And now, my PERSONAL Challah recipe!

Hawaiian Sweet Challah

1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup mashed potato
2 Tbsp sugar
1 package (2 1/2 teaspoons) active dry yeast
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 c butter
3 large eggs, beaten
3/4 cup sugar
4- 4 1/2 cups flour

In a large bowl, mix together the water, mashed potatos, sugar, and the yeast. Set aside once mixed to proof for five minutes.

In a small saucepan, heat your milk, salt, and butter over low heat until the butter is completely melted.

Cool mixture to lukewarm and whisk in eggs (Keep aside one tablespoon of the eggs for the eggwash!).

Add milk-egg mixture to the potatoes and yeast. Stir well.

Add 3/4 cup sugar and enough of the 4 1/2 cups flour to make a workable dough.

Knead for a few minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic.

Place dough in oiled bowl, turn once and cover loosely with plastic wrap and a light, clean dishtowel.

Let it rise for an hour, or until doubled in size.

Punch down the dough before cutting into 8 thick strands.

Braid into Challah loaf before covering over and letting rise until doubled in size.

Give it a LIGHT egg wash (1 tablespoon egg. No garlic on this one, as it’ll distract from the sweet taste.)

Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes, or until golden brown.

More food to come! Remember the stream’s on and requests or wants to join the Shabbat Blo can be AIMed to ‘RenegadeKosher’! Don’t forget to sponsor me! See you in 30! Shalom and Good Cooking!
