Tribes-A-Dozen Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread Mixes (**GIVEAWAY**)

 

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Voila! Hallah is everything you need to make traditional hallah bread in one box, minus an egg, some oil and honey.

These breads come in three varieties: Traditional, Whole Wheat (“Wholey Wheat”) and Spelt mix (“Simply Spelt”).

Voila Breads

Voila! Hallah egg bread mixes are all natural, and I appreciate that there are no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, and so on.  They are certified Kosher, and the whole grain wheat and spelt varieties are certified organic.

Traditional: Unbleached unenriched wheat flour, unbleached and enriched wheat flour (niacin, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid, malted barley flour), turbinado sugar, sea salt, and organic flavor.

Wholey Wheat: Organic whole grain wheat flour, brow sugar, turbinado sugar, sea salt, and organic flavor.

Spelt: Organic whole grain spelt flour, brow sugar, turbinado sugar, sea salt, and organic flavor.

The process for all three breads is the same, and the instructions on the box are very easy to follow and understand.  Each Voila! Hallah box comes with a packet of yeast and bread mix.  You will need to provide a few of your own supplies (such as egg, oil, and sugar), which are also clearly listed on the box.

It is important to note that Voila, Hallah! isn’t necessarily a simplified mix.  You are still going through all the steps to make the bread, including kneading the dough (and braiding it, if you decide to do so).  But it does take some of the guesswork out of your ingredients, especially when it comes to the yeast.  The pre-measured ingredients and the simple, clear instructions make working with the yeast easy.

Voila Hallah Bread

My kids had a lot of fun helping me mix the ingredients together in our mixing bowl, although there is a bit of waiting involved while the dough rises. Luckily, it turns out it’s just enough time for an Arthur episode, so it passed quickly.

For the Traditional mix came the most challenging part of any hallah: the braiding.  If you can braid hair, you can most likely braid a hallah, and the braid is what gives the bread its distinct and beautiful shape.  After that, it’s in the oven, and you’ve got your hallah.

Voila Hallah Bread

I have made hallah before, and the bread I made with Voila, Hallah! turned out similar to those earlier attempts: a little denser and more of a pretzel consistency than the kind of hallah you would buy in a bakery.  This is almost certainly because of something I’m doing, but it goes to show that Voila, Hallah! is a shortcut to hallah, but not a magic wand that does all the work for you.

Tribes-a-Dozen has some great tips on their website to help you create just the right Hallah bread, so don’t feel intimidated by attempting your own bread-making!

Don’t get intimidated or give up on it too easily. It’s just you and the dough. It doesn’t have to be perfect the first time, nor at any time. If you make mistakes, it’s OK. Learn from them and you will only become a more resourceful homebaker. With practice, ease will follow, and, with it — I hope — you will experience the joy of baking Hallah at home.

In the end, our attempt with the Traditional mix might not have made perfect hallah bread, but it did make some perfectly awesome French toast a few days later!

Voila Hallah Bread

You can make a full-sized loaf, two smaller loaves, or even rolls will your bread mixes.  We enjoyed our spelt and whole wheat breads for every day uses, mostly for sandwiches or even just buttered bread.  The spelt has more of a distinct taste out of the three –  somewhat of a nutty flavor.  The Traditional mix is something I will probably keep on hand for something like Rosh Hashanah.

Voila, Hallah! is a great way to have all the ingredients for hallah on hand and ready to bake at a moment’s notice.  You can easily keep a few boxes in your pantry for when you decide to make a batch of this delicious bread!
