Bag It – Challah
March 31, 2017 May 5, 2021
When I saw this recipe on the Jewlish blog (couldn’t resist – the name of the blog is just too cute!) I had to try it. After all, who wouldn’t want to throw (literally) ingredients into a bag and have it turn out the softest, most flavorful bread.
I was skeptical I must admit. How can a bunch of ingredients sitting in a bag for a couple of hours turn out to be bread? Well, you are about to find out!
It starts by dumping ingredients into a ziplock bag and letting it sit for awhile.
Then putting the bag into a container with warm water. After that, the dough bag sits on the counter for a bit longer.
When finished with the proofing and rising steps, dump on the counter and braid.The dough was so soft. Even at this point I was somewhat unsure if this bread would turn out.
Brushing with egg wash and sprinkling sesame seeds completes the top of the bread and readies it for baking.
Finished bread looks great and did not disappoint in taste. I’d never made Challah before so didn’t know what to expect. This was a delightful surprise, with barely any effort.
