Spice and Spirit The Complete Kosher Jewish Cookbook

by Esther Blau,
 Tzirrel Deitsch, Cherna Light

Pour warm water into a large mixing bowl.  Stir in yeast, and then add eggs, oil honey, and raisins.  Mix well and add about half of the flour.  Stir well.

Let mixture rest 45 minutes to 1 hour until the yeast is bubbly.  This the first rising.

Add the salt and most of the remaining flour. Mix and knead on a lightly board, adding only as much flour as necessary to be able to handle the dough.  The dough should be soft.  You may let the dough rise again for 1 hour, if desired.

Separate chall with a blessing. Divide dough, and shape loaves.

Place over to 350 degree F.

Brush tops of loaves with beaten egg and sprinkle with poppy seeds.  Bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour for loaves, or 30 minutes for rolls.  Remove from pans and cool on racks
