Honey Raisin Challah

This Honey Raisin Challah would be a delicious addition to your Yom Kippur Break Fast spread. 

This recipe is different in that you add the honey and raisins BEFORE the first rise. 

Ingredients for dough (for 1 challah):

  • The Challah Box
  • ⅓ cup raisins
  • ⅓ cup honey 


  1. Follow instructions per The Challah Box steps 1-4. 
  2. Before kneading, separate out 1 pound of dough and place in a separate bowl.
  3. Add ⅓ cup raisins and ⅓ cup honey to the 1 pound of dough. Mix and then add flour to form a workable dough. Knead and continue to follow The Challah Box instructions, keeping your classic dough and your honey raisin dough separate throughout. 
  4. For braiding, we recommend trying a round basketweave or a turban twist for your Rosh Hashanah table.
