Gluten-Free New England’s Bread Machine Challah Recipe
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2-3 T sugar
  • 2 T honey or agave syrup (we add a little more because we like our challah sweet. If you do add significantly more, increase salt by 1/4 teaspoon as well)
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 3/4 cups GF flour (We used King Arthur)
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 2 1/4 t. bread machine yeast
  • 1 egg beaten

  1. Add warm water, eggs, oil, sugar, and honey to bread machine pan.
  2. Add in GF flour, corn starch, and salt.
  3. Dig a small, shallow hole in the flour and add in the yeast.
  4. Turn the machine to the dough setting, and start.
  5. Scrape down the sides as the process begins, adding in water or extra GF flour as needed.
  6. When the dough is done, put it on a floured surface. Divide it into 2 halves. Take each half and split it into 3 long ropes. Braid each half, pressing the dough together as you go. Do your best – it can get crumbly! (Can form them into little round challahs too.)
  7. Carefully place the challahs on a greased baking sheet.
  8. Cover and let rise again for about 20-30 mins.
  9. Gently brush the challahs with the beaten egg and place them in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes.
  10. Enjoy! (The freeze well too)
