2 tablespoons Margarine; melted
1 tablespoon Salt
1 cup Sugar
½ gallon Milk; heat until just warm
2 packs Dry yeast; dissolved in
1 cup Water
8 pounds Flour; Approximately

Put all ingredients in large bowl, gradually adding flour, mixing until ready to knead. Knead 10 minutes and shape into a ball. Put into a greased bowl, let rise until doubled. Punch down and let rise again.

Then divide into 3 balls, roll out into long strands and braid. Put onto greased pans, brush with beaten egg, sprinkle with sugar. Let rise again.

Bake at 325 degree oven approximately ½ hour. Check for doneness. Be careful, because even though the top may be dark the inside may not be done. If the bottom is brown, then the bread should be done.
