[Virtual Challah Lesson] Kneading the dough (with the mixer)

Remove the plastic wrap once the dough absorbs the flour, before it starts to become a cohesive ball.

After it forms a dough, let it rest for about 10 minutes before kneading in earnest.

(Save that plastic wrap, though. It will come in handy.)

If it is the right consistency, you will see the dough ball clean the sides of the mixer bowl.

Even with the mixer, some hand kneading really improves the dough's texture

While the dough rests, prepare the greased rising bowl and the pans for baking
