Making Bread: Challah




With the help to two very able and hard-working assistants, I made traditional challah bread for the first time yesterday. (Many thanks to Rachel for the recipe!).

Here is the finished product. I wish I had made the braids tighter so the bread had better shape. But oh, does it taste good. I have been sneaking toasted and buttered slices all day. At this rate, it is unlikely to make it until brunch tomorrow!

Your counters look lovely - I've never attempted challah, or any other bread, so I'm very impressed at your effort. Yum.

The loaves look beautiful. You must have used an egg glaze, no? But where is the recipe?

Looks like you guys had so much fun and my mouth is watering looking at the pics!

Nicely done.
