Q. I’d love to have my family get used to whole wheat challahs but they won’t even look at anything that’s not pure white. Any ideas?
A. Easy does it! Start by substituting only 1 cup of flour with whole wheat and see how your family “swallows” it. If they don’t notice, gradually continue adding more whole wheat flour until slowly but surely you’ll be making 100% whole wheat challahs! Just remember to increase the amount of water in proportion to the whole wheat fl our
- whole wheat flour - 2 1/2 lbs
- bleached all purpose flour - 2 1/2 lbs
- dry yeast - 2 tbsp
- salt - 2 tbsp
- canola oil - 1 cup
- honey - 1/2 cup
- lukewarm water - 5 cups
Mix, rise, braid and bake challahs as noted in this article.
