My baseline for the challah series - my original recipe
Before I embark on a series of challah recipes to learn to make this bread without my bread machine, I have posted a recipe for the original challah. I have been making this bread for about 15 years. It comes out so well that my daughters have gone on record that I should not even try to make anything different because I already make a perfect challah. It is not often that my practically-adult offspring are so positive about their mother's knowledge and ability. So, while they are away, I will be playing around with different recipes and attempting to make challah with only a sourdough starter instead of commercial yeast. Oh, and I am also supposed to be making regular breads at the same time. There might be some vacation days used for this.
