Set your bread machine to the ""dough"" cycle. Add first 6 ingredients to your loaf pan in order listed. Level off and make a well in the center of the flour and add yeast.

When dough cycle is completed, spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface, knead 5-6 times. Shape into a loaf, cover and let rise in a warm draft-free place for about 30 minutes.
Make an incision along the top of the loaf with a sharp thin knife. Brush entire loaf with beaten egg white and sprinkle generously with sugar.
Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Bread is done when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean
