Bread Machine Challah
- 5/8 cup water, room temperature
- 1 1/2 Tble oil
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 3 cups bread flour
- 4 1/2 Tbl sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/4 tsp rapid rise yeast
This is best done on the dough setting, so you can
make the traditional braid. The order of ingredients
is the order I add them to my 1.5 lb Hitachi machine.
After the cycle, punch the dough down on a well-floured
surface ( the dough is sticky). Divide into 3 parts and
roll into long ropes. Braid, let rise about 50 minutes
until almost double in size. Bake 25 min in pre-heated
350 degree oven.
Comments: seeds befor baking. This bread tastes better the next day
when completely cool.
If you want, brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with poppy
