Making Disney recipes at home is one of our favorite ways to keep the magic going when we’re not in the parks!
We recently saw three deliciously evil recipes inspired by Disney villains, a way to recreate ‘Ohana’s famous bread pudding, and there’s over 70 sweet desserts in this Disney Princess inspired cookbook! These delicious eats just keep coming and coming, and we just got a NEW recipe from an underrated Disney character!
Challah is a type of bread eaten at Jewish holidays and religious occasions! You’ve most likely seen the common “braided” version.
The recipe has a pretty simple list of ingredients, you probably already have most of them in your kitchen!
To make the bread, you start by activating your yeast. Then you combine your flour, sugar, and salt separately.
Add your eggs, egg yolk, and oil to the center of your flour mixture and whisk it all together! Then, combine your flour and egg mixture with the yeast mixture.
After you get a dough that is tough, it’s time to start kneading! Make sure you knead on a floured surface so the dough doesn’t stick. You should know when the dough is ready because it will be smooth and hold its shape. Then, it’s time for some patience (which is so hard when you just want to eat some fresh bread!). Put the dough in a covered, oiled bowl and leave it somewhere warm for to rise.
After 2 hours, the dough should have doubled in size, which means you can start forming your loaf! Divide your dough into 3 equal portions and roll each of those into a long rope. Then you’re going to braid the ropes, just like you would braid hair!
Don’t forget to squeeze together the ends of the loaf so the ropes don’t come apart. Now, we have to let the dough rise again! Put the loaf on baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle it with flour. This rise will only take about 1 hour, until the dough puffs up.
Now, we finally get to bake our beautiful bread! Brush your egg wash ALL over the dough and place it into a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Don’t forget to rotate the bread halfway through that baking time! Take it out of the oven when it’s a deep brown color and the temperature reads 190 degrees in the middle of the loaf.
After the bread cools, it’s time to enjoy!! Share it with friends and family or keep all that goodness for yourself (like Kuzco would probably do!). We can’t wait to try out this recipe on our own! Stay tuned to DFB for more delicious Disney recipes.
