Directions:
Directions:
Dough:- Take Challah without a Bracha, use dough hook
Preheat oven to 350. Grease pans. Mix yeast with warm water and a pinch of sugar, let stand until foamy. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in mixing bowl (use dough hook on Bosch mixer- NOT Challah piece). Add in the yeast and knead until dough is formed.
Let rise for 1 hour. Roll out ½ inch thick. Mix filling ingredients together. Smear oil over dough and pour filling on top. (the more, the better).
Roll dough up, jelly roll style. To make 3 large kokosh cakes- divide dough into 3 parts, do as written above, and place on greased cookie sheet. To make small individual cakes, roll out smaller pieces and place in loaf pans. Always put seam side down so it does not open while baking.
When using loaf pans, you don’t need more than one strip (jelly roll) in each pan. Do not make a long strip and fold in half. It will expand in oven.
Brush top of rolls with beaten egg. Mix crumb ingredients and sprinkle on top. Bake for 45 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
Yields approximately 9 loaf pans
