This Braided Bread is golden brown, delicious, and nothing short of perfection. I share the easy way to braid challah, so you don’t have to fret, it’s SO easy to do!
This challah recipe makes 1 large loaf or 2 medium loaves of bread, and requires 7 simple pantry essentials.
– Flour – Active Dry Yeast – Olive Oil – Eggs – Honey – Water
HOW TO MAKE CHALLAH
Allow yeast to "bloom" for five minutes. Add the honey, olive oil, eggs and beat until blended. Add flour and beat well.
Continue kneading dough for 3 minutes. Place dough in a bowl, cover and place in a warm spot for one hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
Punch the dough down and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into four equal portions.
Tuck strands over and under alternating between one side and the other. When you reach the end, tuck the strands under the loaf.
