Directions:
Mix yeast with a little very warm water and 1 tblsp. of sugar. Let sit for about 10 minutes while mixing together the milk, butter, sugar, salt, lemon rind and eggs (save a bit of beaten eggs to paint the loaves.) Add yeast mixture to the rest, then stir in the flour 1 cup at a time.

When dough is kneading consistency, turn it out on a floured board and knead for about 10 minutes till dough is smooth. Let dough rise covered, in an oiled bowl till double in bulk, about 1 hour.

Punch it down. Separate dough into 2 large or 3 medium sized portions. Split each portion into 3 and roll each third into a snake shape. Then make a braid by pinching the 3 snakes together at one end, braiding and then pinching the other ends together.

Put loaves on buttered baking sheets, cover, and let rise till double in size again. Then gently brush each top with egg and sprinkle with poppy or sesame sees if you like. Bake at 300-325 for about 35-45 minutes, till nicely brown.
