Oil free challah (breadmachine dough cycle)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Water
1 \N Egg
1 tablespoon Applesauce
1 teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Honey
2 tablespoons Sugar
3 cups White bread flour
2 teaspoons Yeast

Bake in ABM on dough cycle. Can add ½ cup of raisins during second kneading. If you want to cook the bread in the machine, just use the regular white/wheat cycle.

After machine completes, take out and break into three parts. Let rise for 1 hour. Roll out and braid (make round if for Rosh Hashanah). Brush with 1 egg, beaten. Let rise for another hour. Cook in oven at 350 degrees for 25 ~ 30 minutes.

Recommend using very warm water to offset the cold temp of the egg and applesauce (which is usually in the fridge). Note, the amounts of sugar and honey are equal, however, any amount of both or each totalling 4 Tbsp works fine.

Note: I've made mini-challahs with this recipe. I don't have the luxury of making a fresh challah every week, so I made over a dozen mini-challahs and froze them for later use. Just make the pieces smaller.
