This is a really simple and mouth watering Challah. The bread machine saves heaps of washing up time. It makes a 1.5 pound loaf.

This recipe is amazing! I used whole wheat flour and did need to add a little more water as it mixed in the machine, but probably not much more than an ounce. Very pleased with the results!

- 2 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
