Ruthie’s Challah

A Sabbath Favorite!

A Sabbath Favorite!

  • 5+ cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbs yeast
  • 1 Tbs salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4-1/2 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 3 eggs, beaten

Stir 3 cups of flour, yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add remaining ingredients. Mix, adding flour as needed. When the dough is difficult to stir, start kneading. Continue for 8 minutes, adding flour (or greasing hands with olive oil) as needed to keep the dough from sticking.

Place the dough in an oiled bowl. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour. Shape the flattened dough into into 2 loaves. (I like to braid mine)

Let rise for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350. Brush the challah with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic and salt. Bake for 25-30 minutes (I do 19 minutes in a convection oven). Serve warm or cooled. Enjoy! 🙂
