Callah Bread (Sugar Free)
7 cups bread flour (+ more for dusting)
5 Tbs Stevia
4 yolks, slightly beaten
2 eggs, slightly beaten
5 ½ tbs butter, melted
1 ¼ cups water
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 tbs salt
2 ¾ tsp yeast
In a large bowl combine the eggs, egg yolks, water, applesauce, and melted butter.
In a separate bowl combine flour, stevia, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and add the yeast for last. Hand knead for about 1 minute until the ingredients are incorporated. The dough will be sticky.
Dust a flat surface and transfer the dough. Gently add flour as needed when you knead until the dough is firm. (About 2-3 minutes).
Lightly spray the large bowl, put the dough in it, cover it, and let it rest for about 1 hour bulk fermentation. Push down the air and refrigerate overnight. Push down the air once or twice.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven at 380F. Lightly dust a flat surface and divide the dough into 3 equal parts. Roll them lengthwise to form 3 thick strings. Entwine them to braid the bread and transfer it to a greased baking sheet. Let it rest for about 1 hour.
Bake for 40 minutes and remove from heat. Transfer the bread to a cooling rack. Enjoy it with your favorite sugar-free jam.
