    Twisty Ashkenazi bread is usually called Challah; however what really makes Challah "Challah" is not the type of bread but the separation of dough and its subsequent blessing and burning. That being said here are some recipes for Ashkenazi "challah" bread that look really marvelous. My favorite Yamim Noraim Challah recipe is from Diana's Desserts: Challah, like other breads is very forgiving. I have been known to knead less depending on time. Also more flour/ water will be needed depending on the humidity sometimes the same recipe will make dryer dough and sometimes wetter dough. If you like sweeter add more sugar and if you don't like sweeter add less. I actually don't use sugar when I make Challah but maple syrup and/or honey and that usually means using less sweetener. Experiment and enjoy!

    Found it in Its a super easy snack. Post for ZWT 2006.

    Recipe #171916

    I bake challah every week for our Sabbath meal. It's so easy to make in a KitchenAid mixer. Challah tastes great in French Toast or Cinnamon Toast recipes. This challah recipe is my kid's favorite.

    Recipe #73831

    I love this challah recipe! It has no eggs and very little oil but tastes delicious. This recipe can be easily made in a KitchenAid mixer or a bread machine. Although the maple syrup glaze isn't very conventional, I think it tastes great.

    Easy to do using your bread machine to make the dough. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds before baking to add more flavor.

    Recipe #87253

    Many Challah breads either have too many eggs or just not enough. This recipe has just the right amount, about 1 egg per cup of flour. This recipe can also be done on the dough cycle in your bread machine and finished by hand. Best of all it makes THE BEST French toast! Cooking time does not include rising time.

    Recipe #103505

    This egg rich bread is traditionally served in Jewish households to begin the Sabbath, Try serving for breakfast with fruit preserves or slice thick and use to make superb French toast. The recipe comes from Red Star Yeast.

    Recipe #55858

    I owned a bakery for 9 years and this was a favorite. I had a Rabbi that came every Friday for his challah. He liked it so much that it was the only non kosher food allowed in his house!

    One of my favorite challah recipes from The New Jewish Holiday Cookbook: An International Collection of Recipes and Customs. Intricate instructions insure that you won't go wrong. Read the whole recipe before you even attempt to start!

    My friend Debbie Yakobian's son Nadav is in the Israeli army. He brought home this recipe and Debbie has started making it every Friday for the Sabbath. My family and I have been fans of this challah and today I finally got the recipe. My challahs are cooling now but we just couldn't resist and had a taste -- delicious! In spite of the fact that there are no eggs in the dough itself, the challahs are very rich tasting. Just think of what they can do for your French toast or bread pudding!

    Recipe #95386

    AMAZING challah that my mom is famous for. It's a family joke that anyone who has it always says some variation of "it's cake!"/ "why are you serving dessert first?" I've made it a bit healthier by making it with whole-wheat dough. Have fun with the fillings! My mom's traditional one is with cinnamon and sugar, but I've used dried fruit, jam, fresh fruit, seeds, fried onions, fresh basil (makes the bread tastes like pesto), craisins... enjoy!

    Here is my recipe. It looks more difficult than it really is so don't hesitate. I make this every week. There is a story that goes with the addition of the poppyseeds. This recipe really does require a good stand mixer. Don't get in a hurry just enjoy the experience and plan on the children wanting to braid and get involved. Pinch off a bit of dough and give it to them.

    Recipe #235904

    My mom always made delicious challah each week, and I was one of the lucky beneficiaries of her talents. Then I became a teenager, and everything she did was inherently suspect. Sometime in those years (thank G-d, we outgrow them), I came across this recipe for challah and announced triumphantly to my poor mother that her challah had been replaced by a superior recipe. Demonstrating her endless patience and wisdom, she smiled and asked me to share the recipe with her. I did, and she showed both her superior mothering skills and her superior baking skills by making the recipe her own, creating more delicious and nurturing challah than I did. I don't know if it was the recipe or if it is the intention, the love, the blessings she put into it. Either way, here it is, from both of us. You can double this recipe if you want to make enough to take challah with a bracha. Enjoy!!

    Recipe #254032

    Absolutely amazed my guests during Yom Kippur Break Fast! WONDERFUL combination/adaptation of #148108 with an apple filling from Marcy Goldman's Jewish baking cookbook. Recipe looks long - but with only one rise, it's QUICK and easy!

    Recipe #189152

    This is my favorite yeasted bread recipe. I got it from Marcy Goldman's Treasury of Jewish Holiday Baking (The New Bread, or Whallah). It is the first bread recipe I had actually turn out! I live in Colorado, which is higher elevation than most places, so I had to figure out how to adjust recipes. I'm leaving the ingredients the way the recipe was, since most people are closer to sea level. For anyone interested: better flour makes better bread. I buy the expensive organic flour at the local health food store for bread and use cheaper flour for cookies and quick breads.

    Recipe #185935

    Adopted! Original poster's note: This is a healthy whole wheat challah recipe with a light texture.
