Egg wash

Egg wash is a coating applied to many baked goods to give it a great finish.
Egg wash is simply a beaten egg with 1 tbsp of water. In some cases milk, butter or oil is also used in the wash.
Egg wash will leave a slightly shiny coating on top. Sometimes, its also used to make toppings like sesame seeds stick onto the top of the baked food.

Alternative to egg wash is melted butter or oil.
