Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl.

Shape each into a round, slightly flat loaf.

Place each loaf in round layer pan (9 X 10 1/2 inches) that has been greased.

Cover and let rise until double (about 1 hour)

Beat 1 egg slightly and brush over loaves.

Sprinkle with 1 tsp of sugar.

Bake until loaves are golden brown (35 – 45 minutes)
