This recipe makes two large loaves.

  • 3 cups water (120-130 degrees)
  • 2 pkgs. (4 1/2 tsp. ) Bread Machine Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 8 to 10 cups all purpose flour
In mixing bowl add 4 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Stir and then add the water. Blend mix and then add the egg beating until smooth.

Add at least 4 more cups flour and stir it in. Put dough on flour covered surface and knead, adding more flour as needed until smooth and elastic. Anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes.

Place in a large greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size. Punch down, divide into two equal amounts.

For regular Shabbos loaves, divide each piece into three pieces, roll and then braid the three sections together. Place in a 9 x 13 baking dish with at least 2 inch sides. This will give you a nice high loaf.

For
Rosh HaShanah, roll each piece into a round shape, place on baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut three slits in the top of the loaf (for decoration).

Allow loaves to rise approximately double in size while oven preheats to 375 degrees. Whisk one egg and baste the egg mixture on top of the loaves once they have risen. Sprinkle with poppy seeds or sesame seeds. Bake 40 minutes.
