I've been learning how to bake breads the past month or so (without much luck with the artisan bread types). BUT, today I decided to try my hand at a Challah. Here is the pictures of the results. Needless to say I am extremely happy with this recipe! Great "crust and crumb" on this one! I LOVE Challah, and this one tops any I've had from the bakeries.

My challah is dry!

I don't have the money to buy Rose Levy Beranbaum's Bread Bible, but I checked a copy out of the library and set out on my first loaf of challah. (If I close the book up tight, perhaps the pages will flatten out again and the library won't notice the flour smudges.) I had been invited to a friend's house for Shabbos and thought it would be nice to take challah.
