|1 cup||Warm Water|
|2¼ teaspoon||Yeast (not rapid rise - but the regular jar kind)|
|½ cup||(scant) Sugar|
|½ cup||(scant) vegetable oil|
|2 teaspoons||Salt (up to 3)|
|1||Whole egg plus|
Put into bread machine in the order listed.
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.
