    PainterCook's Note:

    This is a great recipe from Father Dominic's (on PBS) cookbook "Breaking Bread." Using the bread machine makes it really easy, and it is so beautiful it makes a thoughtful present for a sick friend or a welcome addition to a potluck.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Add water, oil, 1 egg, vanilla, salt, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and yeast to bread machine. Select DOUGH/MANUAL cycle.
    2. 2
      When cycle is complete, remove dough from machine to a lightly floured surface. If necessary, knead in enough flour to make dough easy to handle.
    3. 3
      Divide dough into three equal portions, and roll each piece to a 24" rope. Braid ropes together, tucking ends underneath, on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise one hour (or until doubled in size), in a warm, draft free area. (I put a baking dish of hot water in the very bottom of my oven and then lay the baking sheet with the dough on the middle rack and close the door.).
    4. 4
      Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds.
    5. 5
      Bake in preheated oven (375 degrees) for 30-35 minutes. (Check at 30!) Remove from baking sheet and allow to cool on a wire rack.

      This was really good! First time making challah (third attempt at making bread in general). <br/>My bread machine didn't mix all the ingredients, though, and it still turned out really well.<br/>Very easy and tasted great.

      This was VERY easy to make and had a GREAT taste & texture. I've made it often with great results every time. Thanks for sharing.

      I've never had challah before, but I was looking for new breadmaker recipes and thought this was pretty. I did a practice run today and it turned out gorgeous! I wanted to bake it on my pizza stone, so I pulled the braided dough into a ring before rising. The texture is perfect and, although my husband thought it needed a little more sweetness, I think the flavor is ideal for serving with a meal. I have a new contribution for our Thanksgiving dinner next week!
