DIRECTIONS

  • Place all the ingredients (except for the egg and the sesame seeds) in a bowl and knead until a good smooth dough has been achieved.
  • You can either do this by hand or in a counter-top mixer with a dough hook.
  • Place the dough in a bowl and let rise for one hour.
  • During this one hour, punch down and knead the dough every 15 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into the amount of loaves you want, then divide each piece into 3 and start braiding.
  • Place the braids on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Brush with egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Let rise for another 1/2 an hour.
  • In the meantime, preheat the oven to 150 degrees C (300 degrees F).
  • Bake the braids for 1/2 an hours.
  • The dough is almost idiot-proof.
  • It comes out smooth and gorgeous and the challahs are amazing.
  • Very addictive.
