Challah Bread

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

I followed Gordon's recipe for Challah bread. The only change I made came during the choice of flours. I didn't have any whole wheat around, so instead of 2 cups whole wheat and 2.5 cups flour, I used 3/4 cup of rye flour and the remainder unbleached flour. The taste is slightly nutty, but very tasty.
Thanks for the great recipe.

My braid got a touch bulbous on one end. :)

Great Job! Good enough for me to take to Shabat with me this w/e. :-)

I knew you could make it. Good job on the braid. And the color of the loaf looks beautiful.

I bet it tastes really good. My mouth is watering now! :-D I bet it smelled awesome while it was baking too.

It smelled WONDERFUL when it was baking. I can't believe that the bread came out so light and airy. You have that recipe down to a science,...thanks for sharing it!

And, thanks for the compliment. It was really fun doing the braid. :)
