Best Challah Recipe EVER!!!!!

Submitted by: SHRINK71

Introduction

I use a heavy duty mixer to do the kneading (has a 7 pound flour capacity.) If you don't have one of these the dough will be very difficult to work with unless you add more flour (which will change the texture of the finished product a bit.)

Ingredients

    5 pounds + 2 cups King Arthur bread flour (best for bread!)
    1/4 cup yeast
    8 eggs
    2 cups (plus 1 tbsp.) sugar
    2 cups oil
    4 cups warm water
    2 large egg yolks.

Directions

Combine warm water, yeast, & 1 tbsp. sugar. Let sit until bubbly (about 5 minutes.)
Add other ingredients (except extra egg yolks) & knead for 15 minutes. Let rise in very large bowl either overnight in fridge or in warm spot on counter until the dough doubles in size (about 2 hours.)
Pound down the dough & separate out a small piece for the "taking of Challah." Shape into Challahs. Let rise for another hour.
Brush with two beaten egg yolks & then bake at 350 until golden brown. Baking time depends on the size of the challahs you are making.
***Hint: lower the temperature of the oven to 330 for larger challahs to allow for more even baking.
