I plan to make this week. Went to several conversion sites to get info and found 1 kg = approx. 8 cups of flour, 450 ml = approx 15 oz. of water

Okay, I haven't tasted this yet, but it seemed too simple to work. I had to knead it a bunch to get it smooth and it didn't rise much, but it TOTALLY puffed up when it cooked and now they look SOOOO beautiful... I'll write after shabbat after we've tasted them! I wish I had made more so I could taste them now! Update: Okay, these were BEAUTIFUL inside and out but the state was just so so for me. Nothing out of this world. Just your run of the mill bread with no frills. Again, texture was AMAZING and it was rich (lots of flour to other ingredients) and AMAZINGLY easy to make. I MIGHT try to play with this...do a bit more in the way of sugar or just half whole wheat or oat flour or something...dunno. I'm still looking for a challah with this texture but with sweetness...

Yummy!!! Made 2 huge loaves!!! I braided one into a typical 3 braid loaf. And the second one I did a Star of David (2 triangles). At least that's what it was supposed to be! LOL....delicious nonetheless!

Asolutely the best bread loaves I have made in a long time! And you're right, they are totally idiot proof. I can't believe how easy this bread is to make. Yum!!

Fabulous, amazing, delicious! I followed your recipe exactly, and wow - wow! Never have I eaten a challah like this before, ever... This could be dangerous. I think I'll hit the gym tomorrow dangerous. Dangerously good. Thank you thank you thank you. Now I'm scared to try another challah recipe, I just don't see the point when you've reached perfection. Oh, and apart from praise to the quality, I want to mention this is how much bread I got out of it all: 1 six braided challah (GORGEOUS), 1 three braided challah, 1 magen david shaped challah, and one roll (12 long rolls pre-braiding in total). Wonderful. I can't thank you enough.

This recipe has no equal! It is absolutely amazing and delicious. A little extra work with all the kneading, but I believe it is what makes the difference between good challah and fabulous challah.
