Sweet yeast braid with a traditional weave

We broke the classic recipe a bit and baked a challah with a "festive" flavor.

Chałka was supposed to be an idea for Christmas Eve breakfast, but the test baking tasted so good that she has already become the queen of... dinner three times ;-)


550g of fine flour

300ml milk

50g butter

30g fresh yeast

50g sugar

1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

100 g of candied orange peel

a pinch of salt

Ingredients for the crumble

50g flour

25g sugar

30g butter

1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder


1 egg, beaten to grease the cupcake


Heat the milk, butter and sugar slightly (to 37 ° C) and dissolve the yeast in the warm solution.

Sift the flour into a bowl with cinnamon, make a hollow in which we pour our milk with yeast and sugar.

Add the orange zest, a pinch of salt and knead gently. Cover with a cloth to rise until it doubles in volume (about 1 hour).

During this time, knead the crumble ingredients until lumpy and set aside in the fridge.

When the dough has risen, gently knead it again and divide it into three equal parts. Form a roll from each of them and weave a braid. Place on a baking tray covered with baking paper, cover with a cloth and leave to rise for about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C.

Sprinkle the risen challah with beaten egg, sprinkle generously with crumble and bake in a preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes.

If by some miracle you have a piece on the next day, you can coat the slices of dry challah in an egg mixed with milk and fry in oil or butter in a pan. Such an idea, e.g. for breakfast with a glass of milk, or coffee or drinking yoghurt, or... :-)
