CHALLAH

8-9 cups flour
3/4-1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
1-2 oz (50 gr) yeast
2 1/2 cups lukewarm water
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
5 eggs

Mix together 2 1/2 cups flour with sugar, salt yeast (no need to
dissolve first), water and oil. Mix in 4 eggs. Beat in 1 1/2 cups
flour very well. Add 4-5 cups flour until a very soft dough is
formed. Add raisins (optional). Knead for 10 to 15 minutes. Let
rise 1-2 hours, or refrigerate overnight and then let warm to room
temperature for 1-2 hours.

Make balls, roll them into ropes and braid. Let rise covered for
1/2 - 1 hour. Make an egg wash by beating the remaining egg.
Brush on the challah. Bake in a preheated oven at 325 degrees F
(150 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Apply the egg wash once more and
bake another 30 minutes at 350 F (175 C).

Makes 4 medium sized challahs.
