Spice and Spirit The Complete Kosher Jewish Cookbook

by Esther Blau,
 Tzirrel Deitsch, Cherna Light

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar in 1/2 cup warm water. Crumble yeast into sugar-water, mix, and let stand until it begins to foam. Add eggs and mix well. Add sugar, oil, and wheat germ, and mix again.

Slowly add hot water, flours and salt, alternating liquid and dry ingredients. When dough forms a single ball, place on floured board and knead until smooth.

Place in oiled bowl and turn so top is oiled. Cover with towel and let rise 30 to 45 minutes until doubled in bulk. Punch down. Let rise again until doubled.

Punch down. Separate challah with a blessing. Divide dough into four parts and shape loaves. Place in greased pans and let rise 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


Brush loaves with beaten egg to glaze and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes, then lower temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on racks.
