Challah with Raisins

This is the follow up of the Challah with Raisins.
The Challah turned out as flavorful as the first Challah with Cranberries and Raisins.  The dough developed very well, and it is very tasty.  This is definitely a winning formula.
The original recipe is from:
Qty - 2 Medium size
Or Qty - 1 Large
Instead of making on large Challah, I divided the dough into two.  One for my sister and one for me.

My Ingredients:
1 tsp sugar
1 cup warm (110F) water
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup Avocado oil
1 tbsp honey
 3 large eggs
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
3 3/4 cups all purpose flour (and up to 1/4 cup extra for kneading)
2/3 cup raisins
TangZong: 35 g Flour + 125 ml water.  Mix well and heat to 65'C.  Strain.
Eggwash:  1 egg yolk, beaten with 1 tsp water
Knead with Paddle first.  Then after adding all ingredients, change to dough hook to knead. The dough is quite wet the first 8 minutes.  Knead until the smooth dough forms.  Approx.   25 min. to 40 min. depending on your mixer power.
Brush dough with egg wash and Bake.
