Whole wheat bread: Can it be considered a challah?
Bread #45 is a gorgeous whole wheat challah. This, of course, raises the question of whether a 100 percent, or any percentage, whole wheat renders a dough ineligible for being considered a challah. My answer: It depends whom you ask. I say yes, but the rest of the household disagrees. My dog is staying neutral so he can continue to sample all breads. Recipe is from Reinhart's Whole Grain Breads. I have yet to make a good challah with sourdough starter. And then there's the braiding challenge.
