Easiest Challah Ever


Here's a rather blurry photo of a great bread from a mysteriously authorless cookbook I own. The book calls it a "braided loaf" though I'm pretty sure it's officially challah. I call it easy, tasty and very pretty too. The dough is always a dream to work with and the braid makes for impressive presentation.

1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup lukewarm milk
4 tablespoons butter, melted
3 cups flour (I usually use 2.5 cups AP and .5 whole wheat)
1 teaspoon salt
1 lightly beaten egg
1 egg yolk beaten with 1 teaspoon milk for glazing

1. Combine the yeast, honey, milk, and butter, stir, and leave for 15 minutes to dissolve.
2. In a large bowl, mix together flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the yeast mixture and egg. With a wooden spoon, stir from the center, incorporating flour with each turn to obtain a rough dough. (I usually do this with my standing mixer on low with dough hook - works fine).
3. Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in a clean oiled bowl, cover, and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1.5 hours.
4. Grease a baking sheet. Punch down the dough and divide into three equal pieces. Roll to shape each piece into a long thin strip.
5. Braid the strips on the baking sheet, cover, and let rise for about 30 minutes, until nicely puffed.
6. Brush bread with glaze and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 40-45 minutes. Posted by Hello

That looks gorgeous! I'm picturing some French Toast made with that bread....mmmm

I found a recipe in Cooking Light this month for a braided bread. I think it was some sort of Greek Easter bread. It looked quite similar to Challah. It may be the next new bread recipe I try out. (hope it comes out as pretty as yours).

I believe what you posted made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?

what if you were to create a killer headline? I mean,
I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a post title to possibly get people's
attention? I mean "Easiest Challah Ever" is a little
vanilla. You should look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create post titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you've written.

Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit
more interesting.
