Water Challah


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 5 pounds high gluten flour
  • 11/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 4.5 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 5 cups of water, divided
  • drop of oil


Grease pans, mix together yeast, 11/2 tablespoons sugar and 1 cup warm water.  Let sit for 5-10 minutes.  Add remaining water, sugar, oil, salt and flour to the yeast mixture.  Mix for 12 minutes, or knead by hand.

Place dough in a large bowl, cover with a drop of oil and cover.  Let rise for 1 hour.

Form 6-7 medium large challahs.  Let rise for another 30 minutes.

Preaheat oven to 350; baked 30-40 minutes. *

I bake at 325 for the same times as we like the challah a little moister.

  1. Looking for a sugar Free Water Challah – Doc says I should substitute Truvia/Stevia for Sugar – I tried and Challah comes out very tough vs the light and fluffy normal texture – any ideas on how to compensate ???

    • I would just start making other kinds of breads for Shabbat and save challah for the holidays, as long as you make enough and take Challah it is still a mitzvah.
