From beautiful plaited challah to chewy homemade bagels, find Jewish bread recipes that can be lovingly and easily made at home. We have Jewish breads and challah for the bread machine, too.
This recipe will make enough dough for two challah plaits. This means you can serve one and freeze the other! Sometimes I add a handful of raisins, currants or dried cranberries to the dough.
This recipe comes from my mother-in-law and she always made them for Passover to help cub our cravings for bread. They are delicious!
These little bread rings, Jewish in origin, are delicious teamed with savoury fillings such as smoked salmon and a soft cheese, or egg and salad. The double cooking method – first by briefly poaching in boiling water, then baking – gives bagels their unique soft crumb and slightly chewy crust.
My Shabbat Challah is something out of this world. I made it up on my own, because the ones I tasted, I just didn't like. Try it you will love it!! This can make 6 regular sized loaves, or two large plaited loaves.
The trick is to boil before baking! This makes an excellent batch of plain bagels that you can enhance with sesame seeds or poppy seeds.
