A classic Jewish challah bread that is sweetened with a bit of honey. The bread is braided to make a beautiful loaf then baked until golden brown.

This is my easy version of Challah, Jewish braided bread. I use a bread machine to get the same great flavour (without the braiding).

This is a very easy recipe designed for minimum preparation. Unlike some challah breads it is not sweet, but if you like add 1/2 cup sugar.

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.

This is my favourite recipe for challah bread that I came up with because I didn't like others that I tasted. This recipe makes a lot - two large braided loaves.

Challah - braided Jewish bread - is a wonderful bread for a first-time breadmaker. You can even make the dough ahead and refrigerate it until next morning. This should slow the yeast's growth so that you can leave it out on the counter until it's ready for the next stage in late afternoon or early evening.

Braided challah looks very impressive but isn't hard to make. Try different toppings with this recipe such as sesame seeds, dried onion flakes, granulated garlic, sea salt or flax seeds.
