1 1/4 c water
2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
5 tbsp honey
3 eggs + 1 egg for wash
1/2 c vegetable oil
3 c white flour
2 1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/2 c wheat germ
2 1/2 tsp salt
Don't skip out on the wheat gluten/wheat germ.
I think it makes a big difference and it contains lots of protein!
Follow the recipe for the Basic Challah Recipe #1. I added the extra 2 tablespoons of honey with the eggs, but I don't think it really matters all that much. Make sure to mix the flours and salt together dry otherwise you'll end of up with clumps. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. I found this rose SLOWER than white flour for some reason, but it could have been the house temperature.
The Hazz is a lot stronger than me for punching out the air.
The second Challah we made this week was Cinnamon Wheat. (same dough).
