Challah on a sunday

Here is Grandma Rosies Challah, my braiding is very very rusty.

I included a quarter in the picture to convey size, this challah is big at 2kg.  Next time I'll increase the amount of sugar by 50% since I prefer them sweeter.  I'll also decrease the size and make 1/2 rolls and 2 smaller loaves.

Thanks for looking.

I love to bake and I am not a professional, just a crazy lady who loves to preserve food, bake and try new recipes. This is my Challah "egg bread". I sometimes use raisins and cinnamon and add honey to egg wash...Is this how it's suppose to look? It tastes great!~Lynn
