Golden egg bread (challah)

Yield: 16 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pack Yeast
3 cups Flour
4 tablespoons Sugar
2 \N Eggs
6 tablespoons Vegetable oil; corn
1½ teaspoon Salt
¾ cup Water; warm
\N \N Optional:
½ cup Dried fruit; chopped
⅓ cup Almonds; chopped
½ teaspoon Almond extract

Combine all ingredients in the pan in the order listed and select white bread; push start When I make this into Challa, I remove from the breadmaker after the manual mode stops; let rise; braid*; and put an egg wash over the challa. Then bake in a 350 degree oven until a light toasty brown. I usually sprinkle on some type of seeds (sesame or poppy) after the egg wash.

*Braiding in the flat manner. The middle one goes under and over; never across.
