If you’re trying to stay away from margarine and use more natural ingredients, this kokosh cake recipe is one you’ll want to save. This recipe yields a large amount of cake, so serve some on Shabbat and freeze the rest for another time.

Ingredients

Main ingredients

  • 10 eggs, plus additional egg for brushing

  • 6 pounds flour

  • 2 cups oil

  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons salt

  • 2 cups sugar, divided

  • 5 cups very warm water, divided

  • 4 ounces yeast

Directions

Prepare the Kokosh Cake

1.

Dissolve yeast in one cup warm water with half a cup sugar.

2.

Place remaining ingredients into kneading bowl. Add yeast and knead very well for five to seven minutes. Dough will be moist. (Work on a well-floured surface.)

3.

Set aside to rise for one hour.

4.

Knead once again for a few seconds until all air bubbles are out. Divide into eight equal parts.

5.

Roll out each part, spread with oil and sprinkle favorite filling. (Click here for a recipe with eight filling variations.)

6.

Roll up jelly-roll fashion. Place into lined baking pans and brush with beaten egg.

7.

Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour.

Notes:

Don’t forget to take challah from your dough. (Read more about hafrashat challah here.)
