This bread is amazingly good and super easy! Thank you so much for the recipe.
I am sure the bread is great because as Honna pointed out is a challah recipe, not soley because of the braids but the recipe. If you look up or bake enough of them you will see that the way it is made is challah. I am not knocking it just clarifying. As to metric measurements you can find converters online to help with that as a cup is always 8 ounces and does not mean a cup used for beverages.
Hi! Just wanted to ask what kind of cup you use because cup sizes are different. And I think it's better if you would give me the measurements in grams and metric system??Thank you very much!
Very delicious bread! It has a good texture, nice flavour and a lovely crunch. I'll definitely be making this bread more!
This braided bread is easy to prepare and, with only two risings, is relatively quick. Using either white whole wheat (rather than traditional whole wheat) or only all purpose flour the bread has a tender crumb, thin soft crust, and pleasant flavor. I would like to point out Honna that there are challahs that are not braided (such as the round challahs used on Rosh Hashanah and other holy days and braided breads that are not challahs (Italian scali bread, St. Lucia loaf, and a number of coffee cakes).
Hilla, you can call it what you want, but other cultures can call it a braid. I am really surprised that you found yourself soo offended.
ITS A CHALLAH, not a Braid! it is disgusting to steal a real centuries old recipe and call it something it is not. Challah is the bread we, Jews, bake for every Shabbat, before and after Passover (Pesah), when the livened bread is prohibited for consumption. I am insulted and offended by that hypocritical bane "braid". its a CHALLAH! enjoy yes, it is delicious
Absolutely delicious! My husband and I couldn't wait for it to cool and just tore pieces off! I will make this one of my go to bread recipes.
Halved this recipe and adapted to my Zojirushi BB PAC 20 bread machine. First time I braided bread. Turned out great and my family ate it in two days. Had to bake another this time with poppy seeds.
I make small alterations, walnut oil not canola and only 1 tablespoons of sugar. I have made this multiple times. It is very good.
