Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread
Here is how it went.
I gathered up all of my ingredients first. You notice that there was not a big tub of flour there....right?
Instead there is a box of Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread mix. It has the yeast in one package and the special flour in another. Sure did help where I did not have to measure or buy a flour I do not normally have on hand either. I wanted to make Hallah bread with Easter coming up. But knowing that I never had I thought I had better do a test run first.
Here is my flour mix with the yeast in the middle. I then added my warm water. It sat for about 5 minutes and started bubbling up.
Then I measured my eggs, oil and honey to add in.
Easy enough to just pour in this way.
Turn the machine on and let the bread hook do all the work.
I put out a piece of saran wrap that I oiled down. Turned out the dough when it was through mixing. Oiled it and patted it into a round and let it rise.
When that was done, I separated it into three sections. Then I made each section into a long roll. I made a braid out of it then. I could had done this into a six braid but I am not too sure of my braiding skills to try to tell the truth.
I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.
It said to put egg white on the top and I thought this was the easy way. Hey, why waste the yokes? I use egg whites for most of my cooking now so I normally have a carton on hand like this.
Not too shabby for me!
Oh now for the taste test with some butter on top. Let me also tell you this is the FIRST bread I have had in 3 months since my surgery.
Heaven sent. I have never had Hallah bread before. This is lightly sweet and has a soft center with a nice crust on the outside. And was really easy to make. Oh my goodness, I now want to eat the whole loaf. It seems I will be visiting The Other Mother to share so I can save my tummy.
Now you do not have to give this away. As a matter of fact you can win the same three boxes all for yourself! Or pick them up at your local Walmart.
