    Do you think I could use 2 egg yolks instead of a whole egg? If I add an extra should I plan to make other changes? The recipe doesn’t seem eggy enough

    Hi, excited to try this. What setting loaf size is this for? My machine does 1, 1.5 and 2 lb loaves. Which is this recipe for?

    By Anna <br/>on June11, 2012<br/><br/> I give 5 stars for the Excellent flavour and texture. I used the machine to make the dough and then braid it .. Let it rise for 35-40 mins . Egg wash and bake at 350F for 25 mins

    Made this tonight, substituting butter for margarine and allpurpose flour (1C of white whole wheat + 2C unbleached white) and it was so soft in the middle, while having the crispiest crust!

    Have made this several times. Family loves it. Use bread machine on dough cycle and then bake in oven in loaf pan. Doesn't last long at our house.

    This is an excellent, easy recipe. I used the machine to make the dough, then formed it into a loaf, let it rise again and baked it at 350F for 25 minutes. I cut back the salt to 1 tsp. due to my sodium restrictions. The dough feels satiny and the resulting bread is very high rising, with a fine, moist texture. The flavor isn't quite challah, but that may be easy to fix by adding an egg yolk to the whole egg. I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks for posting.

    Thia recipe is totally awesome, I use it to make Pan de Jamon, which is a venezuelan tradition for the holidays. This recipe brought back my most treasured childhood memories :)

    Exactly like store bought! I used the sweet bread setting on medium crust but I would recommend using light next time. I also used the gold medal "better for bread" flour in place of bread flour. Thanks for posting, you saved my bread machine from being given away. :)

    I have been making this Challah since 2000. Somewhere along the line. I used canola oil instead of margarine and found that the oil made a smoother textured loaf. Also,a tad more yeast. I have tried other recipes and always come back to this one. Our Grand-children look foward to Nana's Challah each Holiday season. I forgot to say that I add 1/4 tsp. vanilla. You cannot really taste it but it does add to the flavor. Oh yes, I use my bread machine to make the dough but then form it into a braid, let it rise again and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yummy

    I made this last night and it was delicious. When It came out we all tried it and loved it, but the best part about it is that it's even tastier today. I used butter instead of margarine but followed it exactly otherwise. The house smelled great while this was in the bread machine. This is the second bread machine recipe of yours that I have tried and both were winners. Thanks for sharing:)
