Bread Machine Honey Whole Wheat Challah

Bread Machine Honey Whole Wheat Challah created by jacquelinelevine

We make this every week in our house. People keep asking for the recipe -- we think they're impressed to find a healthy challah that also tastes great! It resembles actual bread more than cake. Just throw the ingredients into a bread machine with a "dough" cycle, braid, & bake!

directions

  • Add water, eggs, olive oil, honey, sugar, and flour to the bread machine bowl in that order.
  • Make a well on top of the flour mound and add the yeast.
  • Add salt along the side of the flour mound.
  • Set your bread maker to run a "dough" cycle.
  • Remove dough and braid challah (this is the fun part! See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0kf0MFRpXg for instructions.).
  • (Optional) For a professional look, coat the braided challah with egg using a basting brush, and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
  • Bake at 325 F for 30-40 minutes.

    I want to try this recipe for Rosh Hashanah this year! What type of whole wheat flour have people used? Can I use 4 tablespoons of honey instead of using regular sugar?

    I've read that a tablespoon of orange juice in the batter when using whole wheat flour cuts the harsher taste of whole wheat. I've used half white and half whole wheat. I'm also making a round challah for the New Year with raisins and plan to use this recipe. When shaping, instead of a braided challah, I make a rope and use a 10 inch spring form pan. Turns out excellent.
