Challah

Homemade challah bread
Every holiday season, I like to make a few loaves of challah. It is so delicious- eggy and sweet! Here is the recipe I use; the only thing I do differently is I use 1 egg and 3 egg yolks instead of 3 eggs. Extra honey is always good, too!


Proofing the yeast
Mixing it up
After adding flour, the dough comes together
A lightly floured surface for kneading

The braiding process begins

I never knew bread could look so gorgeous! It is like a piece of art with that gorgeous braid, yum!

Dat glaze.

It looks better than some of the challah I've gotten at Deli.

Thanks! Sometimes I braid the challah dough into a circle, which also looks nice, but I like the loaves like these best. Glad you like them too :-)
