This challah comes from a friend who gave me HER friend's recipe - and I don't even know if she knows how many people it has been given to! WARNING: This recipe makes 8 medium sized loaves, so if you don't a bowl big enough or the freezer space, you might want to reduce it. This challah is sweet, rich and a little dense (not hard, just... weighty), so if you are looking for light as air and fluffy, this is not what you're looking for. It's addictive fresh out of the oven, perfect for french toast, and a wonderful base recipe for yeast cakes such as Chocolate Babka. A note: the recipe says to bake it at 350, but I found that with the high sugar content the challahs browned too quickly so I bake mine at 325. If your oven is more even than mine (likely) feel free to try the higher temperature.
