Wholesome but still very tasty and soft challah. So delicious you'll forget it's healthy!
- 3 lbs. Whole wheat flour -
- 2 lbs. White flour -
- 3 Tbsp. salt -
- 1 cup oil -
- 1 cup honey -
- 5 cups warm water -
- 7 tsp. yeast -
Combine the water, oil, honey and yeast in a large bowl, mixing gently. Let it rest till it begins to bubble, about 10 minutes. While the yeast is resting combine the flours and salt in a different bowl. Once there is a layer of bubbles add the flour mixture and knead well.
Cover with saran wrap and a damp cloth and let rise for 2 hours in a warm area. After it has doubled in size shape your challahs. Bake at 265 for 20 minutes and then turn up the oven to 350 for another 25 minutes.
Note: If you only want to use one bowl add the flour straight into the yeast mixture once the bubbles have formed.
