    CardaMom's Note:

    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.

      A family favourite now and I have given it as gifts a couple times already. So easy and yummy. I only used 3.5 cups of flour though and 4 was too much. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you, Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. I made it on Friday just to see how it would turn out and it was amazing! So on Saturday I made 8 loaves. I made the dough and then I cut it in half then, from the half I cut it into thirds so I could braid, then I made 2 mini-challahs. I did add golden raisins.

      My first Challah, and it came out so pretty! I added extra water as recommended and think I ended up adding a little extra flour too lol. I did add the flour a little at a time to the mixer until it formed a ball and pulled away from the sides. I baked at 350 for 40 minutes and it was fine. Thanks!
