Easy No Kneading Sweet Challah Bread Recipe And Giveaway

Tribes - A - Dozen  sent me three all natural, kosher, egg bread mixes to review. Guess what, you may enter to win three boxes of bread mix too!  I love their easy prep, less mess, no stress approach to great homemade bread. They sent me their Traditional, Wholey Wheat, and Simply Spelt varieties. Today I baked up the Simply Spelt to share with you all. Every one of their mixes is made with love, in an environmentally friendly facility.  Weather you spell it Challah or Hallah, it's referring to a classic egg and yeast bread, traditionally braided before being baked.

  Challah bread is typically made in honor of the Jewish Sabbath. The kind of bread our grandmother's made, with the crispy crust, and chewy middle, that make the entire house smell amazing. Yes the kind of bread that makes your soul feel warm and cozy. Tribes - A - Dozen's bread mixes keep tradition in mind, however I gave it a little twist today. I decided to bake my Challah bread in a bundt pan, and dropped the dough in balls, making it a pull apart bread. Instead of topping with seeds, I topped it with a little brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and honey, because I was in the mood for something a little sweet.

Easy No Kneading Challah Bread With Pumpkin Pie Spice, Brown Sugar, N' Honey
Makes 10 Servings


1 box of Tribes - A - Dozen  Voila! Hallah Simply Spelt Bread Mix
1/2 cup of warm water
1 large egg, plus 1 yolk (room temperature) 
Note: I used  instead, 1/4 cup of cholesterol free egg product, plus 1/8 cup more 
3 Tbs of Vegetable Oil ( I used and prefer Canola Oil)
2 Tbs Honey
Optional Topping : 1 Tbs Sesame or Poppy Seeds
Note:  I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, and 2 tsp brown sugar instead of seeds


I followed the easy no knead directions on the box of bread mix, however I made a few changes to my ingredients. I used cholesterol free egg product, because it's what I had on hand. I always use canola oil, instead of vegetable oil, for health reasons. When it calls for greasing bowl, I used a non stick butter flavored spray. Instead of braiding bread, I dropped it in rounded tablespoons into a bundt pan.  I also skipped the egg wash prior to baking, and simply sprayed top of dough with my non stick butter flavored spray, before sprinkling it with brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.  Before serving, I drizzled the bread with just a bit more honey! It will easily pull apart for serving.

I served our yummy bread on my Temptations cookware.
