I enjoyed preparing this recipe very much.  It's easy to complete in a single day, I believe it would rise even if you stacked bricks on top of it, the oven spring is generous but not excessive, the compliments are countless.

I love to make Challah Bread. Besides the richness in flavor, it can add a festive look to your table, especially with the more complex braids like the 6-strand braid. Here's a video of how to do it. This website does a good job with how-to videos. http://www.expertvillage.com/video/20046_challah-bread-six-strands.htm


 


Here's how they look when completed...



Give it a try the next time you make Challah, and post a picture for us.

Do you cut slices with a knife or pull the loaf apart as buns? Dave

Well, Dave, I prefer to slice it with a good bread knife. It does, however, lend itself to pulling apart for a rustic country meal so don't be shy about doing your own thing.
