Happy Chanukah Bread Machine Challah

Jo Zimny


This is the first time I made Challah from start to finish in the bread maker. Last year I just made the dough. I left the yeast and eggs out over night to warm up and I think it made all the difference in how this rose up. I live at 5,000 feet and cut back on the yeast, and think I could have cut back even more. I will next time. Here's the recipe as written. I put my ingredients in the order recommended by the machine making sure the yeast and liquids DO NOT TOUCH ONE ANOTHER.

How to Make Happy Chanukah Bread Machine Challah


  1. Heat the water. I used my candy thermometer to make sure the temperature was correct.
  2. Add the ingredients in the order given. When you go to put the yeast in, make a tiny well in the flour and put the yeast in there.
  3. The settings I used were for a 2 lb. loaf. I used the basic bread setting with a medium crust.
  4. Once the bread is done remove it from the pan and cool completely on a wire rack before cutting. Slather with your favourite spread.
  5. Enjoy and Happy Chanukah!
