This is a delicious rich bread, braided and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I used about 200g less flour and it turned out perfect. It made 2 HUGE loves so split this recipe in two. Definitely in my favourites file. - 14 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Excellent recipe. I saw that another baker thought theirs came out dry. I add four tablespoons of instant mash and it keeps softer longer. Adjusting the flour may make the bread too light to hold up. Traditionally, I make Challah with one huge braid on the bottom and tuck a tiny braid of four strands onto the top. Using an egg wash over the top after rising makes the loaf shiny and helps the sesame seeds to stick. Great entry! - 14 Jul 2008
