Bread Machine Challah, Overnight (P, TNT)
Source: An Israeli friend
Yield: 1 large or 2 medium loaves

1 egg yolk, save white to glaze challah
1 whole egg
1 cup water
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour
2-1/4 tsp. yeast
2 tsp. salt

Pre-heat oven to 325F or when you're ready to bake.

Put ingredients (in order given, making sure the salt and yeast don't come into direct contact) into machine. Set on dough setting. Take out and shape. Let rise 45 minutes (or put in fridge overnight at this point).

Glaze challah with egg white. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes (loaf should be golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.)

Poster's Notes:
For the egg, I use the equivalent egg substitute. I add a little honey to the glaze.

I have a great bread machine challah recipe. It isn't particularly fast, but if you plan it correctly, you can make the dough one day, put it in the refrigerator overnight, and bake it when you are ready the next day. No rush on Shabbat! An Israeli friend gave me this recipe, and now Shabbat just isn't Shabbat without this challah. The smell is heavenly.
