Bread machine holiday challah

Yield: 16 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Water
2 Eggs
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Honey
1½ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Gluten Flour, 100%; Wheat Gluten
3½ cup Flour
2½ teaspoon Yeast
¾ cup Golden raisins
Egg wash:
1 Egg; beaten with a few
Drops of water

Add ingredients except for egg wash to bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer.

Set machine for dough cycle and start it. If you used extra-large or jumbo eggs, you will most likely need to add flour. Watch as the machine kneads the dough. If the dough does not form a ball but sticks to the sides of the pan, add flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Wait until each tablespoon is kneaded in before adding more. When dough cycle ends, remove dough to floured board and knead a few times with floured hands. Add only as much flour as necessary to keep dough from sticking. Shape dough into a thick rope, then coil into a flat round, like a cinnamon roll. Move to a greased baking sheet. Brush generously with egg wash. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and a towel, then let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Brush again with egg, then bake at 350 degrees until loaf is golden brown top and bottom, 30-40 minutes. Makes 1 large loaf.
