Directions:
Combine yeast and water and let sit until bubbly. Add it to flour and mix all ingredients in.
Knead on floured surface until soft - adding more flour until it's not sticky - about 10 minutes.
Let rise in a warm place about an hour in bowl with cloth over it. (Or preheat oven to 250, then put in and turn off.)
Divide the dough in half, and each half into thirds. Roll the thirds into tubes, then braid together, tucking ends underneath.
Bake braided loaves on baking sheet at 400 for about 20 minutes or until golden on top. Remove and let sit with cloth over them for 10 minutes before slicing. Brush tops with butter if crust is hard.
