Challah Bread, "Shaping"

December 8, 2010 - 9:14am -- Bill and Annie

My wife and I love Challah and use it for a lot of sandwiches.  My problem is the shaping. I would like to step away from tradition and just make regular loafs. The traditional braiding looks beautiful but it does not make good sandwiches or substantial pieces of French Toast. Is their any special steps that have to be taken to achieve my desired results without causing anyone to gasp?

Pullman Loaf

June 12, 2007 - 5:06am -- dwg302

can someone describe how to shape a pullman loaf as opposed to a just a normal loaf pan?  or if you have a good reference where i can look it up that would be ok too.  i would like to make the Hamelman pumpernickel recipe but i can't find anywhere in his book that describes how to shape a pullman loaf.  thanks,
