STUFFING FLAVORED CHALLAH by Mandylicious
Save-a-Step Stuffing Challah
- 1 1/3 cup vegetable stock
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 4 egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4 ¼ cup high quality bread flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 2 teaspoons crushed thyme
- 1.5 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1.5 teaspoons dried sage
- 1.5 teaspoons parsley flakes
- 1 tablespoon instant yeast
- Paprika and crumbled rosemary (optional)
Add dry and wet ingredients to a bread machine in the order specified by the manufacturer. Set machine for “dough” cycle.
If not using a bread machine, combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, turn out on to a floured board and knead for 5 minutes. If sticky, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Allow to rise in a large bowl in a dark place, covered with plastic wrap or a towel for 1 ½ hours.
When the dough cycle is complete, remove dough from the bread machine or bowl, and divide into 6 equal portions. On a floured surface, roll three portions into long ropes, then carefully braid together, then place on a greased loaf pan or greased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough.
Cover with a towel and let rise for an additional 20-30 minutes in a draft-free place.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brush with egg wash and if desired, top with paprika and rosemary. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until golden.
