Seath of Wheat bread

http://www.4ormore.co.uk/projects/pix/monthlies/harvestbread.jpg
You'll Need
300g/12oz plain flour
pinch of salt
1/2 sachet quick-action dried yeast (3.5 grams)
1 dessert spoon vegetable/sunflower oil
210ml/3/8 pint warm water


Glaze
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon water

Separate egg, keeping the yolk. Mix with water using a fork and brush onto bread before baking.

MethodSet your oven at 425F/220 C.
Sift the flour and add the yeast and salt. Make a well in the centre and pour the warm water and oil into the centre. Mix into a firm dough, adding a little more water or flour if the consistency is too dry or sticky. Place the dough onto a floured surface and have some fun kneading it for 5 minutes.
Now we can make either a plait or a wheatsheaf. Refer to the pictures below for instructions.

Easy Thanksgiving plait bread



Wheatsheaf
The wheatsheaf, a symbol of a successful harvest for Thanksgiving.

Once you have finished your design brush it with the egg yolk glaze.
Get mom or dad to carefully place your bread onto a greased baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
Tap the bread to see if it sounds hollow - this way you'll know that it's properly cooked!
Cool on a wire tray.
Either of these will make a great centrepiece for your Thanksgiving table.
