Introduction: Rainbow Challah

About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but I …

Pretty braided rainbow bread!

Step 1: Dough

Yeast Mixture:

1 1/4 c lukewarm water

4 tsp active dry yeast

1 tsp sugar

Sprinkle water with sugar followed with yeast and let bloom for 10 mins, stir


In a large bowl, pour 1/4 c cooking oil, 1/4 - 1/3 c sugar (depending how sweet you'd like your loaf to be), a tsp of salt, and 4 eggs, stir to combine

Add in 4 c of flour, stir

Pour in yeast mixture and add in another 1 c of flour, knead

Let dough stand to rise in warm place for about 45 mins

Step 2: Coloring the Dough

Once dough has risen, punch down and slice into 5 portions

Color per dough with one food color (gel food color only please). I use red, blue, orange, green and purple. The depth of the color is depending how you like it to be. Can be pastel or darker color.

Once dough are colored, let them rise again in warm place for 20-25 mins

Step 3: Baking the Bread

After 20-25 mins resting, roll each dough into ropes (as you can see my ropes are bumpy, to avoid that, cover dough before letting it rise and once risen, knead - if you aren't as lazy as me tho :))

Braid ropes and place it into a loaf pan (or you can just use regular baking sheet!)

Brush with an egg diluted in a little water, and sprinkle with poppy seeds (or not, as you wish)

Bake bread in preheated 350 F for 30-35 mins (should sound hollow when tap with a knife or finger)

Enjoy :)
