Homemade Challah Bread recipe
This Homemade Challah Bread makes for the best french toast ever!
Homemade Challah Bread with a 6 Stranded Braid
- 2 1/2 cups warm water
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- 1/2 cup honey
- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 8-9 cups flour
- 1 egg + 1 tablespoon water egg wash
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the warm water, yeast, honey, vegetable oil, eggs, and salt. Add in the flour 1 cup at a time, mixing on a low speed in between. Mix until well combined and the dough is smooth and elastic. Add a little more flour if it is still sticking to the side of the bowl. The dough will be slightly sticky (you don’t want a stiff dough), but it should be able to form a ball in the mixer.
Place the dough into a bowl that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Let rise for 1 1/2 hours.
Divide the dough into two loaves. For each loaf, divide the dough into 6 balls and roll into strands about 12 to 15 inches long (or 3 if you want to do a normal braid). Pinch the strands together at one end and braid (see video) Once you reach the end of the strands pinch them together. Repeat with the other loaf.
Place the braided loaves on a baking sheet covered with nonstick cooking spray. Let rise 1 hour.
In a small bowl whisk together the 1 egg + 1 tablespoon water. Brush it over the loaves. This is called an egg wash.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes. Cool before slicing.
