Solar Challah Bread

Solar Challah Bread

For this bread I used a regular cardboard/foil oven and reflectors of the type of María Telkes.
We need:
3 eggs
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour (some more if needed)
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
1/4 cup of sugar
1 spoon of honey
1 teaspoon of salt
1 spoon bread yeast
1 extra spoon of sugar
1/4 cup warm water
We mix the yeast with the 1 spoon of sugar and warm water and let it react.
In the meanwhile we start mixing all the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl and knead until easy to handle
We then separate the dough in three parts to form 3 long, even strands. To start the braid pinch together the three strands and braid carefully. Create a braid and then round it into a "garland" unite both ends and place in a metal tray. Place it in the sun for 2 to 3 hours of clear lovely sun. Then enjoy!
This bread is fantastic as a daily bread at breakfast or tea time with solar jelly... (orange solar jelly is my favorite) Please enjoy!


This looks and sounds like a great bread recipe, and even quite kosher if I understand correctly.

Thank you for sharing this unique solar cooking recipe.
