Eggless Challah

In keeping with the Shabbos theme of my previous post, I thought I'd post my recipe for eggless challah. This is traditionally a braided bread ( the most I can handle is 4 strands- but a shout out to readers with superior manual dexterity). Most challah recipes call for eggs in the bread and for a glaze (egg "wash"). I omit the eggs in the dough and leave the braided loaves unglazed. Try it, you'll never miss the eggs!
Eggless Challah (rich tasting water challah)
5 Tbsp dry active yeast (like Fleishman's- I use the Sam's Club industrial size ones not rapid rise)
2 cups sugar
5 cups very warm water
(mix all ingredients till foamy)
2 T vanilla extract
1 t of salt
1 1/2 cups canola oil
5 lbs bread flour ( I like Gold Medal Better for Bread in orange bag)

Knead in a large bowl till dough is consistent and smooth and not too sticky.
Shape into loaves
variations: omit vanilla and add 1T dried minced onion
sprinkle sesame and/or poppy seeds (if tolerated) for an "everything challah"

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes
yield: about 5 medium loaves
