Baking Challah for the Holidays with Beth Smith.
Join Beth Smith as she shows you how to make and braid a round challah. She will share her secrets for making delicious bread.

To work along with Beth, which she hopes you will do, you will need to have:

  • Flour, preferably bread flour, but all purpose will work, too – do not use self-rising flour
  • Yeast – 1 packet – DO NOT OPEN YEAST BEFORE THE CLASS!
  • Sugar
  • Salt, preferably coarse/Kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • Vegetable oil
  • Warm water
  • A large cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper or silpat or foil
  • Tools 
    • a 1-cup dry measuring cup
    • a 1-cup liquid measuring cup
    • measuring spoons (tablespoon, teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon)
    • plastic wrap
    • a dish towel
    • a large bowl
    • electric mixer with dough hook – If you don’t have a mixer with a dough hook, you can use a second large bowl and a large spoon.

The use of headphones significantly reduces the background noise when using Zoom and allows us to be more interactive.
