• 1/2 cup of warm water
• 4 packets (or 3 tablespoons) of active dry yeast
• 1 tablespoon of sugar
• 7 eggs
• 2 cups of sugar
• 1 and a 1/2 cups of canola oil
• 7 teaspoons of salt
• 4 cups of boiling water
• 5 pound bag of bread flour
• 2 eggs for the egg wash to put on before baking with your toppings of choice.
1. Proof the yeast: Place the 1/2 cup warm water, yeast, 1 tbl sugar in a large glass measuring cup or bowl. Set aside until yeast gets bubbly.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the 2 cups sugar, boiling water, salt, and oil.
3. Crack eggs into large bowl (or your mixer bowl). Add proofed yeast, mix again. Add the sugar/water mixture. Mix thoroughly.
4. Add the flour in batches, incorporating well each time.
5. Knead dough for 10-15 minutes, adding flour as needed until you get that earlobe.
6.Place dough in a large bowl (greased), cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place for about 2 hours, punching down in the interim.
7. Turn out dough onto floured surface.
Separate the piece of dough with the blessing if you make it.
8. Divide dough into 6-7 pieces, and shape into challah according to your favorite style.
(You can braid three strands, four strands, six strands - whatever!).
9. Let rise another 30 minutes or so.
10. Brush each loaf with beaten egg. Sprinkle with seeds.
11. Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes or until it sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
