Challah Bread

I got this recipe off of the Sisters Cafe food blog - they have TONS of great recipes! I love homemade bread - and this is such a good one...

Challah Bread... Sisters Cafe
3 T
2 cups warm water
½ c. sugar
1 T salt
½ c. canola oil
7-8 c. flour
4 or 5 large eggs

Add water to mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast over water. Then sprinkle sugar, then salt. Let proof. Add oil and 3 cups of flour. Mix together. Add eggs. Mix well. Then add 4 cups of flour. Mix. Add more flour as needed – usually 1 ½ to 2 cups more. Hand knead if mixer didn’t knead enough. Let rise at least 1 hour. Separate into 3 large pieces or 36 small rolls. Divide each piece into three more pieces. Roll into snakes and braid together. Let rise for about 1-2 hours or until almost double in size. Then brush with egg wash (1 egg mixed with 1 Tb water) over bread. Sprinkle with poppy seeds or sesame seeds if you want.

Bake at 350° until done (16-18 minutes). Makes 3 loaves
