So I’m no bread expert, but I’ve used this challah recipe a half dozen times, always with no issue/great success.
The dough has been sitting abou 2.5 hrs and has definitely not doubled. Pictured attached.
Thoughts? What could I have done wrong? I checked the yeast packs- it says they are good through June 2021. Should I just keep waiting??
It’s a recipe with 8 cups of flour that makes 2 loaves.
Edit: 3 hour rise.. nothing seemed to be happening. I decided to go ahead and bake because otherwise I’d be throwing it out... I may be doing that regardless :(
The braids definitely don’t look right- I referenced photos I took the first time I made this recipe. Dough is not soft and was extremely tough when I went into it with the bench scraped to form sections. Any insight appreciated.
