Brace yourself for an amazing recipe... Trust me--YOU are going to want to HUG me!!
Good Luck!!!

Cousin Ahuva’s Spectacular Spelt Challah
• 4 tbsp yeast

• 2 cups warm water

• a bit of honey.


• let it dissolve and set aside


Get a second bowl…

• 2 cups water

• 3/4 cup honey or agave nectar - I started using agave nectar - low on the glicymic index and also makes a silkier dough!

• 6 eggs

• 1/2 cup oil
• 2 tbsp. salt

• 1 cup flax meal - opt. but great for fiber

Now add yeast mixture and then add the flour - 5 lbs. white spelt plus a bit more.

knead and let it rise at least 1 hour.

Shape and let rise 1/2 hour and bake at 350 for 1/2 hour!

I'm going to try this recipe.

Do any of these recipes make the challah less crumby? I hate that there's way more crumbs than with wheat challah.

This recipe is great, delicious, soft, not crumbly and doesn't get too dry once you cut it. Definitely a winner and a keeper in this house.

I baked loaves of bread for my son for breakfast and will report how he likes 'em.

I used lite spelt and it was great. I've done whole spelt recipes in the past and I think they're more or less the same, though obviously the whole is a bit heavier.

I have to give a HUGE thumbs up for this recipe. It's the best so far and barely crumbles (which is an issue with spelt that I've always had).

I took a part of the dough and mixed some flavor infused oil (Zeta basil and garlic) once it was fully risen. It was really divine.

I think so. I've used lite and/or white. I've made many spelt recipes with just whole and although it's a bit heavier or more crumbly, they were fine.

I don't remember if I did or didn't get a response to that question, but I haven't made challos in a while. IY"H once my girls give me a bit of a longer break in the day, I hope to resume.

So you don't know if it's dry yeast or not? I tried it with dry yeast-it actually came out pretty good, but the challos barely grew-and the braids spread so I ended up with a bread loaf rather than a braided challah.

Did you let it rise too much? It needs to rise just as much as written. Otherwise it falls.
