What is it?

Challah is the bread traditionally served at the Jewish Sabbath, but  finely grained, eggy, and tender with a hint of honey flavor, challah is delicious anytime. Burnished and deep golden on the outside, it’s one truly impressive loaf of bread. And, its beautiful braid only looks difficult to make. The dough is hardy and forgiving, very little kneading is required, and the braiding involves just four repeating moves.

How to prep:

To make homemade challah, check out Maggie Glezer’s Challah recipe and read the article, Crafting a Loaf of Challah for instructions on braiding the dough or watch the video for a step-by-step demonstration of how to braid challah.
