Delicious Home Made Challah Bread Recipe 2


If you’ve been searching for the most delicious home made challah bread recipe, look no more! 

I honestly cannot remember the last time I didn’t make Challah for Shabbat. In fact, last Friday morning I was so exhausted that I asked Benji to add store bought challah to his Friday morning shopping list, for the first time in YEARS.

About three hours before shabbat came in, I decided that I just can’t do it. It’s such a delicious home made challah bread recipe , it wont take me very long, and everyone will be super happy to have my yummy, mushy baked goods, as opposed to the store bought errrr…. Not as good as mine…

I have used several different bread recipes over the years, until about five years ago. We were invited for Friday night dinner by my friend Tziona, and that’s when the decision was made- this was my new favorite recipe! Thanks Tziona!

Since I have been using this for years, I have made some minor changes to make it perfect for my family’s taste buds 🙂

Add these items to your shopping list and make sure that you have the few ingredients necessary for the challah dough.

After. The challah is ready for braiding!

Once your dough is ready, set your oven to 1850 Celsius.

Divide the bread dough into four sections. If you want larger challahs, you can divide into two sections.

I used two sections, and I’m using the other half for another baked good recipe (coming up soon).

Braid each challah, cover, and set aside while you make the cookie crumble topping.

For the Crumble:

  • 50 grams margarine semi melted
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup of sugar

 

Mix ingredients into crumble. You may have to add more flour if it’s not “crumbly” enough. You’ll have leftovers, you can put it in your freezer.

I used the cookie crumble on one of my challot, and sunflower seeds on the second one.

Bake on 1850 C for about 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and underneath.
