In most cultures, the New Year is about the promise of good fortune and good luck. It’s a time to step away from the past and look forward to the future. The horseshoe has often been seen as a sign of luck, and this horseshoe shaped bread evokes that spirit. You can actually make this bread with a variety of bread recipes considering that the horseshoe shape defines the luck and the occasion.

We’re featuring a classic egg-bread recipe here that you put through the dough cycle and then shape into a horseshoe to finish in the oven.

 6 cups all-purpose flour or bread flour
 2 tablespoons of bread machine yeast or active dry yeast

    I’m glad you got a good result. The horseshoe shape shows up with a lot of bread recipe variations. The shape is the only common denominator and is usually used as an expression of good luck.

    this is the closet i’ve seen but not exactly. in the 1970’s macalls cooking magazine would come out i think monthly or so with awesome recipes. there was a horseshoe shaped bread filled with citrine and i don’t remember what else. it’s that bread recipe i am looking for i remember it would rise in a bowl for a while and then once rolled out, filled and shaped in a horseshoe i think it would rise again but not sure. it was awesome i filled it with different things. i just want the good recipe for the horseshoe bread. thanks
