Whole Spelt Challah
(Can use a Bread machine for mixing, kneading, and rising ONLY)
***Adapted from challah recipe in the Kosher by Design cookbook on page 16***
In bread machine pan, put in wet ingredients first:
1 and 2/3 cups warm/hottish water
2 and 1/2 eggs (or a little less than 1 cup egg substitute)
A little over 1/2 cup canola oil
Put in dry ingredients next (except for yeast):
6 1/2 cups whole spelt flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 and 1/2 tsp salt
Make a shallow well in the dry ingredients and put in 2 packages of rapid rise yeast.
Turn on your bread machine and set it to the Dough/Pasta (1 and 1/2 hour) cycle where it mixes, kneads, and lets your dough rise.
Shape the challahs (makes 4 small challahs) and let them rise for 30 minutes.
Baste them with egg and bake for 30 minutes on 350.
