  8. Beenish, egg wash is a culinary term used for the last finishing touch in baking. Egg wash gives the baked food e.g. pastry, bread, buns, pie, croissant etc a shiny and golden finish.Egg wash basically consists of an egg and some liquid. For a basic egg wash lightly beat an egg with 2 tablespoon water or milk. Lightly brush it on top of shaped loaf of bread before putting it in oven.
