Bread Machine Challah

"This recipe comes from Allrecipe. It had over two hundred reviews. Have not tried it yet, but wanted in my bread cookbook. You might want to add a little more flour if it is not coming away from the side of pan while in the mixing stage. Just don't open the lid while it is rising."

  1. Great recipe. I made it in the bread machine at dough setting. I didn't have to add more flour. I heated the milk and butter a little bit in the microwave first. I used only 1/8 cup sugar cause I was afraid it would be too sweet. And I'm glad I used only 1/8 cup. I shaped it in a bread and then let rise in the oven that was a little bit warm for at least 40 minutes. I removed it from the oven, preheated it to 350 F and then baked it for 20 minutes. Great texture, light. Thanks Nature Lover :) Made for Farm Cooking event
  2. This is a very tasty bread. I didn't weave it but just made a french style loaf with it. I only used my ABM to make the dough then I shaped it and put it on a stonewear sheet with a few grains of cornmeal on it. It is a very slow, slow riser even though I increased the yeast to 2 1/4 teaspoons. This was my first time to make a loaf of challah dough as well as my first time to taste it. It is a bread that I will make again but will probably increase the yeast up to 1 Tablespoon. MADE FOR SPRING PAC 2010
  3. I was looking for a rich eggy dough to make crescent rolls. This worked quite well, even though I used regular AP flour. The dough comes out firm and dense. However, it is a little slow to rise. All in all, it is pretty good, just not quite as rich as I was looking for. I may even make a challah out of it next! Thanks to Naturelover! . . . . Janet


Well it is December 20, 2009 and DH and I are sitting on our lanai having a cocktail. Just got done with eating some chicken wings, courtesy of a Recipezaar recipe. They were delicious, of course. <br>The picture above is yours truly with one of our two dogs, Fritz a Cairn Terrier. Our other pooch is Kelly, a Miniature Schnauzer. We will try and post a picture of her at a later date. <br>I should have made my name Naturelovers, because my DH is enjoying this site as much as I do! <br>We are retired and enjoy the outdoors here in FL, like boating, fishing, beaches and gardening. <br>Between us we have 6 children, 8 grandchildren and 2 great-grandsons and 1 great-granddaughter on the way. I have always enjoyed cooking and Recipezaar has really opened up new horizons. <br>I am well noted for finding a great recipe that is a big hit and then losing it. I'm hoping by joining Recipezaar, I will lose that reputation. I remember one recipe, about 48 years ago, and yes I still remember it. I found the recipe in a local newspaper and it is gone. It was for a German dish, sauerbraten, not to vinegary, no gingersnaps and served with dumplings. Oh my, was it good, but alas, gone.
