Kosher By Design Challah Recipe


½ cup warm water

4 pkgs dry yeast

1 tbsp sugar

7 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 ½ cups veg oil

7 teaspoons salt

4 cups boiling water

1 5 lb bag of flour

1 egg beaten


Place the warm water, yeast and 1 tbsp of sugar into a large glass measuring cup or bowl. Set aside in a
warm place.

Crack 7 large eggs into an 8 quart pot and mix. In a separate large bowl, combine the 2 cups sugar, oil,
salt and boiling water. Mix with a wooden spoon.

When the yeast is bubbly add the yeast mixture into the egg mixture. Add the sugar/oil mixture into the
pot. Stir. Add the flour into the pot in 3 additions, mixing well with wooden spoon between additions.

Sprinkle ½ cup flour on your kneading surface. Knead the dough for 10-15 mintues, adding flour to the
surface as needed. Try not to add too much. It is easier to add more to a sticky dough than to restore a
dough once too much flour has been added.

Put the dough back in the pot. Cover and let the dough rise for 2-3 hours

Take Challah with a blessing.

Shape challahs. Let rise for 30 minutes. Brush with egg and bake in preheated oven at 350 for 30
minutes.

Yield: 6-7 challahs
