Challah Jewish Celebration Bread

There is nothing better than homemade challah bread. A freshly baked loaf is so delicious that calls only for butter, while the leftover bread makes wonderful French toasts and delicious Bostock served with almond cream and berries. Challah, the braided Sabbath bread is made with the enriched yeasted dough which contains oil and eggs. The generous use of eggs gives challah a beautiful deep golden crust and exquisite flavour. This bread doesn’t require any special techniques although its braided form may look complicated. The dough is quite versatile and can be used to make any other baked goods such as dinner buns and cinnamon rolls. Find the recipe here…
