Hi Amanda,Put the ingredients into a bowl in the same order as the reipce and let them stand at room temperature for about 35 minutes.Mix them together into a smooth dough and knead the dough for a minimum of ten minutes. It should become smooth and elastic.Put the dough into a bowl and cover it with a warm, wet, teatowel and let it rise in a warm place for about one hour or until it has doubled inside, then just follow the reipce above. It's how we used to make the Challah pre-breadmaker, I must admit the long kneading got to me!I hope this all makes sense, please let me know if anything is unclear!Miri
