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 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 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yummy

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.
