Weigh out each piece into equal sizes. Roll into balls and place into a lightly greased 8 1/2 X 8 1/2 square cake pan, 4 across, 4 down.
Cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit till double in size, about 1 hour. After the dough has proofed make your egg wash. In a small bowl add the egg and milk together and beat with a fork. Brush the top of the dough with the egg wash. Bake in a preheat 350F or 176C oven for about 30 minutes. Turn down the heat to 300F or 148C and cover with tin foil so not to burn the top. Bake for about another 10 minute or till the center reads 180F or 82C when a thermometer is placed into the middle of the dough. Remove from oven and remove bread and place onto a wire rack to cool.

Note: you can also bake these in 2 loaf pan instead of a cake pan. Just bake at 350F or 176C for about 30 - 35 minutes. Remove from loaf pan and cool on a wire rack.
