I decided to wade into the video world. On Saturday Leanne was making some delicious soup for our dinner and I decided challah bread would go great with it.
So my first video is on how to braid a 6 braid challah loaf. In the video I do not show how to make the bread itself. (if you'd like a bread making video.. let me know.. ;)
I've posted the recipe below so you can make this bread as well.
I enjoyed making the video and would like to do more of them, if anyone would be interested. If you have something you would like to see me do a video on, please let me know!
I'm new at this video making thingy and have a lot to learn.. so excuse all the little mistakes.. Ha, ha, ha... ~smile~
But for now.. here is my first video..
Challah - Makes 3 Loaves
1/3 cup warm water
2 T yeast
1 ½ cups warm water
¼ cup butter
¼ cup olive oil
1 T salt
½ cup sugar
7 to 9 cups flour (white, or half white/half wheat)
In a small measuring cup combine the 1/3 cup warm water and 2T yeast. Let that sit to foam up a little. In a large mixer bowl combine 1 ½ cups warm water, butter, olive oil, salt and sugar. Mix for a few minutes. Add eggs and mix well. Add yeast and water mixture.
Add flour starting with the smallest measurements. Mix until well combined. Add more flour (a little at a time) if needed so there is no dough sticking to the sides of mixer bowl and the dough is not sticky, but not too stiff.
Knead for 7 to 10 minutes in a Kitchen Aid or 4 to 5 minutes in a Bosch. Let the dough rise until doubled in bulk, about 45 minutes to an hour.
Mix dough down again, and let rise a second time.
Then mix it down again and divided dough into 3 pieces. Braid each piece, put on a jelly roll pan, cover and let rise until doubled in size.
When ready, bake bread at 350 for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
