Grape Cluster Bread
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine -- cut up
2 tablespoons water
3 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon active dry yeast or bread machine yeast
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon water
1/2 teaspoon poppy seed
Select the recipe size. Add the first 8 ingredients to the machine according to
the manufacturer's directions. Select the dough cycle. When cycle is complete,
remove dough from the machine. Punch down. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
For the 1-1/2 pound recipe: Remove one-fourth of the dough; cover and set aside.
Divide the remaining dough into 30 portions. Using lightly floured hands, shape
each portion into a smooth ball. Arrange on a greased baking sheet in the shape
of a bunch of grapes. In a small bowl, combine the egg yolk and 1 teaspoon
water; brush some over dough. Sprinkle with poppy seed. On a lightly floured
surface, roll the reserved dough into an 8-in. x 4-in. rectangle; cut in half
crosswise. Cut each square in half diagonally to form grape leaves. If desired,
score leaves to resemble leaf veins. Place leaves on top of the widest end of
bunch of grapes. Brush the leaves with remaining egg yolk mixture.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 to 40 minutes or until nearly double.
Bake in a 375' oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when
lightly tapped. If necessary, loosely cover with foil last 5 to 10 minutes to
prevent overbrowning. Remove; cool on a wire rack.
