Ev’s Challah (from Gertie and Max Brodsky)
½ c.oil 2 c. warm water
1/3 c. sugar 1 T. salt (I use less)
4 pkg. yeast (3 T.)* 3 eggs
1 c. + 8 c. flour
* I use a little less yeast - maybe 2 T,
Oven 350. Mix all ingredients except the bulk of the flour with a dough hook. Let sit a few minutes. Mix in the rest of the flour. Knead. Let rise until doubled in a oiled bowl. Punch down and let rise again. Shape into 9 balls, and roll them in logs. Braid them into 3 loaves and put into greased cookie sheet. Let rise again. Bake for about 30 – 40 minutes.
