“Absolutely delicious. I have a two pound bread machine and use it to make the Challah dough. It freezes well.”

Directions

  1. Place warm water, sugar, honey, vegetable oil, salt, 2 eggs, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough cycle; press Start.
  2. After the machine is done, take the dough out, and place it on a very lightly floured board, punch the dough down, and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough in half. Then divide into 3 equal pieces, roll into ropes about 12 to 14 inches, and braid into a loaf. Do the same with the remaining other half. Gently put the loaves on a greased cookie sheet, mist with water, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and let rise for 1 to 1 1/2 hours in a warm, draft free place, until double in size.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small bowl, beat together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water.
  5. Brush risen loaves with egg mixture. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 to 25 minutes. If it begins to brown too soon, cover with foil.

If you read through the previous reviews, the 1 constant remark “the bread is sticky” appears. We added an additional ¾ c flour to our bread machine (using a total of 4 ½ c flour) which did the trick. What’s the point of using the bread machine if you’re kneading more (in this case A LOT) of extra flour in the end? Our finished product turned out well.

This dough is fantastic! Chewy, yeasty, sweet. Makes a better challah than a deli! It makes 2 medium sized loaves, and we often braid one, place it on slightly greased waxed paper, then a ziploc bag, and pop it in the freezer. We can defrost it, let it rise, and bake it weeks later.

This is a fantastic recipe! My only question is: the dough comes out of the bread machine very sticky and is hard to work with. any suggestions?
