I added the second egg and hubby complained that it was too eggy. I thought it was okay.
Exactly like store bought! I used the sweet bread setting on medium crust but I would recommend using light next time. I also used the gold medal "better for bread" flour in place of bread flour. Thanks for posting, you saved my bread machine from being given away. :)
This is a good bread recipe. We found it tasted a bit like brioche...it just doesn't have as much egg as the brioche recipe I use. Thanks!
I've made this bread several times, it's great! Thanks for posting!! Wish I had a bigger bread machine so we could have some of this left over! :o( Thanks again!
I have been making this Challah since 2000. Somewhere along the line. I used canola oil instead of margarine and found that the oil made a smoother textured loaf. Also,a tad more yeast. I have tried other recipes and always come back to this one. Our Grand-children look foward to Nana's Challah each Holiday season. I forgot to say that I add 1/4 tsp. vanilla. You cannot really taste it but it does add to the flavor. Oh yes, I use my bread machine to make the dough but then form it into a braid, let it rise again and bake at 350Â° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yummy
used i cup whole wheat flour and milk in pace of water,then needed after bread cycle let rise and baked at 350 for about 30 minutes.We made creme brulee french toast with it and the results were worth all the work.Thanks for posting mrssoupie
Didn't taste like Challah. I did add extra egg. Was easy to slice and rose up nicely, I just wasn't crazy about the taste.
Made this tonight, substituting butter for margarine and allpurpose flour (1C of white whole wheat + 2C unbleached white) and it was so soft in the middle, while having the crispiest crust!
Wonderful! It was a flawlessly delicious bread the first time - but I added an extra egg the second time, and it tasted much more like a flawlessly delicious challah. (Don't tell mom, but I liked it as well as her oven baked)! I used the regular cycle, light crust.
Actually this got a 4.75 from one of my boys. I didn't have any but I was told it was very good.
