Challah
What You Need:
  • 2 pound flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 pint hot potato water or plain hot water
  • 4 tablespoons fat
  • 2 oz yeast
  • 3 eggs
  • A pinch of saffron added to hot liquid

  • How To Cook:
    1. Sift flour and salt into a large mixing bowl and stand in a warm place. Dissolve sugar and fat in the hot liquid.

    2. When cooled to lukewarm, dissolve the yeast in some of the liquid and stir into the flour to make a sponge in the centre of the bowl.

    3. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Add slightly beaten eggs to the sponge and stir in remaining liquid and flour to make dough.

    4. Turn out on a floured board and knead thoroughly until smooth and elastic. The dough should not stick to the hand or board.

    5. Return dough to the bowl, brush top with fat or dust with flour, cover with a clean cloth and let rise in a warm place until approximately double in bulk.

    6. Knead on floured board for 10 minutes and shape into coils for round loaves. Place on greased or floured baking sheet and let rise again till about double in bulk.

    7. Brush with egg yolk and water and bake for 15 minutes at 400░F; reduce heat to 375░F and bake for 45 minutes or till nicely crusted and light brown on the bottom.

    To Make: 2 loaves
