    Lee Hock's Note:

    After trying out several different bread machine challah recipes, I have come to find the best one. The challah it produces is so light and the perfect combination of sweet and salty. The bread machine I own is an Oster, nothing fancy. As with all bread machine recipes, I will say every once in a while I will have a flop, no idea why this happens sometimes. This recipe calls for 3 yolks, so I will post a link for something easy to do with the whites: Ultra Moist Easy Chocolate Bundt Cake. Everytime I make challah, I also make this cake.
