    petlover's Note:

    I know there are alot of challah recipes on here but this is really great! I use bread flour but the recipe calls for all purpose. I also use the kitchenaid mixer to make the dough. This challah is not too sweet , if you like a sweeter challah then add 1 Tb honey and increase the sugar to 4 tsp.

      It's in the oven now so it's too early top rate. However, you need more flour than called for in this recipe so don't be shy about adding lots more slowly.
