Spice and Spirit The Complete Kosher Jewish Cookbook

by Esther Blau,
 Tzirrel Deitsch, Cherna Light

Dissolve yeast in water in a large bowl. Add honey and let stand 2 minutes, until yeast foams. Add salt, oil, and eggs and mix well.

Gradually add flour, 2 cups at a time, mixing after each addition. As mixture gets stiff, use floured hands and begin kneading. Knead for 7 minutes, turning dough over often.

Let rise in greased bowl until doubled in size, approximately 1 hour. Punch down dough. Separate challah without a blessing.

Divide dough into thirds, shape as desired, and place in greased pans or on baking sheet. Let rise again until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Brush with glaze. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. If unable to shape loaves after first rising, punch down dough and let rise again.
