Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


* 1 Cup Warm Water
* 2-1/4 tsp yeast (not rapid rise - but the regular jar kind)
* Scant 1/2 Cup Sugar
* Scant 1/2 Cup vegetable oil
* 2 to 3 tsp Salt
* 1 whole egg + 1 egg yolk
* 4 Cups flour

Set the machine on Sweet Dough. After the machine is done, let it the dough rise again in the machine. I then punch it down, take it out, and put it into an oiled bowl and cover it. I let it sit for about an hour (If I have time, If I don't then I skip this rise) I then, punch it down, and make my braids. (I do a four braid). This will make 2 med loafs or one large loaf. Put the Challah (or challot) on greased cookie sheet(s), cover and let rise for an hour. Before baking, brush with a beaten egg mixed with a bit of water, sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds. Bake at 325 for 30-45 minutes, until golden brown.
