    Lee Hock's Note:

    After trying out several different bread machine challah recipes, I have come to find the best one. The challah it produces is so light and the perfect combination of sweet and salty. The bread machine I own is an Oster, nothing fancy. As with all bread machine recipes, I will say every once in a while I will have a flop, no idea why this happens sometimes. This recipe calls for 3 yolks, so I will post a link for something easy to do with the whites: Ultra Moist Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake. Everytime I make challah, I also make this cake.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    challahs

    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 egg yolks
    • 1 cup water
    • 3 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, heap the tablespoons
    • 2 3/4 cups and 1 tablespoon bread flour, heap the tablespoon
    • 1 (1/4 ounce) packet active dry yeast
    • 1 egg, beaten for glazing

    Directions:

      Remove dough from the machine onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough into two equal halves. Divide each halve into three pieces, and braid. Place braid onto a cookie sheet covered with a piece of parchment paper. Cover the two braid with a dish towel. Let stand until double in size, about 30 minutes to an hour. Remove dish towel. Use a pastry brush and paint the challahs with beaten egg covering the entire loaf.
