This past weekend, I had the pleasure of spending Shabbes with my rebbe and mentor, R’ Michael Skobac  and his charming wife, Chashi.
R’ Skobac is Master Po to my Grasshopper.
Shabbes dinner featured a spelt/kamut challah that was out of this world!
He was kind enough to share the recipe with me… and here it is!
R’ Skobac’s Healthy Challah for Dummies (and those short on time):
- 3.5 cups of spelt flour
- 1/2 cup of kamut flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups water
- 2 Tablespoons oil
- 1.5 tablespoons of honey
Mix ingredients well into a dough. Divide in two and shape into round loaves.
Bake both loaves on a cookie sheet (covered in parchment paper) @ 350F for 40 minutes.
Check to make sure they’re done and ENJOY!
Simple. Fast. And for those intimidated by baking anything more complicated that muffins or banana bread, a really great way to feel like you know what you’re doing.
 Rabbi Michael Skobac – one of the world’s foremost authorities on Missionaries and Cults – is the Director of Education and Counselling of Jews for Judaism (Canada). He was educated at Northwestern University and Yeshiva University and has been involved in Jewish education and outreach work since 1975. (He and I also sit together at our little shtiebl, Congregation Bais Dov Yosef in Toronto [aka The Holy Strudel King]).
