Recipe by Mrsspeevs

I pretty much developed this recipe on my own. I fiddled and tweaked for months until I got it just right. It is just scrumptious.

This is a very good tasting bread and easy to make. The only negative I have to say is that no-way does it make 4-5 loaves of bread. (did I misunderstand something?). The 3.5 c of flour are what is, typically, used to make 1-2 medium-sized loaves of bread The dough produced by this recipe yielded 2 smallish loaves of challah for me. Still delicious, though.
