Ingredients

1 ½ cup milk
5 large eggs
¾ cups butter
¾ teaspoons salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cardamom seeds
1 pkg yeast, active dry
*
9 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

Scald milk, add sugar, butter, salt, and cardamon. Let cool.

Dissolve yeast in ¼ cup warm water, add eggs and 2 cups flour. Mix well. Let rest for 10 or 15 minutes. Add flour (7 cups +/-) until a stiff dough is formed. Knead, then cover with towel. Let rise to double in size, about 2 hours.

Punch dough down and divide into 9 equal parts.

Roll each of the 9 pieces of dough into strips. Make loaf by taking 3 strips and twisting together gently into a rope shape.

Place loafs on baking trays and let rise until at least double in size.

Bake in a preheated oven 350℉ (180℃) F/175C for 30 minutes (or more) until browned and the loaves sound hollow when tapped.

Remove from oven, cool on wire rack and serve.
