Baked by an Introvert
In this baking basics post, I want to share with you the secrets of an egg wash. It is the mixture of eggs and water that is brushed onto baked goods to give them a shiny, brown, irresistible finish.
Place the egg and water in a small bowl.
Whisk with a fork or small whisk until well combined and frothy.
Using a pastry brush, brush the egg wash in a thin, even layer onto the visible parts of the dough. Be careful not to let egg wash pool on the surface or around the base of the pastry.
