HAZELNUT SAFFRON BREAD

Yield: 2 loaves

2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup melted butter
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup finely chopped Oregon hazelnuts
4 eggs
1 egg yolk, mixed with 1/4 cup light cream


Bring water to a boil and pour over saffron threads. Allow to cool to 105; combine with yeast and sugar. Let set 15 minutes.

Mix melted butter, salt, flour, hazelnuts, eggs and yeast mixture.

Beat by hand until smooth.

Punch down and shape into 2 loaves. This can be braided as well.

Brush each loaf with the egg yolk wash, let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
