Challa Bread Braids


From: My friend, Sarah Valente.

Ingredients:

3.5 cups warm water
4 tsp yeast
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup melted butter
6 eggs
6+ cups flour

How to:  

Combine yeast and warm water. Add the sugar.  It should bubble right away. Add the rest of the ingredients in order, mixing each ingredient in thoroughly as you go. When the dough is formed but not too sticky (add more flour if necessary), allow it to rise for 30 min. Then form into 4 equal parts for the loaves.  Break each 1/4th into 3 equal parts to braid into a loaf.  Then bake for 20-25 minutes at 360°F.
