Challah-bread machine

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
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 \N Whole egg plus
1 \N Egg yolk
4 cups Flour

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.
