This is such an amazing recipe, I love it! It is super easy and delicious!!
I’ve never made bread before. I’m not a novice to baking, just to baking bread (use of yeast) and it turned out perfect! But like Robin said below, check on that time, I had 5 minutes left of the 30 minimum in this recipe and the bottom started to burn. Also, I used a non stick pan so that probably is the reason. Good recipe!
Absolutely horrible I make different types of breads all the time I followed the recipe exactly and it seemed a bit off to how I normally make bread but I went along with it, I let it rise in a warm place for an hour and a half and hardly anything happened, when I baked it it hardly browned and was super dense definitely don’t waste your time
Oh my! Love it! First time with this recipe and it turned out perfect. Taste is right on, but watch as you bake. Different ovens, different times I suspect. Mine runs a tad hot so next time I will turn it down a notch I think.
This bread turns out gorgeous and delicious. It makes the house smell so good. I made it for Easter this year and told my dad I made two loaves one for the dinner and one just for him. I will definitely be making it again
I desperately wanted to love this. I have 5 kids who eat 2 loaves of challah in 3.8 seconds every Shabbat so I've been looking for a recipe to make 4 loaves so my husband and I can actually have a little. Plus, it's quite a pain to take 5 kids in car seats out for challah every Friday morning.I made it exactly as directed, no substitutions or additions or reductions...in two separate batches (to yield 4 loaves), oiled bowl, flip, rose in the room with our fireplace, made ropes, braided, rose again, egg wash, bake... 30 minutes.... over cooked, second loaf: 25 minutes.... over cooked. Third loaf: 18 minutes, still a bit over cooked but close... final loaf, 12 minutes, just right, but still too dense a loaf, and NONE of them were sweet enough to be traditional challah.Waste of time, waste of ingredients, just.... what a waste. I could not be more disappointed. Guess I'm onto another recipe.Note: I cook most of our meals FROM SCRATCH and bake almost daily. I'm not inexperienced. This recipe is a major let down.
I make this every year during the Hanukkah holiday for my Jewish friend. Him and his family rave that it is the best Challah bread ever! Will be making another loaf for our Christmas dinner. It is absolutely beautiful before and after baking.
We loved this recipe. My braiding wasn't as pretty as their picture, but practice makes perfect, and I plan to make this again.Update: I have now made this many times and my braiding now looks as good as the picture. I've made it with the poppy seeds, with the sesame seeds, but my family loves it best without either.
I have baked this bread following the same procedure , but i kept only about 30 minutes after shaping the bread instead of 1 hour. This was done for my over excitement. I think i should not, even then it was good and tasty. This is my first try. Thanks.
This is nice and tasty.
