Whenever I do this challah recipe and I have guests, they don't realize its whole wheat and they go crazy when I tell them!! worth to try it out!!
- 12 cups whole wheat flour -
- 4 cups white flour -
- 4 eggs (1 more for brushing) -
- 1 cup sugar -
- 1 cup oil -
- 6 tbsp dry yeast -
- 1 cup warm water -
- 4 cups water (i never had to use all the 4 cups) -
- 4 tbsp salt -
In a cup add the yeast to the warm water and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar. Let rise!! In the meantime put in mixing bowl the sugar, eggs, oil and salt. Add the flour on top of the wet ingredients and make a whole in the middle. Once the yeast has risen pour in the whole in the flour and cover with flour. Let rise again! Start mixing and add slowly the 4 cups of water until it forms a nice and not dry dough.
Let dough rise in a warm place until its doubled. Form challahs, brush with egg, sprinkle sesame seeds over it and bake!! Voila!!
