Instead of dividing the dough in half, as we did for the swirled loaf pan bread, I divided the dough in 3 equal parts.
Then I braided the dough. If you want to go for an even more festive loaf, here are instructions for a 6-strand braid.
Tuck the ends under. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment or a Silicone Baking Mat and let rest for about 90 minutes or up to 2 hours.
Brush with egg white wash and sprinkle with Swedish Pearl Sugar.
Bake for about 30+ minutes or until just set in the middle when pressed.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
