It's only a little extra work to make a fancy braided loaf. This version does not include butter. Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Challah Bread Video.
Beautiful challah recipe! At first I thought two loaves would be too much, but we used it for everything - challah french toast, sandwiches. Could imagine challah bread pudding being divine. Thanks for the recipe, Nadia - 16 May 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
