A quick, easy recipe for delicious challah.
Yields 2 large challahs
Place all ingredients into bread machine in order. Set for dough cyle. (My machine’s dough cycle is two hours, but I let the dough rise another hour – until pushing the top of the machine up).
Turn out dough onto floured and/or sprayed counter. Knead gently for one minute. Shape and braid challahs. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheets. (I like to double pan to prevent burning of the bottoms).
Let rise, covered, for one hour.
Bake in a preheated 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for about 20 minutes, depending on size of challahs.
Freezes well, well-wrapped.
